Denis O’Hare To Play ‘Collector Of Freaks’ on American Horror Story
By Alex Panisch
With the world eagerly awaiting the premier American Horror Story: Freak Show, it’s slightly galling how little we know about it. All we have is that it’s going to be set in a Florida circus and that Jessica Lange might sound German. We can’t just go off that.
Luckily for AHS fan(atic)s like myself, Denis O’Hare, who played the thoroughly creepy Spaulding last season, dished to New York magazine’s Jennifer Vineyard.
O’Hare told Vineyard that he and Lange are going to be at odds in AHS: Freak Show. Vineyard reports, “’I’m going to be working at cross-purposes with her. We’re going to be like this,’ he said, crossing his fingers. ‘We’ll have lots of scenes with each other, but we’ll be battling.’”
It seems that Denis may play a more central role in Freak Show, as his character will appear in all 10 episodes. On top of that, O’Hare says that rather than playing a freak, he’ll play “a collector of freaks.”
