Well that’s shockingly good.

American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy unveiled the first image of AHS: Cult star Evan Peters as Andy Warhol. Peters will play Warhol and many other cult leaders later this season on the FX series.

Evan Peters or Andy Warhol?

Peters told EW this week that inhabiting Warhol was both fun and a challenge. “Ryan told me I was playing Andy Warhol and so I immediately started doing research on him and just fell in love with him,” says Peters. “I thought he was amazing and the ’60s and The Factory and that whole world to live in is so fun. So it was great to learn about him but challenging to get his mannerisms and his speech and his state of mind. I would just listen to him constantly.”

Lena Dunham will also appear in a future episode as Valerie Solanas, the woman who attempted to kill Warhol.

American Horror Story: Cult airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
