American Horror Story's second season has kicked it into scary high gear after a successful first year on the FX Network. Set in an insane asylum during 1964, the series stars Jessica Lange as Sister Jude and Zachary Quinto as Dr. Oliver Thredson. In the first season of the horror show, Quinto played Chad, a previous gay owner of the haunted house.

The star of television's Heroes and the movie reboot of Star Trek came out of the closet in October of last year. He was a supporter of gay rights prior to that working with the Trevor Project and the It Gets Better Project.

His theater credits include such LGBT notables as Angels in America and The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later, about the murder of Matthew Shepard.

His character has been key to the new season of "Horror Story" with the recent big reveal that he is the sadistic skin-fetish killer Bloody Face. Windy City Times talked to him the day after this shocking episode.
