Everybody’s least favorite exhibitionist and notorious over-sharer Lena Dunham will have a role on the next season of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story. Ryan announced the unexpected casting choice yesterday via Twitter.
Thrilled that my talented friend Lena Dunham is joining the AMERICAN HORROR STORY family. Always wanted to work together, and now we r!

No news yet as to what role Lena will be playing, or even what exactly the season will be about. Variety reports:
Additional details about Dunham’s role have not yet been revealed. The title of “AHS” Season 7, which Murphy previously revealed will be inspired by the 2016 presidential election, will be announced on Thursday.
Other cast members confirmed for season 7 of AHS are series vets Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, as well as Billie (with an “IE”) Lourd and Billy (with a “Y”) Eichner. Two days ago, Ryan teased a photo from the set and encouraged fans to speculate on what it all means.
Hmm, that’s a good one, Ryan. Let’s see… bees, an election and unwanted nudity. Ok, since Lena is always putting her foot in her mouth, maybe she’s playing an unpopular politician who gets stranded on Wickerman Island and has to result to self-cannibalism, starting with her feet and working her way up her body, until all that’s left are two overly lined eyeballs that get eaten up by a vengeful Lamby. Somebody better pay me a bajillion dollars if this guess turns out to be correct.
