Evan Peters from American Horror Story recently took some time to talk with NY Mag where he dished on auditioning for the role of Peeta and doing a scene with Jennifer Lawrence.
He’s American Horror Story’s school shooter, rapist, demon daddy, and homophobic killer who should never be allowed near a fire poker again.

(Never mind that he’s insane!) We spoke with Peters ahead of tonight’s season finale about whether his fangirls are right in the head, auditioning for The Hunger Games, and lube.
You tested for the role of Peeta in Hunger Games, right?

Have you seen the trailer?
Yeah, it looks amazing. And I love Jennifer Lawrence. She’s a total fox. And such a good actress. It’s ridiculous.
