It's been an interesting few days for Ryan Murphy's projects. With Glee airing it's double wedding episode, both of Murphy's other shows have had some interesting spoilers revealed.
Yesterday afternoon, Lady Gaga not only announced that she will be a series regular in the upcoming fifth season of American Horror Story, but also that the subtitle for the upcoming season will be Hotel. I'm not Gaga's biggest fan but I have to admit that she's actually pretty perfect for this show and given that Ryan Murphy has talked about the forthcoming season being something of a reboot, this could be a good thing for the show. Right now, Gaga is the only confirmed cast member for Season 5 but the cast and crew of Freak Show will be at Paleyfest next month, so hopefully some more details will emerge. The idea of a hotel setting is also pretty too, right?
Meanwhile for Scream Queens, several other cast members have been announced. As regulars, viewers can expect Diego Boneta (Rock Of Ages) as a handsome but bookish guy, Glen Powell (The Expendables 3) as a popular jock who gets all the girls. Also added to the cast are Lucien Laviscount (Coronation Street), Skyler Samuels (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Niecy Nash (Getting On) and Billie Lourd (Star Wars: Episode 7, daughter of Carrie Fisher). Meanwhile IMDB have names for certain characters but seeing as it's that site in particular, I'm going to wait for a better confirmation source. Either way, it's nice that we're getting some lovely male totty on this show as well as some brilliant female characters.
You know it's going to be very interesting watching both American Horror Story: Hotel and Scream Queens almost side by side towards the end of this year.
