Hot on heels of Eric Stonestreet's Emmy Award win, it's revealed that he would join the cast of "American Horror Story: Asylum". While he appeared as a psych patient named Derek in the first season, the former "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" star would not reprise the role in the upcoming installment.
To TVLine, "AHS" creator Ryan Murphy spilled the beans that the Cameron Tucker of "Modern Family" would guest star in an episode as a killer. The writer went on teasing that Stonestreet would be featured alongside Sarah Paulson, who takes a role of a lesbian journalist named Lana.
Stonestreet took home the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy prize at the September 23 Primetime Emmy Awards for his role on "Modern Family". It was the second year in a row the 41-year-old star won the title.
"AHS" itself bagged one trophy through Jessica Lange's win for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie. The show will kick off the second season Wednesday, October 17 at 10 P.M. ET on FX.

After two months of dancing on "So You Think You Can Dance" stage, two of the contestants came home as champions. They were Eliana Girard and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp who were unveiled as America's favorite female and male dancer respectively in the season 9 finale, marking the first time ever ballet dancer(s) won the show.
Eliana and Chehon, who both landed on the bottom six once but were saved by the judges, edged out Tiffany Maher and Cyrus "Glitch" Spencer who were also in the final four. The jazz dancer and the popping/animating dancer had a clean record as they were never in danger of getting eliminated.
The Tuesday, September 18 episode was kicked off with a group dance by all 20 finalists. Prior to the result announcement, the contestants also performed a repeat of the judges' favorite dances. The top four, meanwhile, got a chance to pick their favorite numbers which they reprised in the finale.
Carly Rae Jepsen made the night merrier by taking the stage to perform her new song "This Kiss". Cyrus additionally danced a new number with past contestant Comfort Fedoke, while Stephen "tWitch" Boss teamed up with Christopher Scott for a robotic dance.

Mike Ehrmentraut is coming to "Parks and Recreation."
In an episode of the fifth season of "Parks and Rec," Jonathan Banks from "Breaking Bad" will play the father of Adam Scott's character, Ben Wyatt.
"We were working the character description of Ben's dad," explains "Parks" co-creator Mike Schur, "and I said aloud, 'He should act like Mike Ehrmentraut.' So somebody said, 'Well, why can't we just get Jonathan Banks?'"
Schur is a huge "Breaking Bad" fan, as are the rest of his writers.
"To me, at this exactly moment in time, he's everyone I know's favorite actor," says Schur. "After that arc" — which I spoke to Banks about here — "he's the actor about which we've spent the most time talking in the room over the last year. It's awesome. He's going to be here at 2 p.m. today and everyone's geeking out. A lot of the writers are coming up with reasons to be down on the set today."
Banks' episode will likely be the season's sixth. The season premiere is next Thursday, September 20, at 9:30 p.m. on NBC.

Adding more senses of mysteries to "American Horror Story: Asylum", a new poster and a fresh teaser have been released via the show's official Facebook page. The one-sheet puts together the main characters in a room which has a long alley. Some patients are tied on the wall.
The newly-unveiled teaser, meanwhile, is titled "Save Us". It sees two nuns, one dressing in white and the other in black, carrying a bucket each in an all-white room which was featured in a previous promo. Not featuring a blue coat like before, this time the video gives a look at an inmate who is lying on the floor and being tied up.
The second installment of "AHS" will premiere Wednesday, October 17 at 10 P.M. ET on FX. The story is set in the 1960s at an institution for the criminally insane on the East Coast, where Jessica Lange's Sister Jude serves as an administrator.
Creator Ryan Murphy recently said the show not only features nuns and inmates, but also a serial killer and aliens. "I think they want to be scared. I'm just writing what I would like to see," he opened up. "I'm scared of aliens and I'm scared of Nazis and I'm scared of nuns. So it's the perfect stew of horror and fear."
