Neal McDonough is crossing from the Arrowverse into the Murphyverse.
The celebrity, who spent five years playing the villainous Damien Darhk throughout The CW’s roster of superhero shows, is linking the upcoming tenth season of American Horror Story for a series regular.
McDonough is playing a character named Dwight”Ike” Eisenhower, though that raises more questions than it answers, as he is not playing the U.S. President of the same name. (Then again, Denis O’Hare did play with a character called Liz Taylor at AHS: Hotel, so who knows?)
Officially titled American Horror Story: Double Feature, the brand new season premieres Wednesday, Aug. 25 at 10/9c on FX. Episodes will be available to stream the following day through FX on Hulu.
McDonough joins a long list of all confirmed Season 10 cast associates, including Macaulay Culkin, Frances Conroy, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross, and Finn Wittrock.
Though little is known about the true plot of Season 10, we do know that — true to its title — it’s being split into two full stories: “one by the ocean, one by the sand”
In addition to playing Damien Darhk on Arrow, The Flash, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, McDonough has also held down memorable roles on Van Helsing, The 100, Modified Carbon, Suits, Yellowstone, Justified, Desperate Housewives, and Band of Brothers — to mention just a few shows.
