Even though “American Horror Story: Coven” is getting further along, there is still a mystery out there surrounding whether or not we will see Zachary Quinto. One thing we can promise now? If he does end up making an appearance, it’s sadly not going to be anything more than just a one or two-episode arc unlike his turn as Bloody Face last year.
So what’s the reason for the change this year? It has nothing to do with a lack of interest, but rather, Quinto is going to be taking part in what is one of our favorite plays of all time in “The Glass Menagerie” on Broadway (which has to be nice change since it’s not Spock or someone who is making furniture out of other people’s skin). Check out the man’s comments in an interview with E! News:
“I’m actually going to do a play on Broadway in the fall … But the nature of [American Horror Story] is such that I’m sure [executive producer] Ryan [Murphy] could call and say, ‘Could you fly down on your day off and do one episode?’ And if he does, I would always be open to that. But we haven’t had any conversations. So as of now I’m not planning to be a part of it.”
Quinto’s role during the first two seasons was varied. While he was unable to do anything other than a small arc the first go-around thanks to some other commitments, his turn as Bloody Face last year lasted almost the full length of “American Horror Story: Asylum” until he was finally killed off. (Unfortunately, it took a while longer to dispose of his equally-evil son.)
On the flip side, most of the other stars from this past season are staying around for more from Murphy and company. If you want to catch a brief teaser from Sarah Paulson on what role she will be playing next, all you have to do is click here.
