‘American Horror Story: Roanoke‘ has started off strong with Cuba Gooding Jr. proving to be an excellent addition to the cast but his recent comments hint that we may have no real idea what is happening quite yet. The anthology horror series by Ryan Murphy is known to throw some amazing twists at the viewer but what lies in store could be the biggest yet. We already know if the past portions of this are correct and not being faked then it could directly lead to later events in the ‘American Horror Story’ timeline.
So far we know that the show looks to have the lead actors on what appears to be a paranormal reality series in the middle of a ‘Blair Witch’ style viewing that has to do with either an elaborate prank by some overly hillbilly neighbors or spirits from at least two different time periods that are haunting the house where these events take place.
According to Cuba Gooding Jr. though:
“The first season to me, if you watch those 13 episodes—it’s like what The Twilight Zone did with one episode. This season, remember I said that. When you see this season, you’ll realize how to interpret that Twilight Zone idea to an entire other level. When your head goes ‘boom’ and you’ve got brains all over the wall, you’re going to be like, ‘Motherfucking Cuba Gooding Jr.’ I wish I could tell you when it happens, but I can’t.”
That being said, we also have multiple actors playing the same character and when that was previously brought up to Gooding he said that:
“I’m just trying to phrase this so I can keep myself safe. Because I don’t want anybody get mad at me. Because they never give you information. When I go, ‘Who’s playing the real Matt?’ They go, ‘André’ and I go ‘from The Knick? Oh my god, I love that guy, I can’t wait to see him.’ . . . Well, I can’t continue this line of talking. If I continue this line of talking, I might give something away.”
Interestingly enough this is also the season that is somehow set to incorporate all of the previous seasons. This will be very interesting to see how they go about doing that. I wonder if each season is a part of this “paranormal reality series” that was introduced this season, because it seems doubtful that someone from each of the past seasons will have found their way to this house.
What do you think will end up being the big surprise on ‘American Horror Story: Roanoke’? Do you think that Cuba is giving us the ultimate trolling so we don’t know what to expect or are we in for something truly surprising? Share your thoughts below!
