A&E and Lmn to Revisit O.J. Simpson Trial With Anniversary Specials

10 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Marking 20 years since viewers sat around their televisions to watch the verdict of the “trial of the century,” Lmn and A&E will pair up to revisit the criminal and civil trials against O.J. Simpson in two event specials.

The networks will air two consecutive documentaries about the high-profile trial: “The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story” and “O.J. Speaks: The Hidden Tapes.” Both specials promise to grant “unprecedented access” to the trial that the nation watched two decades earlier.

The Lmn special, “The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story,” will unveil new details and rare footage regarding the criminal trial, including a never-before-heard audio of Simpson before the infamous Bronco chase.

The A&E special, “O.J. Speaks: The Hidden Tapes,” will go inside the civil suit against Simpson for the wrongful deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. »

On last season of American Horror Story, we got to see how Freak Show connects to Asylum - the first time any two of creator Ryan Murphy's separate seasons are connected.

The connection thing was kicked off when Murphy first revealed that all of American Horror Story's seasons are connected in an interview, so now we're eager to see how they tie together. Keep reading to see how the seasons are already connected. »

Lady Gaga Will Vamp It Up on American Horror Story: Hotel

13 hours ago | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

It’s a role she can really sink her teeth into! A source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that Lady Gaga will play a several-hundred-year-old bloodsucker in FX’s American Horror Story: Hotel. "Her character is the hotel owner and the mother of 10 identical vampires who are 8 years old," explains a show insider. “They’re played by children and are very creepy!” Show creator Ryan Murphy has said these aren't your typical bloodthirsty fiends, though -- so don't expect Robert Pattinson in Twilight, or even old-school Dracula.

13 hours ago | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's scary how much information we're getting about American Horror Story: Hotel this week. (See what I did there?) The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly features a ton of pictures of the new season, plus they revealed more information than ever about the plot. Star Lady Gaga has been tweeting out pictures from her photo shoot, and one in particular unveils a shocking detail about her character: the Countess is a mother! We are family. Meet my magical children. Hotel #Ahs pic.twitter.com/t3FO9j1NHJ — Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 27, 2015 That's right, Lady Gaga's character has her own little monsters.

They're already terrifying. Related Stories: Ryan Murphy Confirms Jessica Lange »

Surprise! Ryan Murphy Confirms Jessica Lange Will Return to American Horror Story

14 hours ago | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Well, well, well. It appears Jessica Lange hasn't washed her hands clean of American Horror Story just yet. In addition to revealing a ton of new information about Hotel and the confirmation that season one's Murder House will appear on Hotel, the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly also contains a quote from Ryan Murphy about the (former) empress of his FX series. Lange, who has two Emmys and a Golden Globe for her performances on the show, announced her departure from American Horror Story at PaleyFest in March. Murphy talked about her decision to leave during the show's Summer TCA panel, but this is the first time he's confirmed her return. Here's the direct quote: "I've been talking to her. It's always possible. I'm trying to deal with her play schedule. Jessica is always about the character. She'll be back - she's not gone forever. But that's the fun and »

New Photos of Lady Gaga’s Character in American Horror Story: Hotel

14 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Lady Gaga's vampiric American Horror Story: Hotel character, The Countess, is featured in new photos from EW, one of which shows The Countess with her "brood of bloodsucking children."

Hot on the heels of unleashing their American Horror Story: Hotel photos yesterday, EW is back with a new batch (see below) focused on Lady Gaga as The Countess, "a glamorous but deadly creature who sustains on a healthy diet of sex and blood." One photo in particular that stands out shows The Countess sitting next to three blood-slurping children, who The Countess has "kidnapped / adopted."

With popularity for FX's American Horror Story continuing to rise, showrunner Ryan Murphy told EW that airing two seasons—one in the fall and one in the spring—in the timespan of one year in the near future (beginning in 2016) could possibly happen. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for more updates on American Horror Story: Hotel, »

Jessica Lange Isn’t Gone From American Horror Story Forever, Don’t Worry

15 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When Jessica Lange announced that she wouldn't be appearing in American Horror Story: Hotel, fans were distraught. She's been an integral part of the show since its inception, first appearing in a pivotal supporting role in Murder House and then taking the lead with bravado in Asylum. In Freak Show, she basically performed showstoppers exclusively, including her super-uncomfortable versions of David Bowie's "Life on Mars?" and Lana Del Rey's "Gods and Monsters." She's starring in the road-trip comedy Wild Oats this fall, opposite Shirley MacLaine and Demi Moore, and will return to Broadway next year for a revival of Long Day's Journey Into Night. But Lange isn't gone from American Horror Story for good. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, series creator Ryan Murphy said:  "It’s always possible. I’m trying to deal with her play schedule. Jessica is always about the character. She’ll be back—she’s not gone forever. »

American Horror Story: Ryan Murphy Says Jessica Lange’s “Not Gone Forever”

16 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

For the past four seasons of American Horror Story, there were a few guarantees: some genuine, terrifying scares; lots and lots of straight-up crazy (and sometimes downright confusing) plot developments; and an always electrifying performance from Ahs queen Jessica Lange. And while I’m sure we’ll still get the scares and the insanity that we’re used to with American Horror Story in its upcoming fifth season, titled Hotel, we won’t be getting any of Jessica Lange, as she decided to not return to the series for Season 5 to instead head back to  Broadway. However, just because we won’t see Lange at all in Hotel doesn’t mean we’ll never see her on American Horror Story again. In fact, series co-creator Ryan Murphy has promised that “she’ll be back” in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly. “I’ve been talking to her,” Murphy tells EW‘s Tim Stack. »

Lady Gaga Wore What to the "American Horror Story" Set on Her First Day?!

26 August 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Lady Gaga made quite an impression when she checked into "American Horror Story: Hotel." In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, show creator Ryan Murphy describes what the Mother Monster was wearing when she came to set. "She showed up, and she was wearing diamond pasties, a Band-Aid on her boo-ha, heels and a black veil that Alexander McQueen made for her on the day before his death," he tells the mag. "Then the crew gasped in delight, and we were off!" In fact, the singer's casting came about in a rather unconventional way after she wrote Murphy herself, asking if he'd ever consider using her in the show. He said "Yes" and the rest is history. "I was at a construction site and my phone rang. I didn’t recognize the number. [I answer and] I hear ‘Please hold for Gaga.’ I think ‘Bad Romance’ was playing [while I was on hold]," he explains. "Then she got on the phone. »

‘American Horror Story: Hotel’: First Look at Lady Gaga’s Countess and New Characters

26 August 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel” will open for business on Oct. 7, and as check-in time approaches, new details are starting to emerge about the many twisted characters who inhabit Ryan Murphy’s latest macabre playground.

Entertainment Weekly’s “Hotel” cover story sheds a little more light on Lady Gaga’s mysterious Countess, previously described by Murphy as a bisexual “wealthy social doyenne” who is “consumed with art and fashion and people, and she has a nefarious plan that is revealed in the first episode.”

According to EW, Gaga’s Countess — who owns the titular Hotel Cortez — sustains herself with a nutritious diet of sex and blood, but Murphy hesitates to call her (or her lovers, Matt Bomer’s Donovan and Finn Wittrock’s Tristan) vampires… “I prefer the term ‘ancient blood virus,'” he says. “It’s not vampires. It’s really a form of hemophilia in a way. »

October is fast-approaching, and that can only mean one thing: yes, another Paranormal Activity is primed to launch in theaters. Switching gears to the small screen, though, and Ryan Murphy’s popular anthology series will return with American Horror Story: Hotel, and today’s new batch of stills showcase the various stars checking in for what will surely be a retreat to remember – for better or worse.

Spotlighting recurring characters played by Evan Peters and Kathy Bates, while also drawing attention to newcomers Lady Gaga (real name Stefani Germanotta) and supermodel Naomi Campbell. Assembling under the roof of the Hotel Cortez, it is the former new addition to the cast who will play Countess, owner of the titular abode who also happens to be a vampire in all but name. According to Murphy, Gaga’s unpredictable character has been infected with an “ancient blood curse” and »

Confirmed! American Horror Story Season 5 Will Go to Season 1's Murder House

26 August 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

We have been dying for more connections between American Horror Story seasons, and it's just been confirmed that creator Ryan Murphy is going to give us a big one in season five, Hotel. In this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly, which has a trove of new season five details, there's a separate piece where Murphy confirms a direct connection between season one and five. Of course, it's the Murder House itself. "We do go to the Murder House for one episode," he said, and that's not all; a character from the first season - the Harmon family's realtor Marcy (Christine Estabrook) - also appears in season five. Recently, Murphy compared season one to season five, saying the new season would be about "honest, primal fear," but the other connection of it being set in Los Angeles is clearly the thread that will tie these two seasons together.

Lady Gaga returns to her dark roots in stunning 'Ahs: Hotel' reveal

26 August 2015 10:39 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Part of Lady Gaga's appeal is her tendency toward hyperbole, and she didn't disappoint on that front in her new interview with EW, which has unveiled the first official look at her "American Horror Story: Hotel" character the Countess (which, if you consider some of the costumes she's worn previously, actually ranks pretty far down the list of Mother Monster's most terrifying getups.) I've embedded the image below. “I’ve just been weeping while I’m here because I have returned to something I’ve believed in so much, which is the art of darkness,” Gaga told EW. “It’s not something that everyone understands, but, for the people that do — 'Horror Story' fans, my fans — there is a true connection between us, and it’s a language within itself.” As EW notes, over the last couple of years Gaga has been putting forth a more subdued image. »

Lea Michele on Finding Her Glee in ‘Scream Queens’

26 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After seven seasons on “Glee,” Lea Michele has taken on a decidedly different role in “Scream Queens,” as the glamour-challenged, neckbrace-wearing Hester who desperately just wants to fit in. No singing required!

How did you get cast?

Ryan called me in October when we were starting the final season of “Glee,” and he said I love you and I want us to keep working together and it will help the sad “Glee” transition so we never have to say goodbye. All he said was “Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, neckbrace.” And I said, “I’m in.” I had no idea what it was. I was so excited. I had to keep it quiet for a really long time. I thought it was maybe another season of “American Horror Story” that he was asking me to be a part of. It wasn’t until it was announced online that he told »

American Horror Story: A Ton of Bloody New Details Have Been Revealed!

26 August 2015 8:58 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

After months of devouring every detail about American Horror Story: Hotel, we just got a wealth of new information from Entertainment Weekly. Star Lady Gaga is on the cover of the latest issue, and there are a ton of new pictures. Both Gaga and Ryan Murphy were interviewed for the article, and they spilled on a few bloody details. Here's what we just learned about the residents of the creepy Hotel Cortez. Evan Peters will appear in flashbacks: While the majority of the character descriptions were unveiled during the show's Summer TCA panel, Peters was kept under wraps. EW confirmed that he is playing the "rich and charming but deeply psychotic" James March, who built the hotel in the 1930s. "The beautiful art-deco hotel is, in actuality, a labyrinthine structure built to hide March's murderous activities." Intriguing! There are vampires! Ok, Murphy doesn't like the term "vampire," so he's saying there's an "ancient blood virus. »
