Clea Duvall (Identity, The Faculty, The Grudge) is headed to Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s American Horror Story asylum.

THR reports that the actress, who starred on the short-lived HBO drama “Carnivale,” has booked a multiple-episode role on the rebooted second season of “American Horror Story.”
