‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ spoilers: Eric Stonestreet returns!

In addition to there being some great news for Eric Stonestreet when it comes to actually winning a Primetime Emmy Award on Sunday night, there is some even more exciting news to share: he is teaming up with Ryan Murphy yet again.

According to a report from TVLine, the “Modern Family” star will be stopping by for an episode of “American Horror Story: Asylum” airing later this year. Who will he be playing? Murphy is still keeping quiet when it comes to some of the more specific details, but what we do know for sure is that he is going to play a killer of some sort in the famed asylum ran in some shape or form by Jessica Lange’s character.

This is of course the second time that Stonestreet has flexed his dramatic muscles on this show. Last season, he also took a breather from the ABC sitcom to play a man suffering from all sorts of mental problems, but the difference here was that he was living inside of a bubble of fear. This time around, he will be the one striking fear into the hearts of other people. This goes along with what is one of the Murphy’s goals for this new season, which was to give everyone that was associated with his program the first season something new to do this time around.

The new season of “American Horror Story” is going to premiere on FX Wednesday, October 17 on FX, and it is currently unclear just what episode Stonestreet is going to appear in.
