Ryan Murphy is known for making out-of-the-box casting choices on FX’s American Horror Story. The latest is actor-comedian Billy Eichner, best known for his popular man-on-the street series Billy on the Street.
Eichner is joining American Horror Story‘s upcoming seventh season in a heavily recurring role opposite returning AHS franchise stars Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.
As usual, details about Eichner’s character are being kept under wraps, but sources say he is playing a close confidant of Paulson’s character and mostly will be wearing mysterious tank tops. I hear Eichner will be in six or seven of the 11 episodes in Season 7, which begins shooting in May.
