Finally it is here! FX have at last released the first full cast trailer for the fifth season of the anthology series! Entitled “Hallways” the trailer finally lets us see the cast including the much hyped Lady Gaga:
For all the hype surrounding Gaga we should not forget that her background is in acting with appearances in The Sopranos; in AHS: Hotel, Gaga stars as Elizabeth, the Hotel Cortez’s evil owner and a “wealthy social doyenne who is consumed with art, fashion and people and [who] has a nefarious plan that is revealed in the first episode that plays out over the season,” showrunner Ryan Murphy told reporters in August.
While the season is the first without leading lady Jessica Lange the large cast of regular players are all mostly returning. Kathy Bates plays Iris, who runs the hotel; Angela Bassett is Ramona, who has a strong and nasty relationship with Elizabeth and Finn Wittrock’s male model Tristan. Evan Peters is Mr. March; Matt Bomer is Donovan; and Sarah Paulson will play Hypodermic Sally, who hates Iris and has a dark relationship with Wes Bentley’s detective, who is investigating a series of grisly murders and staying at the hotel with his wife, played by Chloe Sevigny.
The Hotel cast also includes Emma Roberts, Richard T. Jones, Denis O’Hare (as a character fascinated with Elizabeth Taylor who also shares her name), Lily Rabe, Cheyenne Jackson as a fashion icon, Max Greenfield, Glee‘s Darren Criss and Twin Peaks‘ Madchen Amick.
AHS: Hotel premieres Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 10 p.m. on FX (USA).
