Happy birthday, Evan Peters: The sexiest, most intense GIFs of the 'American Horror Story' star

evan-peters-american-horror-story-coven.jpg Evan Peters was a relative unknown before "American Horror Story" came along. He had done a handful of "One Tree Hill" episodes and was part of the short-lived ABC series "Invasion," but he really burst onto the scene in 2011 as Jessica Lange's on-screen son Tate Langdon on the FX horror drama.

On Monday (Jan. 20), we'd like to wish him a very happy 26th birthday and celebrate with his sexiest, most intense GIFs.

We also have our fingers crossed to see Peters in Season 4 of "American Horror Story," the details of which are starting to trickle out. He recently told io9 that the show's anthology format, changing characters, settings and time periods every season, is one of the things he likes the most about it.

"It's amazing, you get to see a different side of each [actor]," says Peters. "When you're acting with them, you see them change into somebody else and you have to react off of that person, and not who they were last season. It's a completely different story, so I think it's easy, because the writing is so good, to slip into it for everybody."

"American Horror Story" airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
