Very little has been shared about season five of American Horror Story, but current news is that Lady Gaga is joining the cast. Ryan Murphy has reportedly already secured her part, but has not shared her exact role as of yet. He has also not shared much about the season, and it was Lady Gaga who confirmed the title American Horror Story: Hotel.
The singer shared the news that she was joining the cast through her Twitter. It is unclear whether others from previous seasons will join Lady Gaga on the screen. Sarah Paulson is already appearing in American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson and Emma Roberts is working on Scream Queens. Both of these are from American Horror Story producer Murphy. Roberts will work alongside Lea Michele and Jamie Lee Curtis, while Paulson will work alongside Cuba Gooding Jr. and John Travolta.
Jessica Lange may join Lady Gaga on the small screen. The iconic actress previously said that season four would be the last for her, but then Murphy revealed that he was trying to talk her into joining them for a fifth season. He just needs to create the perfect character for her, and find something to top Elsa Mars.
American Horror Story: Hotel was still in the planning stages at the time of the season four finale. It appeared that a full idea of a plan and even characters had not been considered yet. It all starts with one single idea and escalates from there.
However, now it looks like characters have been created, as Lady Gaga is joining the American Horror Story cast. She has not shared who or what her character is, but has said that she is looking forward to it.
This will not be the first time that Lady Gaga has appeared on TV. She was in The Sopranos before she even started singing. Since getting her Lady Gaga stage name, she has appeared in The Simpsons and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. She has recently turned heads with shock from her appearance at the Oscars. While on stage, she sang a medley of songs from The Sound of Music, receiving a standing ovation for her theatrical voice. Even Julie Andrews was shocked and proud.
It is no surprise for some that Lady Gaga will appear in American Horror Story. Previous performances would indicate that she has the ability to pull something like that off. However, there are many people who worry that Lady Gaga will not be able to pull a large role off. Her previous roles were small.
The good news is that Lady Gaga has had musical theater training. That will help her with her acting abilities, and could help to support her role on American Horror Story: Hotel. Other actors and actresses have surprised many when they take on American Horror Story roles. Neil Patrick Harris shocked some How I Met Your Mother fans when they saw his psychotic ways in the most recent season.
Only time will tell. While very little about the new season of American Horror Story has been shared, Lady Gaga is joining the cast.
