Travis Kelce landed his first major acting role.

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end has been cast in Ryan Murphy's new horror series "Grotesquerie" alongside Niecy Nash-Betts, Courtney B. Vance, and Lesley Manville, according to Variety's Michaela Zee. The series is set to premiere on FX in the fall.

Kelce confirmed the news in an Instagram video posted by Nash-Betts on Tuesday.

"Jumping into new territory with Niecy," Kelce said.

Kelce spoke about his Hollywood aspirations earlier this year, saying he plans to "dabble into everything." He served as a producer on the 2024 film "My Dear Friend Zoe," which premiered at SXSW in March, and is also set to host the upcoming Prime Video game show "Are You Smarter Than a Celebrity?"

The 34-year-old recently signed a new deal with the Chiefs that'll pay him $34.25 million over two years, making him the NFL's highest-paid tight end.
