Lights, camera, action. Macaulay Culkin, 39, is one of the many actors who will be part of AHS‘ milestone 10th season. The first teaser, which creator Ryan Murphy unveiled on his Instagram on Wednesday, February 26, showed waves crashing on the beach as the cast is revealed to Orville Peck’s “Dead of Night.” The star-studded lineup includes Macaulay along with Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross, and Finn Wittrock.
