Not too much is known about the other characters so far. A lot of casting announcements have been made about which former cast members are returning, such as Evan Peters and Emma Roberts – as well as which ones are not, like Kathy Bates. A lot of new cast members have also been announced, including Lena Dunham , Billie Lourd , and Colton Haynes. But so far, little has been revealed about who these various actors will be playing – until today.
Several facts about the upcoming season of the anthology series were revealed today at a screening of the first three episodes. According to TVLine , one of those facts include information about the character Dunham is playing. She will portray Valerie Solanas – the woman who shot Andy Warhol.
Warhol will be played by another AHS vet – Evan Peters. Peters is playing six different cult figures in American Horror Story: Cult. Aside from Warhol, he is playing a fictional cult leader named Kai, as well as Charles Manson, Jim Jones, David Koresh, and apparently one more cult leader who show creator Ryan Murphy did not name. Warhol and Solanas will appear in an episode called ‘Valerie Solanas Died For Your Sins, Scum Bag.’
