    Stop saying “election themed season”. Ryan Murphy confirmed many times that this season is not about the elections. It will begin the night of the elections but that’s all.

      Ryan Murphy says a lot of things. He was the one who also originally said it was centered around the election.

    • Stanz says:

      Ryan Murphy hiring a hot young thing? That NEVER happens!

      Also, as every season since season 1…..Ryan Murphy doesn’t know WHAT the show is about this season. They play it by ear, that’s why it’s been so bad.

    Colton Haynes is playing the equivalent to Jared Kushner mark my words.

  3. fernando933 says:

    He’s always an eye candy to look at

  4. Lyndy says:

    Well seeing as this is Ryan Murphy pretty sure he was cast because he’s HOT & gay….otherwise, Colton cannot act.

  5. roguelm says:

    I like colton…but from the casting news so far for the season overall, it’s a bit lackluster. For sure it’ll still be fun though.

  6. Haz says:

    I think I’m just going to skip this season…I wouldn’t be shocked if Murphy announced that Nene Leakes was joining the cast.

  7. Mel says:

    I’m sure he’s a great guy but I’ve never been impressed by his acting.

  8. Chris says:

    I miss Roy/Arsenal on “Arrow”! I wish he would come back to do another guest appearance on “Arrow” next season!

  9. Joey Padron says:

    Good news Colton will be on the show in the new season! Can’t wait to find out what role he will play on the show.
