Before production has even begun, American Horror Story Hotel is already letting blood after Lady Gaga posted her copy of the Season 5 script fresh with red smears and an Episode 1 spoiler!
If you're going to star in a show called American Horror Story your middle name might as well by Monster. Although creator Ryan Murphy has bosted an ensemble cast, with a number of notable names including Max Greenfield as well as Richard T. Jones checking in to American Horror Story Season 5 as Detective Hahn, the biggest draw by far has been the one cast member with arguably the least amount of professional experience but with no shortage of theatrics. And Lady Gaga's flare for drama was on display again this week after she made a delighfully gory little Instagram post that teased not only blood and camp, but, whether intentional or otherwise, potentially the title of the AHS Hotel's first episode title, which, somewhat anticlimactically, is called "Checking In".
Last week we were treated to a curiously red washed teaser trailer of American Horror Story Season 5's Lady Gaga. Now, taloned claws hoisted towards the camera, this latest picture gives us another insider view into the tone of the Horror Story hotel and Gaga's potential role in it. The teaser itself hinted at some kind of receptionist role: the maître d' who wields an eagle-eye view over the carnage. Something tells me Mother Monster will know exactly which rooms are occupied and which are conveniently vacant. Gaga, of course, comes just in time to replace the departing Jessica Lange, AHS's four-year mainstay. And from all reports, this will be one of the bloodiest instalmens yet. "The upcoming season that we’re doing is much more horror-based; it’s much more dark," show creator Ryan Murphy revealed to Deadline. It will be "a little bloodier and grislier I think than anything that we’ve done before; it’s straight horror this year." What other potential role could Lady Gaga be playing in American Horror Story Hotel?
