"American Horror Story: Freak Show" is adding yet another actor to its already-sprawling cast, with Wes Bentley set to join the ensemble for a two-episode arc.

TVLine reports that the "American Beauty" and "Hunger Games" star will appear on the series's two-part Halloween episode, and play a character named Eddie, described as "a dark tormentor from Kathy Bates' [character's] past who is hell-bent on revenge."

Bentley is just the latest big name to flock to the FX horror anthology series, and joins stars Bates, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy, and Michael Chiklis in the latest chapter. "Freak Show" is set in 1952 at the last show of its kind in America, and will feature Paulson as conjoined twins and Chiklis as a strongman.

Bentley's episodes are tentatively scheduled to air on October 21 and 28. He'll next be seen on the big screen in Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar."
