Freshly re-minted Emmy winner Eric Stonestreet has booked himself a return trip to FX’s American Horror Story, series creator Ryan Murphy told TVLine on the red carpet at TV’s biggest night.
In Season 1 of AHS, Stonestreet guest-starred as Derek, a psych patient who was terrified of urban legends such as “Piggy Man.” This time around, in an episode of American Horror Story: Asylum, which is set at a 1960s mental institution, Murphy says the actor will play a killer.
