Lea Michele (Rachel) isn’t shy about her love of American Horror Story — far from it. In fact. Just last month the Glee star was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and she could hardly contain her love for Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy’s spooky scary FX series. Come to think of it, Lea seemed to say that an AHS gig would take precedent over that rumored Glee spin-off! Aca-scuse us?!
“[I would star in a Glee spin-off], unless he [Ryan] wants to put me on American Horror Story," Lea told Ellen. "I know what the theme is for next year, and I'm in. So, if he'll have me... at least, maybe for one episode. Let's start that campaign.”
By now we too know the theme for AHS’s next season — Freak Show — but as intrigued as we are to see Lea flex her more serious acting muscle, we’d hate to think that she’d pick the campy drama over Glee.
However, despite Lea’s urging to “start that campaign”, Ryan isn’t exactly ready to let the FOX series’ leading lady leave Broadway and wherever Season 6 will take her for the far creepier world of AHS.
During a live Twitter Q&A a little over two weeks ago, a fan told Ryan that putting Lea on American Horror Story sounds like a good idea, but Ryan revealed that he needs something from the 27-year-old starlet first!
“She needs to give me more gifts,” he told the fan.
So, Lea, what are you waiting for? It’s time to hit Barneys and stock up on black tees and newsboy caps to send to Ryan!
