Ratched's Sarah Paulson lifts lid on Macaulay Culkin's 'thrilling' role on American Horror Story season 10

RATCHED'S Sarah Paulson has lifted the lid on Macaulay Culkin's 'thrilling' role on American Horror Story season 10.

It was revealed earlier this year the 40-year-old Home Alone star would play an unspecified role in the next installment of Ryan Murphy's hit anthology series.

While character details are being kept under wraps, regular AHS collaborator Sarah has revealed it will be as far removed from cute Kevin McCallister as it can get.

Sarah – who plays the titular character in Ryan's latest Netflix project, Ratched – said of his casting: "I think it's so brilliant of Ryan to do something like that.

"It's that thing where he basically says, 'Oh, you think you know this actor and you know what they're capable of? I'm gonna show you something else.'"

She continued to Collider: "A great big swath of the people that love Macaulay Culkin love him from a particular era when he was a child.



"To watch him do some of the very grown-up things he's gonna be doing – because I've read the first two episodes – and turning all of your expectations on its head will be thrilling for the audience and good fun."

Sarah has appeared in eight out of the nine series of American Horror Story so far, and is returning to the show for the tenth season.

She added: "I do get to work with him, so I feel really excited about that."

Back in May, creator Ryan revealed he had warned Macaulay he would have to get racy with his Oscar-winning co-star Kathy Bates, who is 71, when he was casting him.

But Ryan said the actor didn’t flinch – and is actually relishing the scenes with Kathy, who has played a host of characters throughout the series.

Teasing Macaulay's “very, very great,insane part”, Ryan told E News: [When] I cast, I never let people read things, usually. I said, ‘OK, here’s the pitch.’ 

“And I told [him] the character and I told him he has crazy, erotic sex with Kathy Bates and does other things. 

“And he paused, and he goes, ‘This sounds like the role I was born to play.’ So, he signed up right then and there.”

American Horror Story seasons 1-8 are available on Netflix now.
