Well this is definitely a change from Battleship and Friday Night Lights!
Taylor will play Bruce Niles, a gay investment banker who is SO moved by the horrors that result from HIV/AIDS that he becomes an activist fighting to raise awareness about the disease.
No news yet as to how this "movie" will take shape… we've heard it could be turned into a mini series, but it may just be a fully-fledged, uninterrupted film.
Either way, like most things Ryan Murphy touches, we're sure it'll be riveting!
