Jenna Dewan may have "Magic Mike" at home, but now it's her turn to hit the spotlight: The actress and dancer is headed to "American Horror Story."

The delirious, hyper-sexy and legit terrifying FX anthology has been casting up for weeks in support of Season 2, which will take place in a haunted mental asylum. 

Dewan will play one-half of an integral couple called "The Lovers," according to EW, which will place her in the sculpted, tattooed arms of singer Adam Levine. This means the missus will give hubby Channing Tatum a taste of his own steamy on-screen medicine come fall.

Not to mention the cred she'll get from such a highbrow gig: Despite its guilty-pleasure status, "Horror Story" was showered with 17 Emmy nominations, tying AMC's "Mad Men" for most-nominated show.

Dewan and Levine join newbies Joseph Fiennes and Chloe Sevigny, and returning cast members Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Zachary Quinto and Evan Peters. 

"Horror Story" comes courtesy of "Glee" creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.
