Cuba Gooding, Jr. has officially confirmed his involvement with season 6 of FX's American Horror Story!
Gooding will be a cast member in season 6 of American Horror Story, the actor confirmed in a recent interview with ABC News. This will be Gooding's second time working with co-showrunner Ryan Murphy, after playing the titular character in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.
"When Ryan calls you and says, 'Hey can you do this? Would you like to do that?' It's an immediate yes, no matter what it is," Gooding told ABC News. "That's how I felt when I first met him and now, going on two years later. It's just been an honor - it's been a treat."
This will also be Gooding's second time working with Sarah Paulson, who starred in The People v. O.J. Simpson as prosecutor Marcia Clark.
"It's really been a treat to finally engage with her on camera, because when we did 'The People v. O.J.' it was more about my scenes and then her scenes and us being in the courtroom but separate," Gooding explained. "But we're not separate no more!"
As for the upcoming sixth season of AHS, Gooding did not tease much, other than the fact that fans will see "a whole lot more of Cuba Gooding Jr. on the series", noting that the season has a "heightened sexuality."
Despite Gooding's involvement, the actor admitted that he hadn't seen or enjoyed American Horror Story, but he decided to binge-watch all five seasons before season 6 production.
"I don't like scary shows and things," he admitted, though he said that watching the full American Horror Story series made him appreciate the "brilliance that is that Murphy brand."
American Horror Story season 6 premieres Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX. FX still has yet to reveal the theme of the new season, an unprecedented move compared to previous years.
