One of American Horror Story’s original stars is returning for 1984.
Leaked set photos have confirmed that Dylan McDermott is filming for the show’s current season and will star alongside Emma Roberts and Angelica Ross. The actor was a series regular for Murder House and Asylum.
In the photos, the Golden Globe-winning star sports a pornstache and a terrible 80-inspired wig – could he be of relation to Matthew Morrison’s character Trevor? They look identical, so we wouldn’t be shocked.
1984 follows five teenagers – played by Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, Cody Fern, Gus Kenworthy and DeRon Horton – who become camp counsellors for the summer to escape the wrath of a Los Angeles serial killer called The Night Stalker.
There, they encounter a lunatic called Mr Jingles who slaughtered nine people at the camp 14 years prior.
1984 also stars Leslie Grossman, John Carroll Lynch, Orla Brady, Lou Taylor Pucci and Zach Villa. It’s the first season of American Horror Story to not feature series mainstays such as Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.
It’s rumoured that another OG cast member will be making their comeback in an upcoming episode.
On IMDB, it has been reported that the show’s 101st episode, The Lady in White, will feature the stunt double of Lily Rabe, who previously starred in Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freakshow, Hotel, Roanoke and Apocalypse.
IMDB isn’t a reliable source by any means, but the show has featured the return of several of its cast members in short capacities before such as Angela Bassett, Lange and Rabe in Apocalypse and Roberts in Cult – so it seems likely.
