Few actors have done half as many crazy things as Sarah Paulson, but for her, it’s all about balance. The American Horror Story actress recently turned down notch on her outlandish roles to portray one of her most human characters yet in Carol, this year’s most universal love story.
American Horror Story: Hotel, which premieres on Wednesday, turns the fear and shock factors up to maximum velocity. Season 5 is set in the titular Hotel Cortez, an ornate downtown Los Angeles hotel embellished with golden Art Deco architecture. But it’s the hotel’s hypnotic patterned carpeting – nothing less than a direct allusion to The Shining – shadowy corners and vacant lobby that assure us the darkest of things can, and will, happen in the most beautiful of places.
Sure, American Horror Story: Hotel can serve up spooky teasers all the live-long day, but when it comes to footage, FX is finally allowing fans to check in. Ring the bell for your official first look at Season 5, and preview what Sarah Paulson calls the bloodiest, hottest season yet.
It’s been some time since we’ve heard from American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, but with fall entering full swing amid Scream Queens and American Horror Story, FX branched out to the other side of the Ryan Murphy family tree. Check out the first American Crime Story teaser’s opening remarks, and learn when the star-studded cast takes the stand in 2016!
The usual round of creeptastic American Horror Story teases had Hotel looking a bit familiar, but does the full cast trailer open new doors on the “reinventions” FX promised us? Gander at Gaga, Bomer, Sarah Paulson and all the rest with our freakiest, showiest look yet at American Horror Story: Hotel.
American Horror Story: Hotel had nothing to show by its presence at Comic-Con 2015, but with filming in full swing, Season 5 is dripping an elevator’s worth of fresh blood. Not only do we have our first photos of the cast, but also fresh details on a “drillbit dildo” killer, connections to the first season, and much more.
The fifth iteration of FX’s American Horror Story hasn’t yet filmed enough Hotel footage for a proper trailer, but Ryan Murphy and the expansive cast took to TCA with plenty of new details on the fall premiere. Not only do we know what each character will be, we’ve also learned that past Horror Story characters will check in over time. Plus, free poster!
American Horror Story: Hotel’s latest castings haven’t done much to validate the series’ supposed Season 5 reinvention, but a new interview with Ryan Murphy might. Not only does the creator confirm that Denis O’Hare will return for Hotel, so too does the possibility of Jessica Lange’s return remain open, while a number of new Hotel details have emerged.
Now that its cast has reached the size of a small country, and set photos flood the net, FX and Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson at last has official shots of its high-profile cast. They definitely look like humans dressed as other humans. Of this, there can be little doubt.
Content as they were to reveal one returning guest star at a time, American Horror Story: Hotel seemingly suffered a mishap in recent months, as a purported cast-list leak gave away not only roles, but the likes of such stars as Donald Sutherland and Michelle Pfieffer. Now, series mainstay Sarah Paulson has debunked at least part of the list, but how much?
