Another day, another casting announcement: The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that FX will add Matt Bomer to American Horror Story: Freak Show.

While there are no details just yet on Bomer's character, he joins an already stellar cast, including Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, and Gabourey Sibide. But, in a series that promises all things freaky, we're kind of curious how Bomer will fare. Will we see him tricked out in the kind of makeup and special effects typically reserved for X-Men movies? And, for how many episodes will he grace the screen? Ryan Murphy seems to know what he's doing, but we have many questions.

The horror anthology is a bit of a different venture for the White Collar actor. All we really know is that the show is set in 1952 (and that Murphy asked Bomer to be in it). We also know that the actor is very cute.

Freak Show premieres October 8. And, Bomer casting makes for much sexier news than the trailer featuring the forked tongue. (Hollywood Reporter)
