Irony Much: Lena Dunham Will Star In 'American Horror Story'

Maybe she'll play herself.

Prepare to have the biggest scare since Jack Nicholson shouted "Here's Johnny!" in The Shining. America's least favorite exhibitionist and number one abortion propagandist will star in season seven of the FX show American Horror Story.

The show's executive producer, Ryan Murphy, announced Dunham's addition to the cast on Twitter.

"Thrilled that my talented friend Lena Dunham is joining the AMERICAN HORROR STORY family," wrote Murphy, via Twitter. 

Dunham, the woman who once said she wished she could show solidarity with the sisterhood by having an abortion, will make a frightful addition to the popular series. Maybe she'll reprise her Halloween costume when she went as a Planned Parenthood abortionist.

No indication has been made as to what part Lena Dunham will play or what the season will focus on. Perhaps Dunham will simply disrobe, as she did frequently on her own former show Girls. Plenty of nightmares to be had in that scenario.
