How many more stars can possibly check in to American Horror Story: Hotel!?
A day after announcing that Freak Show alum Finn Wittrock will be joining the cast of the fifth season of FX‘s hit anthology series, Ryan Murphy revealed another AHS veteran will be returning as well!
It’s been reported that Denis O’Hare, who played the creepy burned man in season one of the series, will be joining the cast of Hotel!
Murphy explained that other returning favorites can be expected to take on different roles in Hotel, detailing:
“Everybody in the show is very excited about this season, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters particularly because in every season thus far they’ve always been sort of the heroes, the good guy or the good lady so to speak, and this season they’re playing absolute evil villains. So they’re very excited about that and I think people will really enjoy it, and the Lady Gaga part is bananas good.”
While the upcoming season is packed with AHS veterans and exciting franchise newbies, fans are still lamenting about the absence of series anchor Jessica Lange.
But don’t check out just yet! The 66-year-old recently revealed she could be enticed to return to the series if approached the right way, saying:
“If Ryan came to me and said, ├óΓé¼╦£Would you want to do a small character for a couple episodes?’ I would absolutely say yes if I liked it. This was a great collaboration, so I would love to keep working with him.”
Anything is possible when Ryan Murphy is involved! American Horror Story: Hotel will premiere in October on FX.
