In Hotel, he portrayed model Tristan Duffy and a fictionalized version of Hollywood's divo Rudolph Valentino, both afflicted individuals closely tied to Lady Gaga's Elizabeth. Alongside Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, and Wes Bentley, Wittrock portrays one of the light-eyed dark-haired men who gravitates around the Hotel Cortez.

In Roanoke, Wittrock portrayed the reluctant cannibal Jether Polk in the re-enacted section of the season in a guest-starring capacity.

In 1984, Wittrock was again a guest star as he portrayed Bobby Richter II in the season finale. In February 20201, Ryan Murphy confirmed his return for the tenth installment. Wittrock portrayed struggling scriptwriter Harry Gardner, searching for his "muse" in the first part, "Red Tide".
