A Deadwood actor is going to hang out in FX’s loony bin. Ryan Murphy tweeted Wednesday that Ian McShane, best known for his memorable run on the HBO drama, is set to guest star on American Horror Story: Asylum. The show bows Oct. 17. Unfortunately, we don’t know his character or episode number. Dang!

The Golden Globe winning McShane just wrapped the independent feature Cuban Fury, in which he plays a salsa dance Instructor. He will also play King Brahmwell in Jack the Giant Killer, directed by Bryan Singer, for March 2013.
