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.
