Paris Jackson says being "conflicted about my sexuality" as a teenager informed her portrayal of a vindictive teen in FX's "American Horror Stories."

When Matt Bomer and Paris Jackson found out "American Horror Stories" would be taking viewers back to the original Murder House, they couldn't say no. 

"I was running around taking pictures and being a total nerd about it," Jackson reveals. 

FX's "Horror Stories" is an anthology spinoff of the hit "American Horror Story" series, with each episode featuring a different horror tale and cast. The two-part opener, "Rubber(wo)Man," which premiered Thursday (and is now streaming on Hulu), follows a new family – two house flippers (Bomer and Gavin Creel) and their sadistic daughter, Scarlett (Sierra McCormick) – who move into the infamous Murder House from Season 1 of the original series.

You'll see some familiar connections to "AHS," including an infamous rubber suit, a cameo from Infantata (the stitched-up remains of the child living in the Murder House's basement) and the return of Bomer, who starred as Countess' lover Donovan in "American Horror Story: Hotel."

In the new series, Bomer plays Michael, a loving father to a serial-killing high school girl and husband to a frustrated co-parent. 

His goal? "Trying to keep his family together, trying to keep his daughter from going off the rails… and keeping his marriage intact," Bomer says.

"Even though this family is sort of magnified and sensationalized, the core of Michael's story is the fears that a lot of parents in 2021 have," Bomer says. "How do you stay connected to your daughter who is heading down a path you feel like you can't control?" 

Bomer, who is married and aproud father of three sons, says playing Michael was "rewarding." 

"It's a privilege to get to play a gay parent," he says. "I wanted to give those relationships the respect they deserved, because I do think the world needs to see and normalize…that gay parents have their own problems with their kids."

In contrast, Paris Jackson, who made her debut on the horror franchise, calls her character – Scarlett's classmate Maya —"vindictive" and "hard to relate to."

"I don't really know if there's a way to describe her in appropriate language. All the words I would use are considered inappropriate," Jackson quips. 

Maya pretends to want a romantic fling with Scarlett (McCormick), only to publicly humiliate and out her during a secretly recorded livestream. Jackson admits she was initially "infuriated" to portray such a mean character, especially after having struggled with her own sexual identity as a teenager.

"Just the idea of something like that happening makes my blood boil," Jackson says. "I remember … being conflicted about my sexuality and confused at 15, 16 years old. I remember having questions and not really knowing how to present myself or how to go about that."

However, what helped her get into character was understanding that Maya is just trying to cope with her sexuality — even if it's in an unhealthy manner.

"Maya does have feelings for Scarlett, and she's trying to hide it and bury it, but clearly her friends don't think that's OK. So she's doing what she can to make her friends comfortable and not let them know who she really is."

So what can viewers expect next week? Jackson, who has been watching the "AHS" franchise since it premiered in 2011, says viewers of the new anthology series will be rewarded by other callbacks.

Other actors include Kaia Gerber, Billie Lourd, Charles Melton and Danny Trejo. 

And this isn't even the half of it. Take a peek at some of the American Horror Stories cast. The brand new anthology series begins streaming July 15 only on #FXonHulu. #AHStoriespic.twitter.com/uKKEzBPNqi

Bomer adds that the show's unpredictability is what makes it so unique. "It's not an extended season to the show, it's a new world, a new story every week…you don't know what you're gonna get, and there's so much that is alluring about that."

‘American Horror Stories’ Star Sierra McCormick Reveals Significance of That Murder House Escape

TheWrap 17 July, 2021 - 08:11pm

“American Horror Story” spinoff “American Horror Stories” debuted Thursday on FX on Hulu with an homage to the original franchise’s iconic first season, “Murder House.” By the end of the two-part series premiere episode, titled “Rubber (Wo)man,” murderous heroine Scarlett (played by Sierra McCormick) has managed to do the unthinkable: Escape the Murder House and live to not just tell the tale — but return every year at Halloween to visit the eternally trapped ghosts of her love Ruby (Kaia Gerber) and dads Michael (Matt Bomer) and Troy (Gavin Creel).

We’ve seen many others try and fail at this task throughout “AHS” history, and most of the time it’s because someone who claimed to care about the person ended up killing them to keep them there. It looked like this was going to be the case of Scarlett too, until she’s able to convince Ruby to let her go — and doing so ensure she will always return.

“I think that’s really interesting that she’s like the one person that manages to make it out,” McCormick tells TheWrap. “And maybe that’s because she actually kind of goes through her metamorphosis and is like a fully formed person who is confident in herself by the end. And that maybe gives her the ability to leave, but still also come back because she has this wonderful love in life, and that’s Ruby. And I think Ruby’s love is what allows her to get the confidence and the ability to leave Murder House and it’s also what keeps her coming back. So I think there’s an interesting dichotomy there. I think finding Ruby and finding someone that validates her and validates her interests and her personal self gives her strength to leave, but also that person and that love and support is also what keeps her coming back.”

23-year-old McCormick, who had her breakout role as the star of the Disney Channel series “A.N.T. Farm,” says she has been a big “AHS” fan since high school, with her favorite installment being “Murder House.” The actress says this made her particularly excited to be playing the part of Scarlett, a teen who finds the “iconic” and “aesthetically striking” Rubber Man costume in the haunted mansion that her dads are trying to flip and turns herself into the female version of the killer gimp “AHS” Season 1 fans know all too well.

But McCormick was also careful to carve her own path when rocking the Rubber (Wo)man costume, choosing not to emulate “AHS” alums Dylan McDermott and Evan Peters, who wore Rubber Man outfits in their “Murder House” roles as Dr. Ben Harmon and Tate Langdon, respectively.

“I actually didn’t watch back any of the original performances, because I knew that [‘American Horror Story’ creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk] were trying to make [‘American Horror Stories’] its own thing. And Scarlett’s journey to becoming Rubber Woman is definitely her own thing,” McCormick said. “So I didn’t want to even subconsciously be trying to emulate or copy something else. I wanted it to feel really original, and the production team wanted the same.”

The “American Horror Stories” star says it didn’t end up being too difficult to create Scarlett’s unique take on Rubber (Wo)man, as the outfit does a lot of the heavy lifting.

“The costume is just really, really crazy to get into. It just feels very specific. So that sort of helps you. You just walk differently in it, you just have better posture in it. So I think just the natural aspects of the suit being the way that it is sort of aided in my performance.”

While there were a few specific things that the “American Horror Stories” team made sure McCormick did to call back to “Murder House,” “like the sort of cock of the head and some of the physicality that is just specific and iconic to Rubber Man — or Rubber Woman,” the “AHS” actress says she did “try to maintain originality.”

“I didn’t want to fall back into something else that had been done before. I wanted to make sure this was a completely new and different thing.”

If Scarlett on American Horror Stories Looks Familiar, Here's Where You May Know Her From

Yahoo Lifestyle 17 July, 2021 - 08:11pm

Although we've only seen two episodes so far, FX's American Horror Stories has already given us a new iconic character in the premiere: Sierra McCormick's Scarlett, aka the Rubber Woman. The prickly Scarlett becomes one of Murder House's latest victims after her dads (Matt Bomer and Gavin Creel) buy it to flip it into an upscale haunted-house experience. After a few nights in her new home, Scarlett's dark side intensifies when she puts on Tate Langdon's old gimp suit, and she spares no one who scorns her, especially not the mean girls at school. McCormick delivers a tour-de-force performance that explores every creepy and complicated aspect of Scarlett's character. So who is McCormick, and where might you have seen her before? Here's what to know about the 23-year-old actress's impressive résumé!

McCormick's illustrious child-acting career started in 2007, when she made a cameo in the sitcom 'Til Death and joined the season two cast of Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?. A year later, she portrayed Lilith in two episodes of Supernatural and booked a guest role on Hannah Montana. Over the years, you may have also spotted her on TV staples including Boston Legal, Criminal Minds, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

From her early days, McCormick is perhaps best known for children's projects such as Ramona and Beezus and Spooky Buddies. For a while, she became one of Disney Channel's predominant actors and starred in three seasons of A.N.T. Farm, in which she portrays Olive, a genius with a photographic memory and a penchant for facts. While in the Disney Channel rotation, McCormick also secured a recurring role on Jessie as Connie, a girl who pines after Cameron Boyce's laid-back Luke Ross.

Eventually, McCormick left the children's-entertainment circuit and started building an AHS-worthy scream-queen repertoire. Her Disney Channel persona was shed as she lent her talent to films like the slasher Some Kind of Hate, in which she stars as a ghost named Moira who can harm others by harming herself. McCormick also landed significant roles in the sci-fi film The Vast of Night and the horror-thriller VFW - the former actually earned her a Critics' Choice Super Award nomination. After seeing her on American Horror Stories, keep an eye out for McCormick in We Need to Do Something, another thriller project in which she's a young woman trapped in a bathroom with her family during a tornado.

We've yet to find out if McCormick will make further appearances in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's American Horror Story universe, but we wouldn't be surprised if she does. Along with Lana Winters and Fiona Goode, the Rubber Woman is a twisty character who's bound to go down in AHS history as a fan favorite!

“She looks more like Johansson than Scarlett.”

Each episode of the new show will feature a different, self-contained storyline. Kevin McHale, Aaron Tveit, and Kaia Gerber are set to star.

American Horror Stories star Sierra McCormick breaks down premiere | EW.com

Entertainment Weekly News 17 July, 2021 - 08:11pm

After months of speculation, the American Horror Story spin-off American Horror Stories — about which we all knew virtually nothing — premiered on FX on Hulu with the first of its various spooky tales. With a concept of telling multiple stories within one season, the show began with a return to some familiar stomping grounds: Murder House.

Here, at the season 1 setting for the main American Horror Story series, we meet Scarlett (Sierra McCormick), a young girl with an attraction to hardcore bondage and torture porn who moves into the cursed home with her two dads, Michael (Matt Bomer) and Aaron (Aaron Tveit). When she finds her own rubber suit, she quickly puts it on, the first step into her becoming Rubber Woman, the persona she adopts when she murders people — including the mean girls in her school.

McCormick spoke with EW about entering the American Horror Story-verse, expanding the world of the main series, and Scarlett's two-episode arc.

SIERRA MCCORMICK: A little relief, actually. I was definitely succumbing to that anticipation anxiety a couple of days before it was due to come out. And also it was stressful not being able to talk about it 'cause I was so afraid I would accidentally let something majorly important slip, but now that's not a problem anymore.

This came out really, really quickly. It was really surprising to me how quickly they were able to turn this into something awesome. We filmed... I'm trying to think back. April? We did this in April. I actually feel better about COVID when I'm on a set like American Horror Stories 'cause they're really on top of it. I was getting tested every single day and that just gives you a peace of mind, getting an email in your inbox every day that's like, "You don't have COVID for sure." ... I know that there were a few mega fans who would camp out across the street from Murder House just to get pictures, which I thought was very dedicated because we work some long hours and they were there the whole time.

I hadn't watched a show in quite a bit just because I can't watch TV much anymore. I just feel like I don't have the time to dedicate to an entire season of something. I just watch movies 'cause I can bang it out. One and done. But when I was in high school and I had a lot more time, I was a huge, huge fan of the show. Murder House, specifically, was always my favorite season. Someone dug through my Instagram and found this old photo that I posted like seven, eight years ago. It was of me and my friends all dressing up as the witches from Coven for a school Spirit Week or something.

Yeah. I auditioned under a completely different character name... I think for some reason I feel like it was Penelope. I could be wrong... I had no script, I didn't know the actual nature of the episodes. I just had two audition scenes. I taped with them and I sent them off and then I kind of forgot about it. I just didn't think that they would ever cast me for this. I was very surprised, like delightfully surprised, when I found out. This was 2021. I literally auditioned I think in March or so, and I went and shot in April. It was like a whirlwind. I went right into preproduction fittings — and getting fitted for that suit a couple of different times.

I mean, it's a pretty iconic and striking, if you will, look. I totally understand why a lot of the questions are about the suit.

I had no idea what to expect. I knew that these [episodes] could take pretty much any kind of turn. I just tried to keep my expectations pretty open. I start every project by looking at the script and being like, 'Oh my God! How the hell am I going to do this? I can't pull this off." And then I get there and I work with all the wonderful, amazing people, and then suddenly it clicks.

I haven't really done a lot of roles that have much of a sexual nature to them. I think just the fact that that was uncharted territory for me before this was a little bit daunting. I was like, "Oh! OK. Well, this has a pretty much exclusively sexual nature to it. So, I'm going to really be pushing myself here" — which is what I look for in any role. That's my criteria for deciding to do anything is like, if it's a challenge, if it's something I've never done before, if it's going to push me in some way. It definitely did.

Our intimacy coordinator. She's amazing. I never worked with one really much before, only in a very limited capacity. She was there for many scenes that we had to discuss, but she really put me at ease and made me feel just so much better about the nature of the scenes in general. The actual shooting of them, when it came time to do it, I didn't feel surprised. I felt like everybody had my back.

Yeah. That's fine. I can get to that place.

When I first read the script and started thinking about her as a character, I tried to think beyond the confines of Murder House and this universe to focus more on Scarlett's grounded qualities and what she's going through and the very real, very relatable things that she was experiencing in her life. That crossroad that she has reached in adolescence where she's not quite sure where she fits into the world and she's trying to figure it out. She maybe isn't quite confident in herself as a person or her sexuality. She feels pushed to go down this road that leads her to becoming Rubber Woman and doing all of these very heightened, crazy things. I tried to focus more on the real aspects of her character [to] let those sort of guide me to where she ends up.

I've only seen my two episodes, as well, so I can only speak on those. I think the very limited anthology, like the episode by episode, formula is really cool for people like me who currently don't feel like they can commit to watching an entire season, but they still love the universe and the atmosphere and the vibe that American Horror Story creates. It's the added binge-worthiness. I think is a really fun way to want to explore a really wide variety of different worlds and characters and actors within one season,

To my knowledge, yes. Unless there's something I don't I know.

I do know there are a couple of fun Easter eggs that they threw into our episodes. Maya [Paris Jackson's character], if you notice towards the end of the second episode, she's wearing Tate's [Evan Peters' American Horror Story season 1 character] "Normal People Scare Me" shirt. They threw in a couple of details like that were supposed to be call backs to the original Murder House season. I would leave it up to the fans that definitely know much more about it than I do to figure out what the rest of them are.

American Horror Stories Pays Tribute to Late Actor With Return of Surprise Character

ComicBook.com 17 July, 2021 - 08:11pm

This week saw the premiere of the first two episodes of American Horror Stories, a spinoff of the flagship FX drama with stories contained to just one or two episodes rather than a whole season. For the first two episodes of the series however the creators returned to an iconic location, the first ever from the show, season one's "Murder House." In the episode a young woman and her two fathers move into the haunted home with the hopes of turning it into a tourist location, but naturally the forces inside (specifically the Rubber Man) appear and start to influence things. That character from the first season wasn't the only to appear, and the second carried a little more meaning.

As long-time fans may recall, one of the many (MANY!) characters/ghosts that appeared in the Murder House was Thaddeus aka The Infantata, a creature reassembled from the pieces of the dead child of one family that lived in the house in the 1920s. Unlike the ghosts that occupy Murder House, Infantata lives exclusively in the basement and has a blood thirst that he takes out on persons who step down there. In addition to Rubber Man, Thaddeus also makes an appearance very briefly in the first episode, terrorizing some teens that are running for their lives through the basement. Though his appearance is fleeting, it's still special because the actor that originally played the part is no longer with us.

Originally character actor Ben Woolf played the role of Thaddeus but tragically passed away in 2015. For American Horror Stories, actor Shane Carpenter took on the part for the brief cameo. Out of all the characters that Murphy and Co. could have chosen to appear in their return to Murder House though, that they picked Thaddeus and allowed Woolf's legacy with the series to live on (Woolf also appeared in AHS: Freak Show in the role of "Meep") is a touching tribute, even if it's to a tiny monster that drinks blood.

American Horror Stories will debut new episodes every Thursday on FX on Hulu.. The series will see several cast members from the flagship series return (though playing entirely new characters) including John Carroll Lynch, Naomi Grossman, Charles Melton, and Billie Lourd. The series will also see the addition of Machete himself Danny Trejo as none other than Santa Claus.

After the show's conclusion, American Horror Story: Double Feature, the 10th installment of the hit series, will premiere on Wednesday, August 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX, and streaming the next day via FX on Hulu.

American Horror Stories is as frustrating as it is entertaining

The A.V. Club 17 July, 2021 - 08:11pm

Where “Rubber(wo)Man” could have easily been contained to one episode, Falchuk decides to offer more, more, more. The overall ongoings of the episode are all so frivolous, but the introduction of Ruby (Kaia Gerber), one of many ghosts within Murder House, and the relationship that sparks between her and Scarlett is actually somewhat intriguing. Whatever nonsensical proclamations about taking pleasure in hurting people the show makes feel almost irrelevant when it comes right down to it, as the creative team almost seems to be trying to pivot to something more sincere when it comes to their dating. It’s nothing unique, this idea of wanting to live together forever as they are now (or even the notion of one person being free while the other is “trapped”), but on some level the episode actually succeeds at making one understand what brings and keeps them together. It’s not in the way the show haphazardly approaches abuse and recovery, but more in the way that this couple manages to find some ounce of growth in characterization in spite of being in a wildly unrealistic situation that keeps getting messier.

American Horror Stories: All the Murder House Characters That Return

ComicBook.com 16 July, 2021 - 10:10pm

Full spoilers for the first American Horror Stories below! FX on Hulu has released the two episodes of its new spinoff series and with it returned to the franchise's most popular location, Murder House from the very first season. The two-part storyline focuses on brand new characters with married couple Michael (Matt Bomer) and Troy (Gavin Creel) and daughter Scarlett (Sierra McCormick) having purchased the property with the idea of turning it into a dark tourist destination. Though no major stars from the first season returned, the long and storied history of the home and its occupants is teased throughout including specific characters.

Obviously the biggest character that returns is the evil Rubber Man ghost. The spectre appears only a handful of times in the episode, guiding and tempting Scarlett to put on the suit and commit some murders, so it's unclear which spirit it is as Rubber Man (though the "Twisted Nerve" whistle is heard perhaps implying it's Tate Langdon). A few other entities from inside the home are also shown including Thaddeus aka The Infantata, a creature/entity that lives in the basement; and the Piggy Man, the ghost of a pig-head wearing Butcher seen in the first season of American Horror Story (and whose story was expanded on in AHS: Roanoke). Another entity was teased however, a big one.

One of the first of Scarlett's Rubber Woman is the family therapist, and since she's killed inside the Murder House she becomes trapped there forever like the rest of tits inhabitants. Merrin Dungey's Dr. Andi Grant speaks to the family a few other times, making reference to "another therapist" that is trapped in the Murder House, obviously alluding to Dylan McDermott's Ben Harmon. At one point Andi says she and the other therapist are "working on a book" about all of the spirits and entities trapped in the house, something that could definitely pop up in the AHS franchise again later.

The first two episodes of American Horror Stories will seemingly put Murder House behind them though with the series focusing on singular stories, and this perhaps being the only returning subplot.

American Horror Stories will debut new episodes every Thursday on FX on Hulu.. The series will see several cast members from the flagship series return (though playing entirely new characters) including John Carroll Lynch, Naomi Grossman, Charles Melton, and Billie Lourd. The series will also see the addition of Machete himself Danny Trejo as none other than Santa Claus.

After the show's conclusion, American Horror Story: Double Feature, the 10th installment of the hit series, will premiere on Wednesday, August 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX, and streaming the next day via FX on Hulu.
