Ryan Murphy Reveals Lena Dunham's 'AHS: Cult' Character

Lena Dunham will be guest starring in an episode of the upcoming season of American Horror Story and her role has been revealed!

The 31-year-old actress will be playing Valerie Solanas, the women who tried to assassinate artist Andy Warhol.

The season will follow how various cult leaders rose to power. “We examine how these people rise to power — they’re idiots,” Ryan said during a Q&A with press on Friday (August 26), according to Deadline.

Lena‘s episode is all “about female rage and that’s in the country now. Solanas wrote the Scum Manifesto. She told all women to kill men, and it was their only way to rise to power.”

The actress will appear as Solanas in flashbacks during the seventh episode of the season, titled “Valerie Solanas Died for Your Sins: Scumbag.”

'American Crime Story: Katrina' Gets New Source Material, Sarah Paulson Will Star

We have some exciting news for American Crime Story fans!

American Crime Story: Katrina, the planned second season of Ryan Murphy‘s FX anthology series, is still happening, Deadline reports.

Just a couple weeks ago, director Anthony Hemingway let fans know that production was stalled on the new season, which was supposed to air at the beginning of 2018 followed by the third season.

Katrina will now get its source material from the book “Five Days At Memorial” by Pulitzer Prize-winner Sheri Fink.

“I’m confident it will air,” FX Networks CEO John Landgraf said. “[Ryan] Murphy has a great idea for a pivot [and] now it’s in really good shape.”

The project will focus on “the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina at Memorial Medical Center in New Orleans, and the decision by medical staff, led by Dr. Anna Pou, to euthanize critically ill patients after being trapped in the hospital for days without power.”

Sarah Paulson will star as Dr. Pou. No other cast members have been confirmed yet.

Katrina will begin production in the spring and premiere in 2019 as the third season in the ACS franchise, while The Assassination of Gianni Versace will now premiere as season two.

During the panel, Ryan shared details on why the show will be make an impact on viewers.

“We’re trying to talk about a crime within a social idea,” Ryan said. “Versace, who was [Andrew Cunanan's] last victim, did not have to die. One of the reasons he was able to make his way across the country and pick off these victims, many of whom were gay, was because of homophobia at the time.”

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story premieres in January 2018.

Ryan Murphy's 'American Crime Story: Katrina' is Currently 'Stalled'

It’s beginning to sound like we may never get to see American Crime Story: Katrina, the planned second season of the Ryan Murphy anthology series.

The season was supposed to air in the beginning of 2018 followed by the third season, focusing on the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace.

Despite several of the key roles being cast months ago with Dennis Quaid, Annette Bening, and Matthew Broderick all attached to star, the show has not yet begun production. The Versace season instead will air in the beginning of 2018 and it is expected that Katrina will air later the year.

Now, director Anthony Hemingway, who worked on the first season of the anthology series and was slated to work on Katrina, says he’s not sure what will happen.

“That just kind of got stalled,” he told THR. “We’re all standing by waiting to find out what’s happening.”

“Nothing has really been done. We haven’t started prep on it at all,” he added. When asked if there is a chance the season won’t happen he said, “Who knows. It’s all up to Ryan Murphy.”
