Ryan Murphy has revealed the main cast for the upcoming ‘American Horror Story: 1984’, which serves as an homage to the classic slasher films from the 1980’s…
‘American Horror Story: 1984’ will slash its way to televisions on September 18 and while plot details remain unknown, the cast for the latest installment of the long running horror anthology has been revealed.
‘American Horror Story’ creator Ryan Murphy revealed the cast in a video posted on Thursday with several rumored names confirmed, a few new faces and the noticeable absence of some past favorites such as Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson, who will not be appearing in this new installment.
The cast includes Emma Roberts, Gus Kenworthy, and “Pose” star Angelica Ross as well as DeRon Horton, Billie Lourd, Cody Fern, Leslie Grossman, Matthew Morrison, Zach Villa and John Carroll Lynch.
Roberts, Lourd, Fern and Grossman are returning cast members from last season’s ‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’. Roberts has appeared in several seasons of the show including a memorable turn in ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ in season 3.
Lynch is an interesting addition because he previously played the murderous Twisty the Clown in ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ and it appears he will be another ominous force in this latest edition of ‘American Horror Story’, which pays homage to the classic slasher films of the 1980’s.
Roberts is expected to lead the cast as the main star, although like so many of Murphy’s past projects this is truly an ensemble group of actors and actresses.
Outside of those few details not much is known about ‘American Horror Story: 1984’ but with the series set to debut in September, it shouldn’t be long before the teaser trailers start rolling out before the show lands on FX.
