'American Horror Story' Alum Denis O'Hare Returns for 'Coven'
Denis O'Hare is back in the American Horror Story fold.
The actor, who played Larry "The Burn Guy" Harvey on the freshman run of the FX anthology series, will return for the third season.
Showrunner Ryan Murphy made the announcement Saturday, tweeting that the Emmy nominee is on board for the witch-themed third season, titled Coven.
While little is known about Coven, producers said at PaleyFest in March that the series would again search for haunted places in America. Murphy previously told The Hollywood Reporter that the next installment would feature three characters playing real people, with co-star Kathy Bates being one of them.
O'Hare, who earned a supporting actor Emmy nomination for his role in the Connie Britton/Dylan McDermott-starring first season of AHS, joins a rapidly growing cast of all-stars including Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone, Gabourey Sidibe, Bates and returning players Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy and Lily Rabe.
Season three will bow in October.
O'Hare, whose credits include The Good Wife, J. Edgar and Murphy's adaptation of The Normal Heart for HBO, is repped by Innovative.
