It's not known what character Zylka will play on the Ryan Murphy-Brad Falchuk drama — in keeping with the show's tradition of secrecy, details are being kept under tight wraps. However, Zylka is joining a cast that includes returning stars Jessica Lange, Evan Peters and Zachary Quinto, as well as newcomers James Cromwell, Chloe Sevigny, "The Voice" coach Adam Levine and Lizzie Brochere.

As Murphy revealed after the drama's first season, the second run of "American Horror Story" will build from the ground up, transplanting from its initial Los Angeles setting and employing an all-new cast of characters. (Quinto, Peters and Lange will play different roles than the ones they played in the first season.)
