Billy Eichner often shocks people on New York avenues with his Billy on the Street series but now he’s about to get scared out of his wits. EW has confirmed that the actor will be joining season 7 of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s American Horror Story.

Eichner’s character will reportedly have a close relationship with whomever Sarah Paulson is playing on the next season of the hit series.

Little is known about season 7 of the anthology show other than it takes place after the election. Eichner is an interesting and, in some ways, a fitting choice for the plotline as he has been very vocal on social media about dislike for the Donald Trump administration.

Shooting on the FX series begins this summer.
