First Look at Evan Peters as Charles Manson in “American Horror Story: Cult”

In addition to playing small town cult leader Kai Anderson on “American Horror Story: Cult, series mainstay Evan Peters is also spending some time this season inside the skin of several real life figures from the past. Just last week, Peters played artist Andy Warhol, and he’s set to play Charles Manson in the near future.

Peters will play Manson in the episode “Charles (Manson) in Charge,” airing November 7 on FX. We don’t yet have any plot details for the episode, but we can only assume that the Manson family storyline will be woven into the main storyline of “Cult,” much the same way Andy Warhol and Valerie Solanas were this past week.

Kai is essentially a modern day Manson, so the connection makes perfect sense.

“American Horror Story: Cult” airs Tuesday nights on FX.

    I think Evan has done a phenomenal job in this show, especially this season so far. My favorite so far by him personally is his character from ‘Hotel’. But this season as ‘Kai’ is starting to de-throne that.

    • MODOK

      Yeah, Peters has been phenomenal this season. Not only is he convincing as a charismatic cult leader, but he made a great Andy Warhol, too.

    • Silhouetters

      He’s the only good thing about the show.

    • Biscoito18

      James March is still my favorite too.

      • Necro

        Yeah he was excellent as ‘March’! The accent, his delivery, everything basically.

    • He was AWESOME in Hotel. Absolutely loved his performance. He and Denis O’Hare saved that season for me

  • Missy Slaughter

    He’s a great actor and totally hot.

  • He’s the only reason to watch this season.

  • Demetra

    Evan Peters is a terrible actor.

    • WishKiller

      I have No Idea what the crack you’re smoking is laced with But he’s a Great actor.

    • It’s a flawed show but Evan Peters is one of the few things in it that are decent. He can adapt to lots of different roles pretty well which helps when the plot keeps skipping through different time periods

    • Travis_Bickle

      ^ Hasn’t seen the show ^

  • zombie84_41

    looks good. evan peters in the last few years been showin how amazin of an actor he is. this show really open up his acting roles and sent him into being a fantastic actor

  • umaneo

    His Warhol was good. This season is all over the place. I wasn’t going to watch this time, Lena Dunham proved to be as revolting on the show as she is in interviews.

    • I did find it hard to watch her without wanting to destroy my TV

  • I Am Colossus

    My interest in this show has finally been peaked

  • Kristoffer Groves

    I checked out after the first two episodes.

    • Maxime C

      Well it’s too bad cause it’s good. Way better than the last three seasons.

      • Yep. It started pretty weak with the “gaslight” shenanigans but has gotten so good now that it’s actually dealing with the cult.

    • bastardjackyll

      I made through 5, which is the longest I’ve been able to make it through this s*** since Freak Show

  • Eric

    Evan Peters transformations look awesome for AHS.
    Unfortunately 2 episodes in was as far as I made it…

  • Travis_Bickle

    I gave up on this season. I love Evan but I have far to much Trump in my life as it is. I will pick up next season where it hopefully doesn’t focus on current events.

    • AdamX

      Peters has been killing it since Hotel, once they let him stop playing angsty teenagers his skill set really opened up.

  • I can’t get enough with this show I’m one of the few that loved every season.
