Travis Kelce follows girlfriend Taylor Swift into entertainment to take up role in new horror series Grotesquerie | Ents & Arts News

Travis Kelce is used to drama on the pitch – now he’s set to experience it on the small screen.

Following girlfriend Taylor Swift into the world of entertainment, the NFL star is to take on his first major acting role in a new series by renowned producer Ryan Murphy, the creative powerhouse behind hit shows including Nip/Tuck, Glee, American Horror Story, and Pose.

Kelce will appear alongside Niecy Nash-Betts, Courtney B Vance and British star Lesley Manville in horror drama Grotesquerie, being made by Disney’s FX and due to be released in the US in the autumn.

“Guys, guess who I am working with on Grotesquerie…” Nash-Betts has announced in a video shared on Instagram.

Kelce then appears in the frame, responding: “Jumping into new territory… with Niecy.” He has also shared the clip with his 6.4 million followers on Instagram.

“This is what happens when winners link up!!?” Nash-Betts captioned the video. “@killatrav Welcome to Grostequerie!”

Murphy has become known for casting high profile stars who are not actors in his shows, with singers Lady Gaga and Stevie Nicks, model Naomi Campbell and reality star Kim Kardashian all taking parts in American Horror Story.

Nash-Betts recently won an Emmy for another Murphy series, Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, while Kelce won a third Super Bowl with the Kansas City Chiefs earlier this year – greeted with a kiss by Swift at the end of the game.
