‘American Horror Story’ Season 5 Returns Angela Bassett to ‘Hotel,’ Why Not
Rumors have been flying over the past week that the star-studded Season 5 cast of American Horror Story: Hotel may have leaked, though FX is sticking to its one-at-a-a time announcement plans. Latest to check into the Hotel is none other than Coven and Freak Show star Angela Bassett, with perhaps a less … tripled appearance, lets say.
A leaked breakdown of the American Horror Story Season 5 cast (beware of major potential spoilers) seemingly supports Murphy’s words on Bassett’s role, claiming that the star will play Lolita Jones, a jazz singer in the hotel bar and rival to Lady Gaga’s character. For the moment at least, this remains unconfirmed.
In addition to Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson, Bassett joins a Hotel cast that thus far includes returning Coven alum Kathy Bates, Asylum star Chloe Sevigny, Freak Show guests Wes Bentley and Matt Bomer, along with new additions Cheyenne Jackson. FX boss John Landgraf described American Horror Story Season 5 as an “unusually large reinvention” of the series, while Jessica Lange confirmed her exit, and series stars Denis O’Hare has given an optimistic outlook on appearances.
Casting may yet bring some surprises, while Season 5 production on American Horror Story: Hotel will commence in California later this summer. What other past series stars will check in for the FX horror drama’s fifth run?
