Meet the Cast of American Horror Story: Hotel

29 March 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

While we know for sure that Jessica Lange will not be returning to American Horror Story for season five, we do know a few new members of the next installment of Ryan Murphy's horror anthology, which is themed Hotel. At the recent fan event PaleyFest, two new cast members were announced - two actors who have never been regular characters on the series before - and if you're familiar with Murphy's universe, you'll recognize both. Now, several actors whom Murphy has worked with for smaller parts on American Horror Story have been added. No one from Murphy's usual stable of actors has been announced yet, so stay tuned for more casting, and in the meantime, catch up on everything else we know about season five so far! »

Dear Indiana: If you're so antigay, why did you give us these gay icons?

27 March 2015 5:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Indiana's coolness took a south bend this week when Gov. Mike Pence signed into law a bill that allows businesses to turn away Lgbt customers on the grounds of "religious freedom." Sort of makes you wish that "not sucking" was a religion.  To remind Indiana lawmakers why their nonsense is, well, nonsense, let's take a look at some gay icons and iconography that originated in Indiana. If you're so concerned about protecting the hatred of gay people, why do these folks below rule so much?    Adam Lambert, our Precious Moments figurine version of George Michael The wailing "American Idol" runner-up came out in the most decadent way possible: with a Rolling Stone cover story and salacious serpentine imagery. Lambert was raised in Southern California but was born in Indianapolis, which basically makes him a living version of "Saved by the Bell."  "Let's Hear It for the Boy" queen Deniece Williams »

Say hello to Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens.

The creator of Fox’s upcoming comedy-horror anthology series on Wednesday tweeted a picture of his leading ladies, Jamie Lee Curtis and Lea Michele, together on set — and we’ve got a few questions.

For example, what’s up with Michele’s dated windbreaker? Unless the former Glee star is going though a retro fashion phase, could this be a hint that Scream Queens is going to be set in the ’80s or ’90s? It’s no secret »

The Mindy Project Recap: Parental Advisory

24 March 2015 8:05 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Peter’s wedding is finally here, and he’s back in New York! It’s not super clear why, except that he’s looking for a new best man — Pube tried to kiss him at the bachelor party, and things got awkward. He’s there to ask Mindy to be the best man, even though he could have done that via phone or electronic means, and even though Danny does not care for the gender reversal one bit. As he says, “Thanks a lot, Ryan Murphy.” Sir, that is the least of Ryan Murphy’s sins.We’ve talked a lot here about the looooong delay in ever meeting Mindy’s parents, so much so that — not just because of us, personally, but the collective internet — their absence becomes A Thing in this episode. They’re now moving to India for a year and having a going-away party in Boston. »

Chloe Sevigny Joins American Horror Story Hotel

24 March 2015 7:05 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

More fresh-ish faces are jumping onboard with Chloe Sevigny for American Horror Story: Hotel. She is the latest star to become attache after the big shake up with casting was announced a week or so ago. Chloe who is known as the bad wife on Big Love did play a nymphomaniac on their American Horror Story: Asylum season. Like most of her co-stars, not much has been addressed about how or where they will fit in on the show yet. We expect we will find out more in the late summer of this year.

I am glad that Chloe is returning back to TV. It will be different seeing her in this role as I am used to her Big Love style character. However, it is good to see her expand her wings and remind the world that she can play someone other than that trademark character. After all, we »

'American Horror Story' Season 5 Gets Chloe Sevigny

24 March 2015 3:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that Emmy-winning actress Jessica Lange will not be back for Season 5 of American Horror Story, which we reported in January will be called American Horror Story: Hotel. Over the past week, series creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed two new casting additions through his official Twitter page, Chlo&#235 Sevigny and Wes Bentley. Of course, no character details were given at this time.

Both actors have appeared on previous seasons of American Horror Story. Chlo&#235 Sevigny starred in Season 2, American Horror Story: Aslyum, as Briarcliff Aslyum's Shelly, a nymphomaniac who was committed by her husband. Wes Bentley portrayed Edward Mordrake, a two-faced ghost who collected the souls of tortured carnival performers in Season 4, American Horror Story: Freak Show. They join a cast that also includes Lady Gaga, Matthew Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson.

Aside from the American Horror Story: Hotel title, very little is known about Season »

Connie Britton joins Ryan Murphy’s O.J. Simpson series American Crime Story

24 March 2015 1:08 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Writer/director Ryan Murphy and Connie Britton must have enjoyed working together on American Horror Story because the duo are collaborating again on his upcoming Ahs companion series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Last night Murphy tweeted the news saying, “Excited to announce my friend Connie Britton will play Faye Resnick” in the first season of his upcoming, highly-anticipated true crime miniseries. If you can remember that far back, Resnick was a friend of Nicole Brown Simpson who, as a result of her reported drug-related debts, became involved in the case when O.J.’s defense team argued they prompted hit men to murder Simpson and Goldman.

Britton is now the second American Horror Story vet, along with Sarah Paulson (to play Marcia Clark), to join the show. Also onboard for the series are David Schwimmer playing Simpson’s good friend and attorney Robert Kardashian, Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran, »

Chloe Sevigny Returns To American Horror Story For Season 5

24 March 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems as though the next season of Ryan Murphy’s FX anthology series American Horror Story is accruing cast members at an alarming rate. The last week alone has witnessed the departure of fan favorite Jessica Lange, whose four season stint has finally reached its end, and the arrival of Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson and Wes Bentley.

Those three newcomers all made brief appearances on the show in the past, and have since been bumped up to starring roles. It seems as if Murphy is intent on mining previous seasons for cast members, as today brings news that Chloe Sevigny has signed on to appear in American Horror Story‘s fifth season – Hotel.

The actress made her first appearance in the show during its second season, Asylum. A brief guest-starring role, her arc as Shelley the nymphomaniac turned – as most things often do in Ahs – ugly pretty quickly. She »
