American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson recently cast doubt over everything we thought we knew of Season 5's Hotel stay, and the latest casting may yet have confirmed that. New Girl star Max Greenfield will bring some fresh blood to FX’s Horror Story franchise, but likely won’t keep it pumping for very long.

Doing something new and different for a change, franchise creator Ryan Murphy revealed details of Greenfield’s guest arc, albeit in a way that suggested New Girl’s Schmidt wouldn’t stick around the Season 5 Hotel very long. Figuratively, anyway:

In addition to Sarah Paulson, the Hotel cast thus far includes fellow veteran Evan Peters, returning Coven alum Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Asylum star Chloe Sevigny, Freak Show guests Wes Bentley and Matt Bomer, along with new additions Lady Gaga and 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 star Denis O’Hare has given an optimistic outlook on appearances.

Season 5 production on American Horror Story: Hotel will commence in California later this summer, but what other surprises lie in store for the remaining cast announcements?
