Lady Gaga and American Horror Story? It’s a match made in monster heaven. Lady Gaga is on a roll these days. First she makes everyone swoon with her engagement announcement to Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney, then she wows fans with an amazing tribute to Julie Andrews at the Oscars. Now she’ll be joining American Horror Story season 5!
The big news is not only the casting, but also the reveal of Season 5’s theme. Each year, American Horror Story has a subtitle. According to Gaga, the watchword this year is “hotel.” This destroys the fan-based theory that the season 5 theme would be chemical warfare mutations.
“Make your reservation now. #GagaAHSHotel,” the pop star posted on Twitter along with a video of herself promoting the upcoming series.
As for Gaga, well, she doesn’t have a ton of acting experience (unless you count her entire persona). She’s had smaller roles in the films Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, but is she ready to step into a leading role? Based on her performance at the Oscar’s this year, we’re betting yes! While no other cast members for Hotel have been announced, fans are wondering whether the series’ mainstay actress Jessica Lange will be cast once again. She has worked with Ryan Murphy since the first season.
According to E! Online, other recurring cast members, Sarah Paulson and Emma Roberts, will reportedly be working on other Ryan Murphy shows. Paulson will be on American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson with John Travolta and Cuba Gooding, Jr. On the other hand, Roberts, will be working with Lea Michele and Jamie Lee Curtis on Scream Girls.
However, Lange isn’t set for any other Murphy-run show. Whether she’ll be included in American Horror Story season 5 is still unknown, although we can hope!
Nevertheless, the show runner posted a heartfelt message to the actress after American Horror Story: Freak Show ended last January: “Thank you Jessica…for everything. Always,” he said on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Lange previously shared her uncertainty at taking another AHS character to E! Online: “You know, I told him that we would sit down and have a long conversation when this was over,” she told the site, adding that she has “no idea at this point” about how Murphy can top her Elsa Mars character.
If she does decide to continue working with the TV producer on American Horror Story season 5, it will be very interesting to see how she will interact with Lady Gaga on the show.
