Denis O'Hare's transformation into Edgar Allan Poe
Almost 170 years after his death, the wild-eyed, tangle-haired image of Edgar Allen Poe still instantly evokes the genre of horror. Just in time for Halloween, we take a look at Poe — the man and the myth — with actor Denis O'Hare, who portrays Poe in re-enactments of the author's life in the new PBS documentary, Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive (premiering tonight). O'Hare is best-known for his work on Broadway and his TV roles on This is Us, American Horror Story and True Blood.
