As first reported by E!, Rabe’s character will share an “ungodly connection” with Connie Britton’s Vivien Harmon, who, with husband Ben (Dylan McDermott) are the new residents of the home.
From Glee co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, American Horror Story revolves around Harmons, who move from Boston to Los Angeles in a bid to rebuild their family after an affair and miscarriage.
