    American Horror Story: Freak Show just got hotter.

    Matt Bomer of White Collar and Magic Mike fame will appear as a guest star on the fourth installment of Ryan Murphy's hit FX mini-series, Entertainment Weekly reported on Sunday.

    Details about his character, who the outlet said will appear on one episode, were not provided. FX and parent company FOX has not confirmed the report.

    The show's creator had directed the 36-year-old hottie in the 2013 HBO movie The Normal Heart, which earned Bomer his first Emmy nomination.

    Entertainment Weekly quoted Murphy as saying at a recent pre-Emmys party that he had to work around the schedule of the actor, who will appear in Magic Mike XXL, in order to be able to have him appear on American Horror Story: Freak Show.
