Lady Gaga To Star In American Horror Story
On 26 February 2015
Lady Gaga will star in American Horror Story season five. The fifth season of the FX popular thriller is titled American Horror Story: Hotel and it's expected to air this fall.
The singer posted a video revealing the news and new title on Twitter. "Make yor reservation now", she tweeted. This will mark Gaga's first starring role in a major production as an actress.
Mother Monster is the first cast member to officially check into Hotel. The Hollywood Reporter writes that AHS vets Sarah Paulson, Emma Roberts and Jessica Lange are unlikely to return to the franchise due to other commitments. However, since Roberts and Paulson were both cast in Murphy-led projects – Scream Queens and American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson, respectively – the showrunner could play with the schedules to bring them back into the fold.
Gaga's other acting credits include Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Machete Kills andThe Simpsons. She previously worked with AHS co-creator Ryan Murphy when she lent the use of her songs to his Fox musical comedy Glee in 2010. “I love Glee,” she said at the time.
At the Television Critics Assoc. winter press tour last month, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf teased that AHS‘ fifth season would be “very different” from its predecessors, adding that viewers can expect “an unusually large reinvention in between Book 4 and Book 5 relative to, say, between Book 3 [Coven] and 4 [Freak Show].”
