Angela Bassett Joins Lady Gaga and Cast in ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’

Angela Bassett is going to be “making lots of trouble with Lady Gaga” on this upcoming season of American Horror Story: Hotel.

What an incredible pairing of co-stars this makes for Ryan Murphy’s latest anthology series.

Murphy revealed the news on Twitter today, writing:

The AHS vet previously played Desiree Dupree in “Freak Show” (the fourth season) and Marie Laveau in “Coven” (the third season),the latter of which she was nominated for an Emmy.

These updates have been trickling out (Evan Peters joined the cast last week while Kathy Bates was confirmed earlier this month), meaning plenty of guests, a concierge/owner, and other employees will be inciting fear within you in the highly anticipated iteration, due out this fall. Those already included in the cast include: Sarah PaulsonMatt BomerChloë Sevigny, and newbies Wes Bentley and Cheyenne Jackson.

If Murphy is creating a puzzle for us, we’re still in the stages of speculating what could be going on.

There’s a ballroom, Room 64, the hotel itself…but that’s the extent of what we really know.
