Supernatural fans will have noticed Mitch Pileggi in the American Horror Story: 1984 trailer. The premiere gave us a look at his character.

Did you spot Mitch Pileggi in the American Horror Story: 1984 promo? The Supernatural actor seems to guest star in everything, right? Well, he appeared in the premiere so we didn’t have to wait too long to find out who he’s playing.

In the premiere, titled “Camp Redwood,” we quickly learned all about the history of the camp. Without too many spoilers, people were murdered at the camp and the murderer ended up being sent to a psychiatric hospital. And that’s where Mitch Pileggi comes into play.

Pileggi is a character called Art. While it wasn’t explicitly said, it looked like he runs the hospital for the criminally insane. And it seems to be on his watch that the Camp Redwood murderer, Mr. Jingles, has escaped.

We only get a quick glimpse of the Supernatural actor in his guest role. Does this mean we’ll never see him again? There are certainly times that we only get the odd quick glimpse of a character and they never show up again in American Horror Story: 1984. However, I suspect that Art will appear again at some point. After all, he’s going to have to explain how Mr. Jingles escaped.

Pileggi isn’t yet credited for any other episodes on IMDb, but that doesn’t mean he won’t show up. IMDb is updated by individuals online and isn’t an official source. It can only be updated with information known (and has been wrong in the past). FX never reveals too much about American Horror Story to keep the horrors and twists a surprise, and this is going to be one of those cases.
