Actor Zachary Quinto has joined the cast of American Horror Story as a series regular and co-male lead in Season 2 of the hit FX series.

The actor played Chad Warwick during a four-episode arc in American Horror Story Season 1, one of the former owners of the Harmon family's creepy house. The actor will play a whole new character in Season 2, as one of the two men set on tormenting Emmy winner Jessica Lange's new character. This upcoming season will be set on the East Coast.

Series creator Ryan Murphy also revealed that three more actors from the first season have signed to come back for Season 2, offering the identities of these actors at the show's PaleyFest panel in Los Angeles on Friday night. Returning are Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, and Lily Rabe.

Ryan Murphy was reluctant to offer any more information about this upcoming run of new episodes. He only had this to say.

"We don't want to talk about it too much, we're still writing, anybody could pop up at any time. everyone is playing the opposite of what they played before. The only real rule on this show is no werewolves and no vampires."

Casting is currently under way for the second male lead in American Horror Story Season 2, alongside Zachary Quinto.
