    Travis Kelce will be starring alongside Niecy Nash-Betts, as he is set to make his acting debut in Ryan Murphy’s FX series ‘Grotesquerie‘. Talking about the same on the latest episode of his podcast, the star said, “It’s been so much fun” to work with Ryan Murphy, an “unbelievable writer, director, producer, all of the above.”

    Kelce noted that Murphy has a knack for excelling in every aspect of the production. “Ryan Murphy is [an] unbelievable writer, director, producer, all of the above, man. He’s just — there’s nothing he can’t do and everybody’s just been so helpful in making me feel comfortable,” the 34-year-old NFL star said, adding that “on top of that, just giving me kinda the direction I need and the coaching I need to portray the part that I’m in.”

    However, being new to the field, Kelce admitted to feeling out of his element among the seasoned actors, referring to himself as a “jabroni.”  “I feel like an amateur. And, uh, I haven’t gotten fired yet so we’re doing good. They haven’t told me to f—ing kick rocks after the first week, so it’s been awesome,” he said.

    Travis Kelce who began filming for the show just a few days ago, hinted that the show is quite intriguing . “I don’t want to give too much away, but the name itself can tell you it’s quite a mystery and every scene has just been so much fun to be in,” he said. “I’m just taking it scene by scene and trying to make sure that I remember my lines. I’m very amateur at this,” the star added.

    He also opened up about the challenges of transitioning into acting during the podcast. Kelce revealed his disbelief at getting cast for the role. “I was kinda blown away and kinda, like, shocked that he was willing to give me a role like this, because it is a big role on the show,” he said about Murphy.

    He seemed very confident that I’d be able to do this and he kinda injected that in me the first conversation that we had. So hopefully I don’t bomb this for him,” the star added.

    On May 7, Kelce’s co-actor on the show, Niecy Nash-Betts shared a clip of them on set on Instagram. “Guys, guess who I am working with on ‘Grotesquerie’?” she teased, revealing Kelce who exclaimed, “Jumping into new territory with Niecy!”
