Kim Kardashian may soon add “scream queen” to her Hollywood resume.
The reality star and fashion icon revealed Monday that she is joining the cast of “American Horror Story” for its 12th season.
He made the announcement with a short video shared on his social media platforms featuring a freaky version of “Rock-a-Bye Baby.”
The upcoming season of the anthology series is titled “Delicate” and is adapted by screenwriter Halley Feiffer from “Delicate Condition,” a new thriller novel by Danielle Valentine.
While details are scarce, Kardashian will appear alongside “AHS” veteran Emma Roberts in a role written specifically for her.
Describing Kardashian as “among the biggest and brightest TV stars in the world,” series co-creator Ryan Murphy said he was “thrilled to welcome her to the ‘AHS’ family.”
“Emma and I are thrilled to collaborate with this true force in culture,” Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. “Halley Feiffer has written a funny, stylish and ultimately terrifying role, especially for Kim, and this season is ambitious and unlike anything we’ve ever done.”
From the sounds of it, “American Horror Story” will mark Kardashian’s meatiest acting role to date. Still, he’s not exactly a stage novel: In 2018, he made a very animated cameo in “Ocean’s Eight,” starring Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett, and in 2021, he voiced the character of Delores the poodle in “PAW Patrol: The Movie.”
“American Horror Story” has helped launch a number of high-profile acting careers, including that of Lady Gaga, who appeared on the series three years before her Oscar-nominated performance in “A Star Is Born”, and former Olympic freeskier Gus. Kenworthy.
In August, “Delicate Condition” was described as a feminist update of the 1967 horror classic “Rosemary’s Baby.” The book follows a woman who believes a sinister figure is doing everything he can to make sure her pregnancy never happens, even though the men in her life refuse to believe a word he says.
