Kim Kardashian acting roles

A full history of Kim Kardashian’s acting roles before she stars in American Horror Story

Cinema peaked when she got crushed by an asteroid in Disaster Movie

Some may have reacted in shock, disbelief or dismay when Kim Kardashian was announced as one of the new faces in the main cast of American Horror Story season 12, currently dubbed AHS Delicate – but not me. Not me, I say. For me, I would take anything to spice up the stale of American Horror Story, and casting the modern day Meryl Streep that is Kim Kardashian is one of the most joyous pieces of news I’ve ever heard in my ears. Why? Because it’s fun. We’re all having a bit of fun, and before the Kim Kardashian acting masterclass takes place when we all sit down to watch American Horror Story season 12, here’s a brief rundown of all the roles she’s had previously. They all deserved Oscars.

When an asteroid crushed her to death in Disaster Movie

I’m sorry but this is the kind of edge of your seat shocking horror American Horror Story could only dream of. Ryan Murphy is feverishly taking notes as we speak.

She was in a film with Chris Pratt?

It’s basically a film where Chris Pratt and his pal get transported into a ‘pornography land’ and everyone acts like they’re in a porno? Kim Kardashian plays a character called Summa Eve. It’s deeply random.


Kim played Kourtney in her time on Saturday Night Live, an appearance that impressed Ryan Murphy so much it’s what he said inspired him to cast Kim Kardashian in his next season of American Horror Story.

Ryan Murphy said the following in regards to casting Kim Kardashian in one of the acting roles on AHS: ““Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world and we are thrilled to welcome her to the AHS family. Emma [Roberts] and I are excited about collaborating with this true force in the culture. Halley Feiffer has written a fun, stylish and ultimately terrifying role especially for Kim, and this season is ambitious and unlike anything we have ever done.”
