American Horror Story‘s creator, Ryan Murphy, announced over social media that the former Home Alone child-actor, Macaulay Culkin, will star in the next season of AHS.

Murphy posted an ominous clip to his Instagram account of waves crashing in black and white with “Dead of Night” by Orville Pack playing in the background. The list of next season’s actors flashed on the screen, which included AHS newcomer Culkin.

Culkin has had a moderately active career as of late. He has appeared in the television series Dollface,The Edge and Christian Show and had a role in the 2019 film Changeland directed by Seth Green. However, this will be his biggest role in recent years.


Culkin posed for the cover of Esquire just a few weeks ago where he addresses the public’s misconceptions of his life after starring in Home Alone. “People assume that I’m crazy, or a kook, or damaged. Weird. Cracked. And up until the last year or two, I haven’t really put myself out there at all. So I can understand that. It’s also like, ok, everybody, stop acting so freaking shocked that I’m relatively well adjusted.”
