Billy Eichner Joins ‘American Horror Story’ Season 7 in Mystery Role
American Horror Story has its usual air of mystery intact for Season 7, but if any addition will make you scratch your head, it’s Billy Eichner’s. The Billy on the Street host and comedian will join Season 7 in a role close to Sarah Paulson’s character, and with an oddly specific choice of attire at that.
Per Deadline, Eichner is reported to appear in six (or seven) of the season’s eleven episodes, playing “a close confidant of Paulson’s character,” who – and I assure you, this is genuine – “mostly will be wearing mysterious tank tops.”
Mysterious. Tank. Tops. There is no amount of elaborate teasers that will hold my attention so rapturously as that sequence of words.
Elsewhere of the Election 2016-themed season, only series staples Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters have confirmed their returns after this past year’s Roanoke. Season 7 might also feature the return of several characters from American Horror Story: Freak Show, while a separate upcoming season was said to bring together Murder House and Coven characters.
Season 7 will begin shooting in May, but what other first-time Horror stars (and their mysterious tank tops) should we expect running for office in the Election-themed story?
