American Horror Story is gearing up for production of season 10 (yes, 10), and showrunner Ryan Murphy has a few surprises up his sleeve. In a moody beach video featuring "Dead of Night" by Orville Peck, Murphy released his cast list for the upcoming season on Instagram, including Macaulay Culkin, in what would be his first major acting role in years.

While there aren't a lot of hints to the plot of the next season of the FX mainstay, there is enough in the brief teaser to get fans excited.

Some Fan Favorites Are Also Returning To The Fold

After the Culkin reveal, the biggest news is that American Horror Story regulars Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, and Evan Peters would all be returning for season 10. They all sat out the last season to work on other projects, so it's great to see them return to the fold.

The rest of the cast features a ton of usual suspects, including Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross, and Finn Wittrock. Murphy is nothing if not loyal to his favorites, so it's exciting to ponder what everyone will get to sink their teeth into in season 10.

Culkin On Acting

Culkin might be on the verge of a bit of a career resurgence after happily living outside of the spotlight for years. In a rare interview with Esquire, Culkin explained that his girlfriend, actress Brenda Song, has been encouraging him to get back out there, and Culkin admitted that there were certain things about acting that he did miss.

"No, it’s true. It’s just—I enjoy acting. I enjoy being on set. 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."

Does This Mean A Culkinaissance?

Culkin admitted in the interview that he auditioned for Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood and completely bombed.

"It was a disaster. I wouldn’t have hired me. I’m terrible at auditioning anyway, and this was my first audition in like eight years."

His audition for Ryan Murphy must have gone better. Are we on the verge of seeing more of Macaulay Culkin on our screens? We'll just have to wait and see.
