Zachary Quinto, Star Trek XI‘s Spock, is in talks for a guest star role for at least four episodes of a new thriller set in Los Angeles.
Quinto is up for the role of Chad on FX’s “psychosexual thriller” American Horror Story, where he would play the gay former owner of a spooky mansion who befriends one of the new owners.
In American Horror Story, the Harmon family (Dylan McDermott as Ben and Connie Britton as Vivien) moves from Boston to Los Angeles after a miscarriage and affair rock their family. But the mansion into which they move is anything but healing.
Some of the characters that will be haunting the Harmons include “a burning man, a man in a rubber suit, a creepy maid and a nosy neighbor.”
Quinto is expected to first appear in a two-part Halloween episode.
American Horror Story premieres on FX on October 5.
