Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin will have "crazy, erotic sex" with veteran Oscar-winning actress Kathy Bates in the upcoming 10th season of American Horror Story, according to creator Ryan Murphy.
The former child actor, 39, has joined the cast of the anthology horror series for the next season, which is rumoured to have a weather or beach-based theme.
The part will be Culkin's first major role in years and Murphy revealed that it was easy to convince him to take part once he had mentioned the sex scene with Bates, 71.
"So, I have this very, very great insane part," Murphy told E! News. "And I asked to speak to him on the phone and he said OK. [When] I cast, I never let people read things, usually. I said, 'OK, here's the pitch.'
"And I told him the character and I told him he has crazy, erotic sex with Kathy Bates and does other things. And he paused and he goes, 'This sounds like the role I was born to play.' So, he signed up right then and there.
"We're waiting for the [coronavirus] crisis to be over because all those scripts are written and I'm excited for him to play that part. I'm excited for him to be in my world.
"I'm gonna want to do a lot of things with him if he wants to work, because I think he's fascinating and interesting, and I think he has a soul. There's both a lightness and a darkness with Macaulay Culkin that I'm attracted to."
Murphy has previously admitted that the 10th and 11th seasons of the show could be flipped around due to the coronavirus crisis.
