“American Horror Story” Season 4 is getting some “American Beauty” in the form of Wes Bentley.
TV Line reports that the actor has been cast for the annual two-part Halloween episode, which is tentatively scheduled for the last two Wednesdays in October. Bentley will play Eddie, a “dark tormentor” from Kathy Bates’ character’s past who is out for revenge against her.

It features returning faces Bates, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson (as the two-headed woman), Angela Bassett, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe and Frances Conroy, plus new face Michael Chiklis as the strongman who is Peters’ father and Bassett’s husband.
“American Horror Story: Freak Show” premieres in September on FX.
