Lady Gaga Joins American Horror Story As New Female Lead — WATCH TEASER!
Lady Gaga has joined “American Horror Story” as the new female lead in the next installment of the FX horror anthology. Check out the teaser below!
The pop star revealed the unexpected news on Twitter on Wednesday, sharing a short clip showing her in a beaded mask. “American Horror Story, season 5,” Gaga says before removing the face gear and whispering “hotel,” suggesting the full name of the new chapter could possibly be “American Horror Story: Hotel.”
Jessica Lange, who was a female lead on the series since it debuted in 2011, is not expected to return for the upcoming episodes, though that is not yet official and subject to change. Additional casting details and plotlines have also not yet been released. The most recent season, “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” ended in January, and the new one with Gaga is slated to premiere in October.
This will mark Gaga’s biggest acting role to date. She previously appeared in an episode of “The Sopranos,” and made her film debut in 2013’s Machete Kills. She was also featured in last year’s Muppets Most Wanted and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. “American Horror Story” co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are known to be big fans of the star, previously creating a “Glee” tribute episode in her honor. What do you think of Gaga joining “American Horror Story”?
