So far Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Wes Bentley, Chloë Sevigny, Matt Bomer, Lady Gaga and Cheyenne Jackson have been revealed as part of the cast in the next season of American Horror Story, this one being set at a hotel. Now we can add Angela Bassett. Ryan Murphy sent out another drip this morning confirming her, and her role:
In October, Angela Bassett will be making lots of trouble with Lady Gaga in the ballroom and elsewhere. #ahshotel
Two days ago WDF linked you to a rumored leak of the entire cast list. Was Angela Bassett on that list? The answer is…..YES. Score one for the rumormongers, and the list also mentioned she would be involved with the lounge! Bassett was on the show before, of course, so her inclusion might have been an easy guess. What truly remains to be seen is if Michelle Pfeiffer shows up as someone named “Martina McBride.”
American Horror Story: Hotel will be airing on FX sometime this fall.
