This is a big week for actor-comedian Billy Eichner. First, Hulu announced the third season premiere of his scripted comedy series, Difficult People. Today, we’ve learned Eichner has been cast in the upcoming seventh season of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story TV show on FX, starring Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.
As per usual, almost nothing is known about the Billy on the Street host’s character in the FX anthology drama series. Still, Deadline reports that sources say, “He is playing a close confidant of Paulson’s character and will mostly be wearing mysterious tank tops.” Expect Eichner to recur in about a half dozen of American Horror Story‘s season seven episodes.
Back in February, Murphy revealed the seventh season would tackle the 2016 presidential election. In that interview, the creator said they would begin shooting American Horror Story season seven in June. Per today’s report, production should kickoff in May.
