Angela Bassett, Matt Bomer & More Discuss Their American Horror Story: Hotel Characters


We’re just a couple of months away from the premiere of American Horror Story: Hotel. After last year’s disappointing Freak Show, I’m optimistic Ryan Murphy will rebound with the fifth season. He’s off to a great start by corralling a fantastic group of returning alums and newbies. He had me at Lady Gaga and then sealed the deal with Naomi Campbell.

Several of the cast sat down with TV Guide to discuss their characters. Angela Bassett, Finn Wittrock, Cheyenne Jackson, Kathy Bates, Matt Bomer are just a few who divulge juicy tidbits about the upcoming season. Check out the videos below. AHS: Hotel premieres Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 10/9c on FX.
