In what could be the most appropriate musician-turned-actor casting move in television history, Lady Gaga has signed on to join season five of American Horror Story. (And just days after she pretty much rejuvenated her singing career with her stunning performance at the Oscars.)
No word yet has been given on the Mother Monster’s role, but if they don’t use her beloved nickname, consider it a major cross-marketing opportunity missed. In a tweeted video, Gaga revealed that the title for the forthcoming season of the anthology series will be American Horror Story: Hotel.
FX hasn’t revealed any other details as of this writing, including whether or not series star Jessica Lange will be returning. Whatever the final situation, the AHS:Hotel will premiere in October of this year.
