We’re not even halfway through the first month of the new year
and Finn Wittrock has already taken over 2016.
The 31-year-old actor -- the Emmy-nominated breakout star of
American Horror Story: Freak Show -- reunited
with Ryan Murphy for another head-turning performance as a model-turned-vampire
in American Horror Story: Hotel. The season, which draws to
a close tonight, saw the actor stripping down and getting close with his co-stars,
Lady Gaga, Cheyenne Jackson, and Denis O’Hare, for the anthology series’
sexiest installment yet.

Elsewhere, Wittrock has seen his star power rise thanks to
the On Demand release of The Submarine
Kid, “a labor of love” he co-wrote and starred in, and his role opposite
Brad Pitt in the financial crisis dramedy, The
Big Short, which has earned tons of attention this awards season.
Not one to rest (“I had a two-week winter break, so that was
enough for me,” he says), the actor is gearing up for another busy year with a
new musical comedy, La La Land, with
Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, and possibly
another season of American Horror Story.
Wittrock talked to ETonline about writing his own film,
ad-libbing with Brad Pitt and his chemistry with his male co-stars.
