It’s being reported that Morris Chestnut has joined the cast of FX’s new sci-fi drama series American Horror Story.

Chestnut, who recently starred in the now-cancelled “V” television series, will play the role of Luke in a multi-episode arc.

“American Horror Story”, co-created by former “Nip/Tuck” executive producers and current “Glee” co-creators/executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, revolves around The Harmons, a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish. The all star cast features Dylan McDermott (“The Practice”) as “Ben Harmon,” a psychiatrist; Connie Britton (“Friday Night Lights”) as “Vivien Harmon,” Ben’s wife; Taissa Farmiga as “Violet,” the Harmons’ teenage daughter; Jessica Lange (Tootsie, Blue Sky, Grey Gardens) in her first-ever regular series TV role as “Constance,” the Harmons’ neighbor; Evan Peters (“One Tree Hill”) plays “Tate Langdon,” one of Ben’s patients; and Denis O’Hare (“The Good Wife”) as “Larry Harvey.” Guest stars for the series include Frances Conroy (“Six Feet Under”) as the Harmons’ housekeeper; Alexandra Breckenridge (Dirt) as the Harmons’ housekeeper; and Jamie Brewer as Constance’s daughter.

Chestnut will also star in African-American playwright David E Talbert‘s “What My Husband Doesn’t Know” with singer Michelle Williams. The play will run from Oct. 13 – 16 at Hobby Center’s Sarofim Hall in Houston, Texas.

American Horror Story premieres Wed. Oct. 5 at 10PM ET/PT only on FX.
