Gleeks beware: it’s Mr. Schue! “Glee” actor Matthew Morrison was cast as Trevor Kirchner in “American Horror Story: 1984,” a choice that surprised some fans on Reddit. Redditor u/RuleTop5909 pointed out that his appearance was “random,” though they did like his character. Many agreed, laughing at the comedic highs that came with a character defined by his perfect mustache, his arrogant energy, and his affinity for jazzercise.
Others suggested that after the initial shock of Morrison’s casting wore off, they realized how on-brand it was for Murphy to cast someone he’s collaborated with on other projects. The RMCU is extensive and features hundreds of talented people. Plus, this isn’t the only time a “Glee” alumni appeared on “American Horror Story.”
Neil Patrick Harris, Jacob Artist, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, and Darren Criss all had roles on “AHS,” while “Glee” leading actress Lea Michele starred in both seasons of Murphy’s other horror series, “Scream Queens.” While this was Morrison’s first appearance on “American Horror Story,” it likely won’t be his last if Ryan Murphy has anything to do with it.
