American Horror Story: Freak Show alum Chrissy Metz has been cast as a series regular in Dan Fogelman’s pilot at NBC. Written on spec by Fogelman, the untitled dramedy is made up of a unique ensemble of characters all born on the same day. Metz will play Kate, who, like many women, struggles with her eating habits and body image. She uses Post-It notes throughout her apartment as discipline aids to remind herself of her dietary actions. Kate is Kevin’s twin sister but, from the surface level, the complete opposite of him. Metz, repped by Pantheon and attorney Neil Meyer, joins previously cast Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, Justin Hartley, Sterling K.Brown and Ron Cephas Jones.
