RYAN MURPHY'S "POSE" ANNOUNCES NEW CAST MEMBERS

Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek and Tatiana Maslany Join The Cast A Day After POSE Announces The Largest Cast of Transgender Actors In Series Regular Roles Ever For A Scripted Series

LOS ANGELES, CA October 26, 2017 - Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek and Emmy Award(R)-winner Tatiana Maslany have joined the cast of Ryan Murphy and FX Network's POSE, which begins shooting in November in New York City.

Peters (American Horror Story, the X-Men franchise) and Mara (American Horror Story, House of Cards) play New Jersey couple Stan and Patty, who get sucked into the glamour and intrigue of New York City in the 1980s. Van Der Beek (Varsity Blues, Dawson's Creek, What Would Diplo Do?) plays Peters's financial kingpin boss Matt. Maslany (Orphan Black, Stronger) plays a modern dance teacher who takes a special interest in the talent of Damon (the previously announced Ryan Jamaal Swain).

Acclaimed choreographer Ryan Heffington (Sia's "Chandelier" video, The OA) will choreograph Maslany's and Swain's dance sequences.

POSE is co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals. Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall and Sherry Marsh serve as additional executive producers of the FX series.

Peters, Mara, Van Der Beek and Maslany round out a cast that includes Tony Award(R) winner Billy Porter and the largest number of transgender actors in television history to have series regular roles. The series examines several aspects of New York City life in the 1980s, including the ballroom scene, and the art and financial boom of the later part of the decade.

Further information about the new cast announced today:

Evan Peters is currently starring in the seventh season of FX's Emmy-nominated series American Horror Story: Cult. Created and produced by Ryan Murphy, the show has featured Peters in all of the previous six seasons. He will next star in Bryan Buckley's film PIRATES OF SOMALIA, alongside Al Pacino and Barkhad Abdi.

Directed by Simon Kinberg, the cast also includes Jennifer Lawrence, Sophie Turner, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender. The film will release on November 2, 2018.
