The casting news is coming thick and fast now for American Horror Story: Hotel.
Jessica Lange has confirmed what most of us already knew; that she won’t be returning in any guise for the Fox series’ 5th run.
This should of course be seen as an opportunity for the likes of Sarah Poulson, Kathy Bates or even the rumoured Michelle Pfeiffer taking the leading lady role.
Perhaps Lady GaGa can step up?
While the female casting may be missing one significant face, the male casting is adding some considerable quality in the form of Matt Bomer (The Normal Heart, Magic Mike and White Collar).
Bomer appeared in Freakshow meeting a horrific end at the hands of Dandy (Finn Wittrock also returning).
Also confirmed is Ryan Murphy alumni Cheyenne Jackson as well as Wes Bentley, who also appeared last season.
Evan Peters is also back, and here’s hoping the show gets back on track after an uneven 4th run with Freakshow being a disjointed effort at best.
American Horror Story: Hotel debuts this fall on Fox.
