When American Horror Story – the new series by Glee executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk – debuts Oct. 5 on FX, the spooky series will feature a number of familiar faces – and herald the television return of Heroes’ baddie Zachary Quinto (who played Sylar, pictured above). The Hollywood Reporter says Quinto will play the recurring role of Chad, a former owner of the haunted mansion now owned by Dylan McDermott (The Practice) and Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights). Writer Tim Minear (The X-Files, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse and numerous other series with major cool cred) has also joined the series. Quinto’s character will debut in the first of a two-part Halloween episode. Fans of Quinto (or FNL’s Connie Britton, for that matter) should check out the screen-worn wardrobe items (including a full outfit from season three – complete with Hail to the Chief apron) available now at VIP Fan Auctions (as well as other Heroes cast members).
