Travis Kelce has reportedly been cast in the upcoming FX series Grotesquerie in an unknown role. Expected to debut this fall, the show is a horror series created by Ryan Murphy.

According to an initial report from Deadline, "As is the case with all Murphy projects, details about Grotesquerie are scarce." However, Niecy Nash-Betts, Courtney B. Vance, and Lesley Manville have all been cast.

For Kelce, this represents another major step toward his life after football. He made his hosting debut and displayed his acting chops on Saturday Night Live, though this is his first time being cast in a high-profile series.

Kelce is signed on to host the Amazon game show Are You Smarter Than a Celebrity? and executive produced My Dead Friend Zoe that premiered at SXSW.

He's clearly got a passion for performance. We've seen his New Heights podcast with his brother, Jason, take off to numbers reflective of the name. Kelce has an extremely bright future in the industry it seems, so it'll be neat to watch him in a different light.

Presumably, Kelce's role in the show won't interfere with football activities. He just signed a two-year contract to become the NFL's highest-paid tight end, and we all know how much he cares about winning a third straight Lombardi Trophy.

Murphy is an experienced director, producer and writer. He created hit shows like Nip/Tuck, Glee, and American Horror Story. It's an incredibly opportunity for Kelce, proving just promising his future prospects are even after leaving the Chiefs.
