Travis Kelce has another TV job lined up, joining FX’s ‘American Horror Story: Grotesquerie’ season

While his superstar girlfriend Taylor Swift resumes her Eras world tour, Travis Kelce is keeping busy.

The NFL player has joined the cast of “American Horror Story: Grotesquerie.”

On Tuesday night, cast member Niecy Nash posted a series of videos to Instagram showing her on set with Kelce.

“Guys, guess who I’m working with on ‘Grotesquerie’?” Kelce appears on screen and says, “Jump into new territory with Niecy.” A later video in which she wrote “late night shenanigans” showed the two in what appeared to be a red convertible. “Look at this man,” she says. “Strap in!” Kelce added.

And a final video showed show creator Ryan Murphy hugging Kelce and saying, “You were amazing.” Off camera, Nash asks, “How are you feeling?” Kelce responded, “Wow! I’m just glad I didn’t hurt anyone.”

It’s been an offseason of new jobs for the three-time Super Bowl-winning tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs. He also included a stint as host of “Are You Smarter than a Celebrity?” for PrimeVideo.

Kelce hosted an episode of “Saturday Night Live” last year.

Murphy has a history of interesting casting choices for his TV shows. In 2015, he cast Lady Gaga for a role in “American Horror Story: Hotel.” She went on to win a Golden Globe for her performance. Last year he also chose Kim Kardashian for a role in ‘American Horror Story: Delicate’ opposite Emma Roberts. Kardashian received positive reviews for her performance and now has other acting TV projects in the works.
