American Horror Story’s season 10 cast is here, and it includes Macaulay Culkin

FX’s horror hit American Horror Story returns for its 10th season this year and we now have our first look at the cast.

Showrunner Ryan Murphy revealed the cast for the upcoming series Wednesday in an Instagram post. The roster includes many franchise favorites, including Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, who did not appear in season 9 for the first time in the series’ run.

The 10th season will also welcome back stars of previous seasons, including Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Finn Wittrock, Lily Rabe, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman, and Angelica Ross. The coup de grace, however, is the announcement that Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin is joining the series.

American Horror Story will mark Culkin’s first series-regular role on television, a somewhat surprising point considering the actor’s fame. His previous television work has been in guest appearances on DollfaceRobot Chicken, and Kings.

Despite being the star of one of the most enduring family-friendly film franchises in American cinema, Culkin has been notoriously shy of the spotlight as an adult. In a recent, rare interview with Esquire, he opened up about his break from acting. “I enjoy acting. I enjoy being on set,” he said. “I don’t enjoy a lot of the other things that come around it. What’s a good analogy. The Shawshank Redemption. The way he gets out of prison is to crawl through a tube of shit, you know? It feels like to get to that kind of freedom, I’d have to crawl through a tube of shit. And you know what? I’ve built a really nice prison for myself. It’s soft. It’s sweet. It smells nice. You know? It’s plush.”

Over the course of its first nine seasons, American Horror Story has received 21 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, and four wins for actresses Jessica Lange and Bates, and actor James Cromwell. It has been FX’s highest-rated show for years, such that the network renewed the horror anthology for another three seasons in January, bringing the Murphy and Brad Falchuk series through a 13th season.

Whether Culkin will stay on through then is anyone’s guess. Season 10 — the theme of which is still unknown — is set to premiere in 2020, although a date has not been set. Previous seasons have premiered in the fall.

3 Hulu movies you need to stream this weekend (May 17-19)
Kya grabs a feather in Where the Crawdads Sing.

Perhaps the most refreshing thing about Hulu is that its new movies aren't limited to the beginning of the month. Hulu doesn't offer the sheer volume of choices that Netflix does, but there's always something new to watch on Hulu almost every week of the year. This week is no exception.

This week's picks for the three Hulu movies that you need to watch this weekend include a romance/mystery that just arrived after a long stint on Netflix, as well as a brilliant family movie and a horror story that is better viewed without children in the room.

The fringe benefits of subscribing to Amazon Prime are many, but one of the best is Amazon Prime Video, which gives you access to a whole library of great movies and TV shows. Finding something to watch on Prime Video can range from pretty easy to remarkably difficult.
