Oh, how we can't wait to see what Ryan Murphy has in store for Matt Bomer on American Horror Story: Freak Show.

"The freakier, the better," Bomer said. "Bring it on!"

When we chatted a few days ago, Bomer insisted he didn't know what he'll be playing on the FX show. "There's not much out of my comfort zone anymore," he said.

Yes!

American Horror Story: Freak Show is set to premiere on Oct. 8 and will be set at a carnival.

Bomer will join fellow guest star Patti LaBelle as well as returning cast members Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and Evan Peters.

Lange plays Elsa Mars, the owner of one of the last remaining freak shows in America. The year is 1952, and the setting is Jupiter, Fla. Paulson plays a two-headed woman, and Michael Chiklis is strong man Wendell Del Toredo, who was once married to Bates' character, Effil Darling, and is Bassett's character's husband. Peters plays their son, Jimmy Darling.

This is the third time Murphy and Bomer have worked together. Bomer appeared on Glee and also earned an Emmy nomination for his work as a man dieing of AIDS in Murphy's HBO adaptation of Larry Kramer's play The Normal Heart.
