Ding-ding! An Emmy-nominated villain from Breaking Bad is coming to American Horror Story. Veteran character actor Mark Margolis, who played the stroke-addled wheelchair-bound drug lord Hector “Tio” Salamanca on the AMC drama, has been cast in a recurring role in AHS: Asylum.

In addition to Breaking Bad, Margolis has played memorable characters on projects such as Scarface, HBO’s Oz and The Wrestler. We don’t have many details about his new character on the FX horror drama. Okay, we don’t have any details about his character. He plays a recurring character named Sam Goodwin, that’s all we got. But we do have two other actors who we can also exclusively report are coming on board in guest-star roles: Amy Farrington (Hung, The New Adventures of Old Christine) has been cast as a worried mother on the show and David Chisum (One Life to Live) will play a loving husband.

American Horror Story returns to FX on Oct. 17. And if you didn’t already see it, one of the show’s ads received top marks in our annual Fall TV ads graded gallery.
