“American Horror Story” fans, get ready to see even more of Evan Peters this year. Producer Ryan Murphy just teased on Instagram about Peters’ upcoming “American Horror Story: Cult” role of Kai, “I think — and he agrees — that his upcoming Kai is his greatest ‘AHS’ role to date.” That’s quite impressive praise indeed, as Peters has played some truly great characters over the past six seasons. Are you excited for “AHS: Cult”? Vote in our poll at the bottom of this post.
Murphy’s Instagram post was accompanied by fan-made artwork (see below) showcasing all of Peters’ previous six “AHS” characters: school shooter Tate Langdon in “Murder House,” inmate Kit Walker in “Asylum,” innocent student Kyle Spencer in “Coven,” lobster boy Jimmy Darling in “Freak Show,” serial killer James Patrick March in “Hotel” and American actor Rory Monahan in “Roanoke.”
Not much is known about Peters’ “Cult” character of Kai, but early teasers suggest he may involved in an election-themed love story with Sarah Paulson‘s Ally Mayfair-Richards. Peters and Paulson are the only two performers to star in all seven installments of FX’s award-winning “American Horror Story” franchise.
