It's just been confirmed that the new season of American Horror Story has bagged an exciting new lead - who better for a show full of little monsters than Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga?

AHS Season 5 - titled 'Hotel' - has sent fans wild imagining which other cast members might be added or be returning, so let's check out some fan favorites to join...

Jessica Lange

It's been a long, hard journey of will she-won't she for fans determined to get Lange back on board - some even say No Lange, No AHS - and how perfect would she be as an overprivileged Glamazon waltzing into the hotel foyer? Lange has already worked some Delphine Seyrig (pictured above) style points...

Possible role: Luxury lovin' lady a la Daughters of Darkness

Evan Peters

Evan's appeared in every series of American Horror Story so far, and fans would be disappointed if he failed to check in to Season 5. That little baby face is suited to good guys or killer weirdos so there's a lot of range for Murphy to work with...

Possible role: heroic poor kid who can't afford to stay at the hotel

Taissa Farmiga

Taissa has been with AHS from the very first season, and she certainly seems to be a fan favorite. Especially as Emma Roberts has been confirmed for Ryan Murphy's other project Scream Queens, we're gonna need Taissa on board to give that snarky sista vibe for the new series.

Possible role: plucky young honeymooner who senses something's up

Finn Wittrock

A newcomer to American Horror Story, Finn impressed with his turn as deranged Dandy Mott in Freak Show. Let's hope that there's a crazy new role for him in the hotel - he'd certainly make a good creepy resident...

Possible role: a Norman Bates type

Sarah Paulson

If I had my way, Sarah Paulson would be included in every single show on TV. She is an awesome actress and ROCKED American Horror Story in both Asylum and Coven, where her roles were appropriately badass for a woman of her stature. She's joined American Crime Story, but hopefully this won't prevent her from staying at the AHS Hotel...

Possible role: woman locked in an attic room... who escapes...

Shout out to Lily Rabe, Jamie Brewer, Frances Conroy and Angela Bassett, who I'd also love to see return!
