The NFL star and boyfriend of Taylor Swift, 34, sported an all-white ensemble and clutched a script as he strolled to set.

His hair appeared to have been dyed black and he sported beard dye as he joined his co-stars for the drama.

Niecy Nash-Betts, 54, was also seen heading to set while clad in a figure-hugging black dress while Courtney B. Vance was clad in a doctor’s uniform, teamed with a stethoscope.

Lesley Manville will also be involved alongside Kelce, who was recently named the host of Are You Smarter Than a Celebrity?

Nash-Betts, who has previously worked with Murphy winning an Emmy for her role in Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, shared a video from set to her Instagram.

‘Guys, guess who I am working with on Grotesquerie?’ the actress teased, before panning over and revealing Kelce.

‘Jumping into new territory with Niecy!’ the Kansas City Chiefs tight end proclaimed.

‘We on site!’ Niecy-Betts added.

Kelce reposted the video to his own Instagram story, writing: ‘Steppin into a new world with one of the legends,’

Taylor’s nemesis Kim Kardashian is notably one of the stars in Murphy’s latest American Horror Story: Delicate.

Swift played Bombalurina in the dismal 2019 adaptation of the musical Cats, which was a critical disappointment and a box office flop.

She made her film debut in the 2010 romantic comedy Valentine’s Day, which also starred Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Taylor Lautner and Bradley Cooper.

Her other acting credits include a role in The Giver as well as a voice part in the animated Dr. Seuss movie The Lorax.

The Lover songstress was the subject of the 2020 Netflix documentary Miss Americana, which premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Though Cats was panned, Taylor previously insisted she has ‘no complaints’ about starring in the film.

Speaking at the time, Taylor – who was nominated along with Andrew Lloyd Webber for the Golden Globe for Best Original Song for their track Beautiful Ghosts from the film – said: ‘I’m happy to be here, happy to be nominated, and I had a really great time working on that weird-a** movie.’

Travis Kelce

The casting for Grotesquerie comes after Kelce’s acting debut as a host on Saturday Night Live in March of 2023. With his high-profile relationship with Taylor Swift launching his fame to new levels, Kelce also made a cameo with the 14-time Grammy winner on SNL in October.

The Kansas City Chiefs star had a go at unscripted TV in 2016 when the reality dating series ‘Catching Kelce’ ran for one season.

Additionally, Kelce has done some work behind the scenes. His most recent project came in his executive producing debut on the indie film My Dead Friend Zoe, which premiered at SXSW. Kelce will also produce a documentary called King Pleasure, revolving around artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Kelce has long had his sights set on the TV and movie industries, but the tight end is not waiting until the end of his NFL career to get his toes in the water. In January, Kelce revealed that he plans to be as famous as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
