Denis O'Hare on 'American Horror Story': Actor Joins 'Coven'


Just when we thought the "American Horror Story: Coven" cast couldn't get any better, Ryan Murphy announced that Denis O'Hare was returning for Season 3.

Murphy announced the news that O'Hare -- who played Larry "The Burn Guy" Harvey on Season 1 of the FX series -- via Twitter on Saturday.

Although not much is known about the FX series, it is rumored to involve witches, part of it is set in New Orleans, and it has an undeniably great cast. In addition to O'Hare, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe have also hopped on board.

"It's a really cool story that we've been talking about for a couple of years, and this seemed like the year to do it," Murphy teased of the plot of "Coven" in March.

"American Horror Story: Coven" premieres in October on FX.
