Back in 2010, Evan appeared in an episode of The Office, as Michael’s lazy nephew Luke. HD captures from the episode have been added to the gallery – enjoy!
Last night’s American Horror Story was full of what we’ve come to expect from the show: a butt shot or two, lots of blood, creepy babies and everybody dying. (Everyone that is, except Constance. How is that crazy b*tch still alive?!) We’re not even sure if we like the show or not. It’s kind of like egg nog — so delicious that it’s kind of gross but we can’t.stop.drinking.it. And while AHS is beyond wacky and sends us into eye roll spasms at times, the acting is what keeps us coming back: Connie Britton, Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Dylan McDermott, Mena Suvari, Kate Mara, Burn-face Dude (the amazing Denis O’Hare), and the two Moiras (Frances Conroy and Alexandra Breckenridge) all rock the sh*t out of some of the weirdest characters ever created. But our two favorites out of this amazing crop of talent are Evan Peters and Taissa Farmiga, who play troubled ghost-human (and then ghost-ghost) teen lovers Tate and Violet.
Let’s start with Evan. He somehow has made us empathize with a psychopathic killer, who not only murdered fifteen fellow students but torched his mom’s boyfriend and raped his girlfriend’s mom. His performance is nuanced and delicate, and he’s taken the world’s worst human and made him loveable. Even as he was about to murder that innocent skateboarding kid in last night’s finale, we still felt for him. “Oh man, he just loves Violet so much!” we muttered to our cat through a mouthful of popcorn. We are making excuses for a killer – that’s how good of an actor Evan Peters is.
It takes a very special actor to make a psychopathic killer a character people actually root for. And Evan Peters happens to be that special.
Of course, he isn’t even aware of how much fans adore American Horror Story‘s Tate, but we made sure to tell him many times while we talked with him. Peters is one of our Breakout TV Stars of 2011, and he just so happens to be modest, smart and, surprisingly enough, not a fan of latex…
We’ve chosen you as one of our breakout stars because fans really love your character on American Horror Story. Are you aware of all the buzz surrounding you?
Evan Peters: No, that’s awesome! That’s great. I didn’t know that. That’s cool.
Did you think that your character would ever get this kind of reaction?
Um, no. [Laughs.] I had no idea. I didn’t even know that it was going to be this cool to act [the part]. I’m having such a good time with it because they kept writing this amazing stuff for Tate to do, and it’s just an actor’s dream to be able to play this kind of stuff. So I’m pretty grateful and psyched that it turned out the way that it did.
News about American Horror Story‘s second season has just been announced, but for those who haven’t seen the season 1 finale yet, I have placed the article under a cut so you won’t be spoiled.

He’s American Horror Story’s school shooter, rapist, demon daddy, and homophobic killer who should never be allowed near a fire poker again. And, yet, depending on who you ask, Tate Langdon (played by Evan Peters) is also the show’s heartthrob: He’s misunderstood. He’s protective. He wants to spend all of eternity with Violet. (Never mind that he’s insane!) We spoke with Peters ahead of tonight’s season finale about whether his fangirls are right in the head, auditioning for The Hunger Games, and lube.
Violet said at the end of last episode that Tate is all darkness. Is that how you see your character?
No. I mean, I think he wants to be good. I just think that he messes everything up. He goes about it the wrong way; he goes about it in a dark way, I guess.
Yes, killing and rape are dark! Are you surprised that you have so many fangirls, considering? There’s a Tatesfangirl Tumblr.
I literally didn’t know what Tumblr was [until] I did a photo shoot with Tyler Shields, and he texted me, and he’s like, “Dude, all the girls love you.” I was like, “What are you talking about?” And he said there were all these Tumblr views or something. And I didn’t want to text back, like, “What’s Tumblr?” So I just Googled it.
I’ve added HD logoless captures of episodes 1-5, 7 and 8 to the gallery, more coming soon so please stay tuned as we work on everything!
