Fans of Torchwood: Miracle Day’s blue-eyed man will be happy to hear that the actor who plays him, Teddy Sears, has been cast on American Horror Story, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The highly anticipated new series from Glee co- Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk has Sears playing one half of a gay couple who formerly owned a creepy home where Ben and Vivien (Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton) now reside. Sears’s love interest is Zachary Quinto, star of Heroes and Star Trek. In addition to Torchwood, Sears has also appeared in several TV shows (Law & Order, Dollhouse) and in A Single Man (as Colin Firth’s neighbor).
