The International Business Times released an article yesterday revealing the full cast of the upcoming season of American Horror Story.
Being a big American Horror Story freak, I panicked and read through the list so fast I thought my eyeballs were going to fall out of my head. Despite some interesting changes, overall, I'm super excited about who they chose to star this season!
Here's the list of cast members (which is probably still subject to change) as posted by IBT:
He's been through every season so far, and now he's back and checking in!
Another regular through all four seasons so far, Sarah will join the cast as Janis Joplin. (WHAT?!)
The incredible, magical, talented Kathy Bates returns for her third season on AHS. (...can you tell I really love Kathy Bates?)
This handsome devil made his debut on AHS as the adorably insane Dandy Mott, and he returns to check in to the hotel, and I'm freaking out. YAY!
Portraying one of the hotel's previous owners, Martina McBride! This is a really cool change to the cast; Pfeiffer is iconic and a welcome breath of fresh air!
One of my personal favorites throughout the seasons, Rabe will play a hotel guest losing her mind. She has also played a nun losing her mind, and a witch who has clearly already lost her mind. She's a little too good at that...
- Holds for intense fangirl attack - we all know him from True Blood where he's already played a vampire, so creepy stuff isn't new to him. He'll be checking into the hotel and everyone will probably jump his bones, and I don't really blame them.
The always-spunky, fabulous diva will be returning as a jazz singer in the hotel. I hope she keeps her "I'm the best and I know it" attitude; with a combination of Marie Laveau and Desiree Dupree under her belt, she's going to run that hotel, honey.
He always seems to play characters we love to hate, most recently, selling Freakshow performers to museums for money (what a jerk). He'll be a bartender in this season, and I can't wait to see if I love him or hate him this season!
Cast as a lounge singer. I don't have much to say about this one yet, because she doesn't have any AHS experience under her belt, but we'll see...
He had a short run in Freakshow, but he's back and starring in Hotel! His description is basically "goody-two-shoes that makes sure no one gets into trouble"...where's the fun in that, Matt?!
Cast as the nasty maid who peeps on guests. She was recently in Into the Woods, so you might all know her from there!
My personal favorite woman in the whole world is back for Hotel, and I probably wouldn't have watched it if she wasn't. All I have to say is she's the greatest ever. I mean, Balenciaga...
This man's been nominated for Grammy awards for his performances in musical theater, and it doesn't hurt that he's kind of stunning. His character is a bellboy who "loves to gossip and is seen engaging in strange and suspicious behavior"...uh oh.
Another one to engage in said "strange activities"....she was the Lizard Girl in Freakshow! I'm so excited she's back this season!
Will be portraying Father Dominic Deon. Oh man, here we go...could this be an extension of Asylum?
Potentially friends with Father Dominic, he tries to cleanse the hotel of any evil, but apparently does a really awful job.
Described as the hotel inspector that everyone hates. Some of his credits include How To Get Away With Murder, Chasing Life, Law and Order: SVU and tons more.
You all remember her as the crazy nymphomaniac from Season 2! We've all been waiting for her to make her return, and now she's here as a happy homemaker. What a change.
One of my biggest celebrity crushes is returning as a scientist desperately searching for a job. I'm thinking some weird stuff is going to go on surrounding him...maybe some human experiments?
Veteran of Desperate Housewives and Mad Men, she's got a good handle on crazy things that may be thrown her way. She'll be portraying the hotel's realtor. Sorry, Christine, I don't know if you're gonna sell this one.
