Matt Bomer Teases Giant AHS Twist: “Fans Won’t Be Disappointed”


Last week while Matt attended the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, Vanity Fair asked Matt the one million dollar question: Who he will play in this AHS season?

Ever since American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy revealed that there is a shocking twist coming in this season’s sixth episode—airing this Wednesday, October 19—fans have been clamoring to learn what the big reveal might be. There is, however, another question torturing them as well: Who will fan favorite Matt Bomer play this year? This June, Bomer confirmed he would appear in the latest installment of the anthology series—but not much is known about his role. Could Bomer be a part of the coming twist that will change everything?

“This is one of those moments where mum is the word. Well, I’ll tell you this—this is one of my favorite seasons I’ve seen in a long time. I’m really proud of what the writers have done. They have completely reinvigorated the show and I think fans will love what they have done.”

Although the Golden Globe–winning actor remained silent about what kind of impact his character will make on the Roanoke house’s history or when he’ll appear, Bomer says this season’s true-crime documentary-like premise and story-within-a-story style plot is a welcomed contrast to its previous cycles.

“I have seen every episode so far. I love it. It’s been one of my favorite seasons since Season 2, cause they went back to this real-time, right-now period. It’s an immediate horror. It’s the kind of horror that I like to see. They really started from scratch in a way.”

Fans have speculated in detail about plot points surrounding the show. One popular theory is that Shelby (Lily Rabe), Matt (André Holland), and Lee (Adina Porter) are all ghosts. Viewers are hungry to unearth the surprise twist, and Bomer is delighted to hear about rabid fans’ theories.

“Oh cool! Love that! You need to send me some. I’d like to read those. I hope that Roanoke lives up to everyone’s dreams and fan theories. People can always trust Ryan Murphy to deliver stories that are fun, surprising, and intelligent. Fans won’t be disappointed.”
