James Cromwell’s son, John Cromwell, played the young Dr. Arden in the last episode of “American Horror Story.”  How cool is that?  When thinking about who to cast, Cromwell said, “Well you have to fucking cast my son — he looks just like me.”  When creator Ryan Murphy saw the young Cromwell, he cast him on the spot. “You can’t beat the synchronicity and luck of that. James’ son [John Cromwell] looks exactly like him at that age. It was perfect.”
