‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ Returns Lily Rabe for Killer New Role
Even after Comic-Con 2015, American Horror Story isn’t finished booking old favorites for its fifth season Hotel. Franchise veteran Lily Rabe is the latest to check in for a fall stay, albeit with a bit more blood than we’re used to, joining the Horror serial in a killer role.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Hunger Games dropout and The Whispers star Rabe has entered talks for a Season 5 role as a former guest of the titular Hotel, and perhaps not coincidentally, also a serial killer. Should everything iron out, Rabe would continue her streak of appearing in every season, from Nora Montgomery of Murder House, to Sister Mary Eunice of both Asylum and Freak Show, as well the Stevie Nicks-loving Misty Day of Coven.
Following the additions of New Girl star Max Greenfield, Cheyenne Jackson and Lady Gaga, the Hotel cast thus far includes returning Coven alum Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Asylum star Chloe Sevigny, Freak Show guests Finn Wittrock, Matt Bomer and Wes Bentley, and franchise regulars Denis O’Hare, Evan Peters and Sara Paulson. FX boss John Landgraf described American Horror Story Season 5 as an “unusually large reinvention” of the series, while Jessica Lange confirmed her exit, but remains open to appearances in future seasons.
Season 5 production on American Horror Story: Hotel will commence in California later this summer, but who else can we expect from the usual suspects this year?
