Another day, another cast member of American Horror Story: Hotel for Ryan Murphy to break. Where yesterday saw the FX horror guru adding Connie Britton to the world of American Crime, today marks the announcement that Asylum alum Chloe Sevigny will officially check into American Horror Story Season 5, Hotel.
Fans of American Horror Story have been clamoring since Season 2 to return original star Connie Britton to the fold, and Ryan Murphy has (sort of) granted their wish. Britton has officially joined FX’s American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson in the role of Nicole Brown-Simpson’s friend Faye Resnick.
Late this past weekend saw American Horror Story Season 5 booking Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson to for a stay in the Hotel, but questions of the returning major cast remain. Now. series lead Jessica Lange confirms her departure of the series, while fellow veterans Sarah Paulson and Denis O’Hare update on their status.
After the surprise announcement of Lady Gaga herself joining American Horror Story for its fifth season, Hotel, the rooms are booking up fast. Not only has Freak Show guest star Matt Bomer joined the cast, but so too has a 30 Rock alum booked a stay in the fifth cycle of Ryan Murphy’s FX horror thriller.
The future of FX’s American Horror Story remains a mystery in Season 5, considering Freak Show’s poor reception and series star Jessica Lange’s likely exit, but it seems we have a new Mother Monster. Lady Gaga herself will join the cast of American Horror Story Season 5, potentially dubbed Hotel, and nothing has ever made more sense, in the history of ever.
Each ‘American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson’ casting has proven more ridiculous than its predecessor, but Ryan Murphy’s new FX anthology series may yet have a sensible heart. Courtney B. Vance, husband to ‘American Horror Story’’s Angela Bassett, will attempt to don the gloves as Simpson’s famous lawyer Johnnie Cochran, according to reports.
FX’s ‘American Horror Story’ has admittedly struggled a bit in recent seasons, ‘Freak Show’ displaying some initial promise over the directionless ‘Coven,’ but similarly losing steam before this week’s coming finale. Now, with a fifth season confirmed for the fall, FX brass says claims the next cycle may reinvent the series far more than any previous.
Sigh. This, sadly, seemed inevitable. This American Life’s Serial podcast became an immediate, massive success, with everyone—probably even your mom—talking about the compelling case of Adnan Sayed, and whether or not he murdered his former high school girlfriend Hae Min Lee. It was like one of those fantastic longform true crime articles, elongated and made all the more riveting by host Sarah Koenig’s journalistic investigation, and the many players involved in the case to whom she spoke over the course of 12 episodes. And although the producers of Serial said they had no interest in selling the movie rights, that hasn’t kept studios from fighting over it.
We still don’t have the clearest picture of Ryan Murphy’s new horror-comedy anthology ‘Scream Queens’ for FOX, but its cast will certainly draw some attention. Following initial selections of Jamie Lee Curtis and Emma Roberts, ‘Scream Queens’ is adding to its horror-grinder ‘Glee’'s Lea Michele, ‘True Blood’'s Joe Manganiello, pop star Ariana Grande, and more.
We were willing to laugh it off when Ryan Murphy’s FX ‘American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson’ cast Ross Geller as Kim Kardashian’s dad, even considering the merits of Cuba Gooding Jr. as the titular defendant, and ‘AHS’ leading lady Sarah Paulson as his prosecutor. Now, John Travolta has officially joined FX’s new Ryan Murphy s–tshow as defense attorney Robert Shapiro, even taking a producer’s credit. Consider our chills multiplying.
