  • Hopefully this get picked up so that he won’t be able to film AHS next season. In a show with such a brilliant cast, he has been the weakest link in both seasons.

  • This will never make series. CBS only does procedurals that don’t confuse their audience with things like plot.

  • I don’t think you can call him an AHS vet if he did only one season… A better intro would be The Practice vet…

        • How…

          • And in how many episodes did he act in? Hmm? He was the main feature in only one season. A veteran is usually someone who has been in something more than 3 seasons.
            MY point is that TVLine uses the veteran term too lightly…

  • A Bruckheimer show will most likely be a go
