'American Horror Stories' Full Cast List: Meet Kevin McHale and other stars of AHS spin-off series
'American Horror Story' star Sarah Paulson will be directing some episodes of the series
Fear takes on a whole new form in the twisted new anthology series 'American Horror Stories' a spin-off of the hugely popular 'American Horror Story'. The format and the faces in 'American Horror Stories' may be different with 16 self-contained episodes, but there will be some important constants like show creator Ryan Murphy and 'American Horror Story' star Sarah Paulson who has confirmed that she has directed some of the episodes. While we're still not sure if we will see Paulson even if just for a guest appearance in the new series, who we will see for sure, are four young actors that Ryan Murphy has dubbed the 'fantastic four' of the series. Glee Star, Kevin McHale, 'Riverdale' actor Charles Melton, Dyllón Burnside from 'Pose', and Nico Greetham from 'The Prom' will star in 'American Horror Stories'. The details aren't forthcoming as yet on what characters they will play or what episodes they will feature in, but fans we're sure can't wait to find out.
Besides hoping to see Sarah Paulson in front of the camera, fans are hoping that they see other long-time collaborators with Murphy such as Jessica Lange in the new series in a cameo. But we will have to wait till July 15 to find out.
Kevin McHale is perhaps most memorable for his role as the lovable Artie on the hit musical show 'Glee', which was also created by Ryan Murphy. McHale is an actor, singer, dancer and radio presenter. Prior to his acting career, McHale was part of the American boy band NLT, which stands for 'Not Like Them'. The band also made a guest appearance in the film 'Bratz: The Movie' as an auditioning band. While in the group, McHale, along with Timbaland and his bandmates, co-wrote the song 'She Said, I Said (Time We Let Go)'. McHale writes original music in his spare time and planned to focus more on his music career post 'Glee'. Besides music, after his success on 'Glee', McHale has gone onto host the British panel show 'Virtually Famous' and is one of the four hosts on 'Sick Of My Own Voice'.
Charles Melton is an actor best known for his role as Reggie Mantle on 'Riverdale' and his film roles in movies such as 'Bad Boys For Life' starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence and the film 'The Sun Is also a Star', which is the story of a young couple who falls in love while one of their families faces deportation.
Dyllon Burnside is perhaps best known for his role on 'Pose', the drama series about New York City's African-American and Latino LGBTQ drag ball culture scene in the 1980s, early 1990s and the mid-to-late 1990s. 'Pose' is also created by Ryan Murphy and Dyllon Burnside plays dancer Ricky Evangelista on the show. Burnside is also known for his performances in the TV series 'High Maintenance' which focuses on a cannabis delivery man who delivers his much-needed medication to stressed-out New Yorkers. Burnside was also part of the film 'Peter Pan Live!' which starred Allison Williams.
The half Colombian half Scottish Greetham got his big break on Broadway in Disney's 'Newsies' and then went on being a part of films such as 'Dramarama' and the character drama 'Dinner in America' which premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. He can also be seen in Hulu's 'Into The Dark'. However, his breakout role was in Netflix's 'The Prom' opposite Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman and James Corden.
