NFL star Travis Kelce is working on another entertainment project. 

The 34-year-old Kansas City Chiefs tight end just signed on for a role in the new Ryan Murphy horror series for FX, Grotesquerie. According to Deadline, not many details are available yet, except that Niecy Nash-Betts, Courtney B. Vance, and Lesley Manville will also star in it.

Murphy is working on “Grotesquerie” alongside frequent collaborators Jon Robin Baitz and Joe Baken. The showrunner released an all-text teaser in February which included audio of Nash-Betts’ character speaking. 

“I don’t know when it started, I can’t put my finger on it, but it’s different now. There’s been a shift, like something’s opening up in the world — a kind of hole that descends into a nothingness,” she can be heard saying. 

“You say, ‘Well, hon, evil has always existed.’ You cite some statistic about how the world is getting better. Less murder. Less global horror. ‘Never been a better time to be alive.’ It’s not getting better! Something’s happening around us, and nobody sees it but me,” the teaser concludes.

Murphy is best known for popular projects including “American Horror Story,” “Nip/Tuck,” “Glee,” “American Crime Story,” “Pose,” “9-1-1,” and “Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.”

Kelce has been expanding his repertoire beyond football, including participating in his reality dating series “Catching Kelce,” which ran for one season in 2016. The athlete also just signed on to host Amazon’s “Are You Smarter Than a Celebrity?” game show.


Kelce recently worked as an executive producer on the indie film “My Dead Friend Zoe,” which premiered at SXSW this spring. He will also serve as producer of the upcoming documentary “King Pleasure,” which is a documentary about artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, the outlet noted. Kelce hosted “Saturday Night Live” in March 2023. He also hosts a podcast, “New Heights” with his brother, retired Philadelphia Eagles player Jason Kelce.

Kelce has been making headlines most frequently thanks to his high-profile relationship with Taylor Swift. The two have been spotted being affectionate in public on multiple occasions, which is a departure from how Swift usually behaves with the men she dates.
