Sarah Paulson confirmed in American Horror Story: Hotel
SHE’S BACK! Sarah Paulson has signed on the dotted line to return to American Horror Story for the forthcoming fifth season, dubbed ‘Hotel’.
We’re so happy that Paulson has decided to return to American Horror Story… we had no doubts that she would.
It seems the casting for American Horror Story is stepping up a notch at the moment, as it was only last week that Murphy confirmed that Kathy Bates is returning to the show.
Paulson has had leading roles on American Horror Story for the past couple of seasons and has regularly been seen on-screen with Jessica Lange. This year, she is checking into the ‘hotel’ as the “baddest bad girl of them all” Oh it sounds good, doesn’t it?
Paulson is a seasoned actress and she has had some weird and wonderful roles thrown at her over the past few seasons of American Horror Story. During ‘Coven’, she got her eyes scooped out, and on the latest season, ‘Freak Show’ she actually played a two-headed woman.
It’ll be fantastic to see Paulson’s bad girl side come out to play during the forthcoming season. Sadly, we don’t know anything else about Paulson’s role on the show other than the news Murphy has provided us with.
Taking to his Twitter earlier this evening, he wrote: “Sarah Paulson is checking into ‘Hotel’. And this season, she’s the baddest bad girl of them all”.
As we have already mentioned, we know that Kathy Bates is returning to the show this year. Excitingly, Lady Gaga will be taking on one of the lead roles on American Horror Story this year, whilst Matt Bomer will take on the lead male role.
Sadly, Jessica Lange will not be starring on this year’s season of the show, and it isn’t very likely that we will see her appear on American Horror Story again. She did warn us last year that she was going to call it quits after ‘Freak Show’, but we were secretly hoping that Ryan Murphy would be able to work his magic on her and have her return. Sadly, that didn’t happen.
BUT… we are SO EXCITED to see how Lady Gaga gets on.
