According to a report by the International Business Times, FX's American Horror Story: Coven might be looking to cast J. August Richards as 'Hank", the husband of one of season 3's witches.

The rumor has surfaced following a series of cryptic Tweets between previously cast Sarah Paulson and Richards about how they "can't wait to work" with each other again. The pair last collaborated in an episode of Grey's Anatomy in 2010.

It was also recently announced that Emma Roberts had joined the American Horror Story: Coven cast, playing 'Madison', a "self-involved party girl." Though details on COVEN are being kept quiet, Ryan Murphy confirmed in March that the season would be set in multiple locales, including New Orleans.

COVEN will bring back Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, and Lily Rabe, as BWW TV previously reported. Broadway vet Patti LuPone will also appear, alongside other newcomers Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, and Gabourey Sidibe.

Richards will next appear in Joss Whedon's TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Richards' other TV credits include appearances on Arrow, Emily Owens M.D., Warehouse 13, The Mentalist, The Defenders, Grey's Anatomy, The 440, CSI: Miami, Any Day Now, Undressed, Moesha, The West Wing, The Practice and more, with regular roles on the series Raising the Bar, Conviction and Angel.

As of now, a premiere date for AHS: COVEN has not been set by FX - but BWW TV will keep you updated as the latest outing of Murphy's frightfest shapes up.
