5 Theories For How American Horror Story Will Tackle the Election

16 February 2017 4:35 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

On Thursday, Ryan Murphy revealed the theme of the seventh season of American Horror Story. In a move completely out of left field, Murphy is going to bend the events of the new season around the 2016 election. In spite of the fact that we had our own theories and were keen on collecting sparse details as they trickled out, we did not see this coming. After all, none of the previous seasons have been particularly timely or topical, and they veered pretty hard into classic horror movie scenarios. Now that we know how close to reality this installment will hew, though, we can still do a little brainstorming. Let's figure out how the season might take shape. 1. A Hyperbolized Version of the Events In this version, we'd get a pretty cut-and-dried iteration of the 2016 election. That means Murphy would cast the fictional character versions of all the major players, including the Trump family, »

The moment came and went pretty fast, but Ryan Murphy mentioned a dream casting to Andy Cohen on Bravo last night that’s just too good to let slip by: Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp, Monica Lewinsky’s blabbermouth friend who leaked some presidential gossip even the Russians would envy. On last night’s Watch What Happens Live, the American Crime Story producer was asked by a caller about his option on A Vast Conspiracy, Jeffrey Toobin’s 1999 bestseller about the Clinton sex… »

While we're still waiting to see season two of American Crime Story, Ryan Murphy is busy at work casting the third season.

American Horror Story’s Season 7 Theme Revealed — And It Hits Too Close To Home

16 February 2017 1:53 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

American Horror Story is a very uniquely awesome series. It has the benefit of being both a serialized and anthological story all at the same time. Each season is one long, self-contained story, and as such, you can pretty much go into each season cold and enjoy it on its own merits. Perhaps the biggest plus to this whole thing, however, is the fact that each season uses a unique theme — usually a twist or exploitation of a common horror trope.

Last season was an especially unique in that the theme wasn’t revealed to be Roanoke until it aired its first episode. Given the secrecy surrounding that season, we half expected that this season would very much play out the same, with the theme being held out until the very last possible second. After all, the show wouldn’t even be returning until this fall season, so there would »

Our Dream Cast For American Horror Story Season 7: The 2016 Election

16 February 2017 11:55 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Ryan Murphy has unveiled the theme for American Horror Story season 7, and we're 90 percent sure he's serious. The creator announced that the upcoming season will tell the story of the 2016 election (which feels more like an American Crime Story theme, but what do we know) and that it's likely a Donald Trump character will appear. We know that Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters have already been cast and while we're not sure where Peters fits in, we have a great suggestion for Paulson. In fact, we've gone ahead and cast Murphy's frequent collaborators as eight major figures from the election. Fingers crossed that all of this comes true.

Ryan Murphy Reveals Least Favorite ‘Glee’ Performance, ‘American Horror Story’ Season

16 February 2017 11:10 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With so many shows under his belt, Ryan Murphy is bound to have a miss or two.

The prolific producer appeared on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” Wednesday night to promote his new FX show “Feud.”

When asked by a caller which of the hundreds of “Glee” musical numbers he regretted the most, Murphy replied, “I’m mortified that we did ‘Gangsta Style’ by Psy. I will say, like, not our finest moment.”

Fellow “Wwhl” guest Taran Killam corrected Murphy, saying that name of the Korean rapper’s hit was “Gangnam Style.”

Murphy laughed, “I can’t believe I got that wrong.”

The “Glee” cast performed “Gangnam Style” in Season 4, with South Korean-born Jenna Ushkowitz taking the lead on the vocals. Watch the performance below:

At the time, the dance song was a global sensation. (It’s netted 2.7 billion YouTube views since it was uploaded four years ago).
