Oliver Hudson is the latest addition to the Scream Queens cast, taking the place of Joe Manganiello, and the actor is wasting no time dropping hints about Ryan Murphy’s new project.
During a recent chat with The Hollywood Reporter, Hudson gave some insight into his character in the horror comedy series. “I love the fact that I was a father because I’ve never played a dad and I have three kids,” said Hudson. “Now I get to do something a little softer and… more relatable for me. But at the same time, this guy has a real edge and he has got a lot of secrets. There is an intensity about him that will ultimately come out and there’s a mystery around this person.”
The highly anticipated show has been taking cues another of Murphy’s projects, American Horror Story, with details of the plot being kept a secret and characters remaining a mystery. “There’s a mystery around all of these characters,” says Hudson. “You don’t know who’s who, who’s real, who’s not, who’s being honest and who has motive and it’s really exciting. It’s like Clue.”
The star studded cast for the new FOX series includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Skyler Samuels, Ariana Grande, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer and Nick Jonas.
FOX hasn’t set a premiere date for Scream Queens yet, but you can bet when it does, we’ll let you know.
