Danny Huston, star of The Proposition and 30 Days Of Night, has joined the cast of American Horror Story: Coven.

Bloody Disgusting reports that Huston will be playing Jessica Lange’s “sexy (and dangerous) boyfriend.” Given that the third season of American Horror Story is about a coven of witches, we’re willing to put good money on that ‘dangerous’ part not working out too well for him.

Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials, and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.

American Horror Story: Coven begins on 9 October on FX in the US and 29 October on FOX in the UK. You can buy American Horror Story Season 1-2 on DVD for £32 at Amazon.co.uk.
