James Cromwell is very adept at playing some truly scary characters, such as the role he played as former SS officer turned mad scientist in "American Horror Story: Asylum". However, Carter Matt reports on March 4 that Cromwell may not be returning to FX this season because he's taken a lead role on ABC's "Betrayal" that could limit his time.
There was no mention as of yet whether there would be an available role for Cromwell or what kind of character he would play in the third season, however, there is still time to make the call or throw him in as a guest role if the time comes that someone needs to fill the position.
A final call as to whether James Cromwell as well as Dylan McDermott will be joining the "American Horror Story" cast will be made in May. So far, seasoned "AHS" actors Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, and Francis Conroy have all signed on for a new role in the horror drama.
Do you hope that James Cromwell will have the time for an "American Horror Story" role?
