Macaulay Culkin is a pop-culture icon and perhaps one of the most successful child actors of all time. Culkin’s role as Kevin McCallister in the Home Alone franchise will forever be etched in the minds of movie lovers worldwide.
Now 40, Culkin is all set to appear in the newest season of American Horror Story. Show creator Ryan Murphy took to his Instagram handle to reveal the first look at Culkin’s character from the show.
In the picture, Culkin can be seen alongside fellow cast-member Leslie Grossman at the set location for the show. Murphy posted the picture with the following as the caption:
Something wicked this way comes. American Horror Story Season Ten.
When Ryan Murphy called Culkin to tell him about his role, he did not need to go into the details of the character. Culkin was told that his character will get to be very intimate with Kathy Bates’ character and that’s all it took to get him onboard.
So, I have this very, very great insane part. And I asked to speak to him on the phone and he said OK. [When] I cast, I never let people read things, usually. I said, ‘OK, here’s the pitch.’ And I told them the character and I told him he has crazy, erotic sex with Kathy Bates and does other things. And he paused and he goes, ‘This sounds like the role I was born to play.’ So, he signed up right then and there.
Culkin joins the likes of Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters, Finn Wittrock and Angelica Ross in the 10th season of American Horror Story.
