Ryan Murphy was on Watch What Happens Live last night and he spilled some info on two of the 300,000 shows he’s currently working on. Ryan confirmed that season 4 of American Crime Story will focus on the Monica Lewinsky/Bill Clinton sex scandal and adds that he’s talking to Sarah Paulson about possibly playing the role that will forever belong to John Goodman: the role of Linda Tripp. Ryan doesn’t think that the Clintons will be major characters in it and wants to cast an unknown as Monica Lewinsky. That high-pitched hyena sound that is fucking your eardrums hard is Lea Michele screaming while cutting up the beret she bought to play Monica.
Season 2 of ACS is about Katrina and will start shooting this summer. Season 3 of ACS is about the Gianni Versace murder and it starts shooting in the spring, but will air after Katrina. Ryan dropped a shock bomb (wrapped in a thick, puffy layer of sarcasm) last night by announcing that Darren Criss will play Andrew Cunanan. Hot Venezuelan piece Edgar Ramirez will play Versace. Ryan says that they’re talking to an Oscar-winner about playing Donatella. I’m going to guess either Charlize Theron, or Daniel Day-Lewis, who can really do it all.
As for the 7th season of American Horror Story… Ryan and company will grab their viewers by the ankles and drag ’em back to the chunky shit hellscape that was the 2016 presidential election. Although, compared to what’s happening now, I look at those innocent, sweet days fondly.
Andy Cohen asked Ryan about the next season of AHS and his response was triggering.
Ryan: Well, I don’t have a title, but the season that we begin shooting in June will be about the election we just went through. So I think that will be interesting for a lot of people.
Andy: Wow. Will there be a Trump in it?
All of those “American Horror Story: 2016 Election” jokes aren’t so funny anymore. This is what happens when you joke about some shit constantly. It comes true, which is why I need to joke more about In-N-Out opening a location next door to me. Ryan and co. don’t even need to bother with “shooting” it. They could just show clips from Fox News and CSPAN.
AHS always has to have some kind of fucked-up sex scene in it, so when I think of what AHS: Election will bring, I think of Trump in a gimp suit and Putin holding his leash and some jumbo anal beads. Ryan Murphy better not.
And if Ryan really wants to show the look of intense horror and raw terror, he’d shoot a close-up shot of Susan Sarandon’s face as he asks her to play Hillary Clinton.
