Gus Kenworthy is joining Season 9 of the FX horror anthology. Ryan Murphy broke the news via Instagram. The 53-year-old producer revealed the Olympian will play the boyfriend of Emma Roberts.
Kenworthy and Roberts are the first two cast members officially announced for the upcoming season. It’s safe to assume Sarah Paulson will join in some capacity as well. She’s Murphy’s muse after all. Evan Peters, Cheyenne Jackson and Billy Eichner seem like safe bets to return also.
Other than this announcement, not much is known about Season 9. As usual, Murphy is remaining tight-lipped about the theme and plot.
Thoughts on Kenworthy joining the AHS family? Here’s hoping to plenty of shirtless scenes of the 27-year-old athlete. That furry tight body of his should never be covered up 😉
