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

“Who gets to stand for something and still make people laugh and feel something at the same time?” said “Glee” star Alex Newell on the carpet at Saturday night’s Family Equality Council awards dinner at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The answer? The casts of “Glee” and “Modern Family,” both honored at the event for doing just that.

At the 11th annual awards dinner, the Family Equality Council honored the two series for their impact in advancing cultural conversation about Lgbtq (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender questioning) families, and also paid tribute to Mayor Annise Parker of Houston, Texas, and the brand Honey Maid, for their “This Is Wholesome” campaign.

Sandra Bernhard hosted the event, opening the evening with a performance alongside her band, and telling stories riffing on her daughter. The dinner – part fundraiser, part celebration – shed light on Lgbtq families and the work being done to grant them »

Evan Peters on 'Lazarus Effect,' 'Age of Ultron,' and What He Won't Do in His Next Movie (Exclusive)

26 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Evan Peters knows a thing or two about scaring you silly.

Peters has been a regular cast member of "American Horror Story" since it's groundbreaking first season, playing (in short order) a high school psychopath, an insane asylum inmate (who had a close encounter with extraterrestrials, mutants, and a serial killer), a frat-boy Frankenstein monster, and, most recently, a freak-show performer with lobster claws for hands. Scary right?

Well in this week's "The Lazarus Effect," the latest production by "Paranormal Activity" and "Insidious" mastermind Jason Blum, Peters is back in the oogey-boogey business, this time playing a grad student who is working, along with Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass, and Donald Glover, on a top secret project that could bring people back from the dead. What could go wrong, right? Riiiiiight.

American Horror Story season 5: Lady Gaga to star, hotel theme

26 February 2015 1:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The next American Horror Story will be ‘Hotel’ and will star the trendy pop musician Lady Gaga

As you probably guessed from the title of the article you just clicked on, Lady Gaga is set to star in American Horror Story’s latest instalment, dubbed American Horror Story: Hotel.

It couldn’t have come at a better time, in terms of audience good will, seeing as Lady Gaga won over a whole lot of film and TV fans with her performance at the 87th Academy Awards on Sunday night. Her Sin City: A Dame To Kill For appearance helped her geek credibility levels, too.

Little else is known of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s next season of American Horror Story, but we can assume that the levels of hotel-themed horror will be a little worse than a lack of fried bread on the breakfast menu.

As is expected from the secretive show, »

Lady Gaga Becomes Scream Queen For ‘American Horror Story’

25 February 2015 11:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Season Five of blood-soaked saga American Horror Story has booked its most high-profile cast member yet, as peculiar pop phenomenon Lady Gaga joins the cast.

Series co-creator Ryan Murphy is a huge fan of the controversial artist, whose infamous meat-based dress alone earmarked her for such a role. Details of the part are yet to be revealed, but Gaga herself announced her involvement in a typically unusual Tweet-fuelled video:

Make your reservation now. #GagaAHSHotel https://t.co/o9ixi5TaFy

Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) February 25, 2015

The upcoming run is subtitled Hotel and follows the show’s tradition of launching a different storyline each time featuring the same actors. However, Murphy has disclosed the narratives are interconnected – apparently the events of the new run were hinted at in Season Four, so presumably these tales of terror will be drawn together at some point.

Though she’s appeared in movies such as Sin City 2, »

'American Horror Story' Season 5 Gets Lady Gaga and a Title

25 February 2015 10:52 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just days after her tribute to The Sound of Music at the Oscar awards, pop sensation Lady Gaga revealed on her Twitter page today that she will star in Season 5 of FX's American Horror Story, which has been given the official title American Horror Story: Hotel. Lady Gaga is the first cast member to be confirmed for this season, although no official details were given for the plot line. A brief video posted by the singer/actress also reveals the show will be back some time this October.

The big question that remains is if Emmy winner Jessica Lange will return to the show. The actress has long said that Season 4 will be her last, but neither her exit nor return have been confirmed by FX. Series creator Ryan Murphy did reveal last month that Season 5 will mark "an unusually large reinvention" of the series.

Lady Gaga takes role on American Horror Story

25 February 2015 9:59 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The mother monster will feature in the next season of the ailing horror franchise. Will their combined talents result in a career resurrection – or sudden death?

She calls her fans little monsters, and now Lady Gaga is going to be the biggest monster of them all on the next season of FX’s horror anthology show American Horror Story. There are no details other than the fact that Gaga will be a series regular for the show’s fifth season when it returns in the fall (Ahs usually premieres around Halloween).

We don’t know the theme of the season – though a series of top hats series co-creator Ryan Murphy planted in season four serve as clues that it might have something to do with infamous alien site Area 51 – but we do know that it will be set in the present day and it will be the first without Jessica Lange »
