The 44-year-old actor, best known for playing Theo Huxtable on The Cosby Show, made a surprise appearance Wednesday on American Horror Story.

His scene was brief – he showed up at the beginning of the episode, sporting a smart fedora and a big grin. But by the look and sound of things, he is likely to make a comeback. He's introduced as a possible old lover of Desiree Dupree (Angela Bassett).

If anyone can take on a powerhouse like Jessica Lange, it would have to be someone with the physical prowess of Michael Chiklis.

As a "strongman," Chiklis made his American Horror Story: Freak Show debut Wednesday night and lived up to his title in more ways than one.

Wendell "Dell" Toledo (Chiklis) arrives at the camp of the titular Freak Show along with his wife, Desiree Dupree (Angela Bassett), a hermaphrodite with three boobs. With credentials like that, Dell thinks they should be shoo-ins as the new headliners, but Elsa Mars (Lange) is strapped for cash and hesitant to hire "The World's Strongest Man." However, she is eventually persuaded by his manly strength and his promise to help lead her band of merry misfits.

"We all enjoy putting our toe in the cold water of fear," Alfred Hitchcock once said when asked about the pleasure of being frightened.

The new trailer for American Horror Story: Coven, the third season of the series, certainly invokes that delight in fright, with a group of young witches stomping in unison to a dark rendition of the folk song "The House of the Rising Sun."

Zoe, played by Taissa Farmiga, leads the march of the student witches towards the entrance of their finishing school, set in New Orleans. Sarah Paulson greets the girls at the door, and they file in to a large, dimly-lit room adorned with a white pentagram on the ceiling.
