TVLine confirms that Billy on the Street star Billy Eichner will play a character on the upcoming season of American Horror Story. The storyline arc will be about the 2016 presidential election (TOO SOON! TOO SOON!) – but will NOT feature any Trump or Clinton characters.
In February, AHS producer Ryan Murphy told Watch What Happens Live‘s Andy Cohen that President Donald Trump would “maybe” be a character in the new season, but he soon walked it back, commenting, “The themes of American Horror Story have always been allegories” and “You will not see Trump and [Hillary] Clinton as characters on the show.”
Not much else is known about the season, or how Eichner will fit in, although Deadline is reporting that he’ll be in about six or seven of the 11 episodes, he’ll have scenes opposite Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, and he “will mostly be wearing mysterious tank tops.”
I’m already terrified.
