American Horror Story – Season 5 – Matt Bomer Joins Cast + Jessica Lange Not Returning
Matt Bomer will star opposite Lady Gaga in American Horror Story: Hotel, the upcoming fifth installment of FX’s horror anthology series created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. The announcement was just made at the end of AHS‘ PaleyFest panel, in which Jessica Lange, star of the the first four installments, officially confirmed that she is leaving the franchise.
Bomer will play a lead in AHS: Hotel, with details about his character kept under wraps.
Jessica Lange announced to screaming fans at the American Horror Story PaleyFest panel tonight, “Yes, I’m done.” She will not be joining Lady Gaga in American Horror Story: Hotel, the fifth season of the Emmy-winning FX series next October.
“We’ve had a great run here. I mean, I absolutely love doing these four characters, and in all the madness, I love the writers and Ryan (Murphy) and the insanity of shooting it,” Lange told a full, top to bottom, Dolby Theatre.
Bomer said he was still unclear about what character he was playing. “I can’t confirm or deny that there might be a love interest” said Bomer regarding his character’s connection to Lady Gaga’s.
