Dylan McDermott Joins Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story

Dylan McDermott has been cast in Ryan Murphy's FX pilot American Horror Story as Ben, a sensitive therapist and husband to Connie Britton's Vivien. The show, which Murphy's co-creator Brad Falchuk described as a subversive take on the genre of horror (and which we hear is super twisted), centers on a couple and their two teenage children who move into a creepy house in San Francisco formerly occupied by "Larry the Burn Guy" (Dennis O'Hare) and next door to nosy neighbor Jessica Lange and her daughter, who has Down syndrome.
