Sheldon, a newcomer, will appear in the third episode of "American Horror Story" when it premieres this October. According to Dread Central, Sheldon will be tackling not one role, but two - Devon and Cooper.
Devon and Cooper are reported to be around 20-years-old, tall, thin and psychopathic. We can either assume that Devon and Cooper are twins, or is actually one person suffering from multiple personality disorder.
Sheldon's casting comes on the heels of the mini-series announcing that it has had a name change. Season two will have the title, "American Horror Story: Asylum." The "Asylum" part of the title refers to the location of the new season. Previously hosting a story about a family living in a Los Angeles Murder House in modern day, season two will explore an asylum for the criminally insane in Boston in 1964.
The new season is expected to dive deep into sanity and "the real life horrors in 1964," co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed in a statement. For Murphy, the subtitle "Asylum" not only refers to the setting, but "also signifies a place of haven for the unloved and the unwanted."
Returning season one cast members Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe and Sarah Paulson are among the unloved and unwanted for season two.
Blake Sheldon will be joining a string of new names to season two, among them James Cromwell, Joseph Fiennes, Chris Zylka, Mark Consuelos, Chloe Sevigny and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine.
