Travis Kelce lands role in Grotesquerie

Travis Kelce has joined the cast of Ryan Murphy's upcoming horror series 'Grotesquerie'.


Travis Kelce has landed his first major acting role in 'Grotesquerie'.

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end - who is dating Taylor Swift - has joined the cast of Ryan Murphy's upcoming FX series in an undisclosed role, his new co-star Niecy Nash has revealed.

Niecy shared a behind-the-scenes video with Travis on Instagram, which she captioned: "This is what happens when WINNERS link up‼️ @killatrav Welcome to Grostequerie!"

In the clip, she said: "Guys. Guess who I'm working with on 'Grotesquerie'..."

Travis, wearing a white shirt, then appeared in shot and they both laughed as he said: "Jumping into new territory with Niecy"

The Super Bowl champion reshared the video on his own Instagram Story and wrote: "Stepping into a new world with one of the legends @niecynash1 (sic)"

The 34-year-old sportsman will also appear alongside Courtney B. Vance and Lesley Manville in the horror show, but plot details have not been revealed.

Travis' only previous acting appearance was a surprise cameo on an episode of 'Moonbase 8' back in 2020, but he recently signed up as host of 'Are You Smarter Than A Celebrity?'.

He recently said in a statement: "I grew up loving game shows, and I’m excited to be following in the footsteps of so many TV icons by hosting my very first one with 'Are you Smarter than a Celebrity?'. The original show is a great success, so to be bringing a new format with everyone’s favourite celebrities to the screen, will definitely be entertaining."

Travis - a previous guest host on 'Saturday Night Live' in 2023 - joked that he's glad to be hosting the show, rather than competing on it.

He quipped: "I’m just happy to be on the hosting side of the equation here and excited to see how these famous faces keep up."

'Are You Smarter Than a Celebrity?' is set to stream on Prime Video.

Despite his ventures into TV, Travis is still maintaining his football career and recently signed a new $34.25 million contract with the Chiefs, which has made him the highest paid tight end in the NFL.
