 It seems that Olympic athlete Gus Kenworthy will be creating chills rather than freestyling on them this year. 

American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy announced today that Kenworthy will appear in season 9 of the popular horror drama. 

Murphy posted a picture of the hunky sports star on Instagram noting his coy grin upon getting the news of his casting:

"That special moment when you realize you have an Olympic medal AND will be playing Emma Roberts’ boyfriend on American Horror Story Season 9."

Having to be tight-lipped about the news, Kenworthy broke his silence after Murphy's social media reveal. 

“I guess the cat’s out of the bag… I’m So F**king Shook ILYSM @mrrpmurphy”

This isn't the sports stars first appearance on the small screen.

He had parts in the ABC comedy The Real O’Neals as well as a cameo in the campy horror franchise Sharknado 5: Global Swarming.

In 2015 Kenworthy came out publically, Rolling Stone noting the "freestyle medalist is the first action-sports star to come out."
