In the wake of the news that Jessica Lange will not be joining the new season of American Horror Story, showrunner Ryan Murphy has been pulling out all the stops in a desperate gamble to keep the fanbase from tuning out after the disastrously lopsided Freak Show. His latest bribe is the announcement that Wes Bentley will be returning to the show, joining Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, and Cheyenne Jackson as a series regular.

It is unlikely that he will return in the role of two-faced, freak-collecting Halloween demon Edward Mordrake, but one can only hope that his sideburns are equally out of control. After The Hunger Games and Freak Show, crazy facial hair on this actor has kind of become an expectation.
