One of the many cool things about "American Horror Story" is how actors and actresses from previous seasons are brought back for the new seasons, playing all-new characters but bringing a sense of familiarity to the show with their memorable performances. Over the weekend Ryan Murphy took to Twitter to announce that another fan-favorite from the successful first season will be returning to join the cast of "American Horror Story: Coven" later this year.

You may remember O'Hare as Larry "The Burn Guy" Harvey on "American Horror Story's" first season, a performance so chilling that it earned the actor an Emmy nomination. He joins perennial returnee Evan Peters as the only male actors announced thus far for "Coven".
"American Horror Story: Coven" comes at us in October on FX with a cast that includes Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Gabourey Sidibe, Angela Bassett, Emma Roberts, and Patti Lupone.
