Hunky Olympic medalist/RDR guest judge/Sharknado 5: Global Swarming star Gus Kenworthy is joining the cast of Season 9 of American Horror Story.
Says series creator Ryan Murphy:
‘That special moment when you realize you have an Olympic medal AND will be playing Emma Roberts’ boyfriend on “American Horror Story” Season 9.’
Kenworthy followed that up with an Instagram post saying:
“I guess the cat’s out of the bag… I’m 👏🏼 So 👏🏼 F**king 👏🏼 Shook 👏🏼 ILYSM @mrrpmurphy 😊😍😭”
‘[Emma]Roberts entered the Horror Story universe via Coven (Season 3), then returned for Freak Show (Season 4), Cult (Season 7) and Apocalypse (Season 8). She also starred in Murphy’s short-lived Fox comedy Scream Queens, which he recently expressed interest in reviving. Kenworthy, meanwhile, made his TV acting debut in a 2016 episode of ABC’s The Real O’Neals, which he followed up with a cameo in 2017’s Sharknado 5: Global Swarming.’
Can’t wait to see their chemistry together.
