Angela Bassett Will Be A Troublemaker In American Horror Story: Hotel


Another former alum has snagged a role in American Horror Story: Hotel. Ryan Murphy revealed Angela Bassett is the latest addition to the star-studded cast. Her AHS hat trick is now complete after appearing in Coven and Freak Show.

The 56-year-old actress joins previously confirmed cast members Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Chloe Sevigny, Wes Bentley, and Cheyenne Jackson. I wonder which former alum is next.

Exact details about her role for this iteration haven’t been revealed, but Murphy teased she’ll “be making lots of trouble with Lady Gaga in the ballroom and elsewhere.” Sounds fantastic. AHS: Hotel can’t come here soon enough. Hopefully, the FX show rebounds after last season’s disappointing Freak Show. Don’t you agree? Weigh in below.

    ARTPOP’s legacy will be not having any mainstream hit singles, but I think the album as a whole is as good as Born This Way was. I’ve seen some incredible performances of “Mary Jane Holland”, “Manicure” and “Donatella”. It’s really a shame that Gaga didn’t collaborate with Aguilera in the beginning, because “Do What U Want” could have been amazing as an intended single rather than a desperate afterthought.

    “Applause” and “Do What U Want” are the only mainstream “hits” on this album. The rest of the album is just ok which was a let down for me as I’ve loved everything by her since “Just Dance”. She needs to make an amazing video for “Do What U Want” with Christina and then move on to something else. Maybe an EP of some new tracks?

    FX just saved themselves a lawsuit! So glad to have her back. And yes, I completely agree 🙂
