Ryan Murphy announced on his Twitter that the one and only Ian McShane will appear on this season of American Horror Story. McShane will, as Murphy put it, “tussle with Jessica Lange” for two episodes. Two episodes is awfully short, so either he’s going to die or he’s going to just pop into Sister Jude’s asylum and quickly realize he’s better of at the Gem.
