Make your reservations now. Mother Monster is ready to check you in.
Apparently, the fifth season of the popular horror anthology is American Horror Story: Hotel. Not only that, but Lady Gaga has snagged a series regular role. The 28-year-old made the announcement in a video teaser via Twitter.
This marks Gaga’s biggest acting gig to date. She’s previously made minor appearances in such films like Machete Kills, Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For and Men in Black 3.
The “Bad Romance” singer is clearly re-inventing herself these days. From classing it up with Tony Bennett, stunning the entire world with her Oscars performance and now this. It’s definitely a far cry from the same woman who once wore a meat dress. Check out the announcement below which could’ve easily been taken from her Fame era.
If you haven’t watched American Horror Story yet, now is the time. The latest anthology is killing it, giving the FX show its highest ratings to date. Also, the watercooler buzz is hotter than effort mostly in part to the fabulous trinity of Jessica Lange, Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates. These three women are some badass witches, especially Bassett. My eyes light up every time she comes on screen. You can tell she’s having loads of fun playing voodoo queen Marie Laveau.
It’s no surprise Entertainment Weekly put them on their cover. American Horror Story: Coven is a phenomenon. The issue which includes exclusive interviews with Lange, Bates, and Bassett, plus AHS mainstays Sarah Paulson, Frances Conroy and Denis O’Hare hits newsstands this Friday. Also in the publication, Ryan Murphy reveals his dream cast list for future seasons of AHS and what’s in store for the rest of this season of Coven.
If you’re watching American Horror Story: Coven, you’re fully aware there’s a lot of estrogen this season. Given the witches theme, it’s only natural. Thankfully, Ryan Murphy’s obsession for working with hot studs has benefitted us once again.
Prior to joining AHS: Coven, Alexander Dreymon only has a handful of credits. One of those credits happens to a BBC film called Christopher and his Kind where he played a gay hooker. In the scene below, Dreymon flexes his biceps and gets hot and heavy with another guy who happens to be Matt Smith of Doctor Who fame. Watch the two create sexy magic below.
Are you enjoying Jessica Lange as the wickedly delicious Fiona on American Horror Story: Coven? Better enjoy it while you can. The 64-year-old Oscar-winning actress revealed to Los Angeles Times that she only has one more season of the FX series in her. It’s part of her five-year plan to leave show business altogether.
“I am coming to the end of acting,” she reveals. “I have a list: another stage production, maybe one or two more movies, one more season of ‘American Horror Story’ … and then that is it for me. Because I think that’s enough. I want to go out with a bang … or should I say, a scare?”
Television viewers were bewitched by the third iteration of American Horror Story. The witch-themed season conjured up 5.54 million total viewers and 3.87 million viewers in the adults 18-49 demo, easily the best performance for the AHS franchise. That number represents a whopping 44 percent increase in overall viewers when compared to last year’s American Horror Story: Asylum.
In addition, it beat NBC’s Ironside handily and came close to ABC’s Nashville. However, the 3.5 rating for 18-34 adults topped all programming in primetime. Take that, broadcast networks. When final Live+7 day data rolls in, American Horror Story: Coven could be the most-watched program in FX history.
Did you watch last night’s premiere? Without spoiling too much for those who haven’t seen it, how much would it suck to have Taissa Farmiga’s powers? Not fun at all, especially for some of you sluts out there ;) And can we take about that rape scene?
On the completely other spectrum, we have this season’s second casualty. Find out what show joins Lucky 7 as this season’s latest cancellation.
With the premiere of American Horror Story: Coven just around the corner, FX amped up the promo push this week. The network uploaded more teasers and the main title sequence, pleasing fans to the nth degree. With these newly-released character posters, I’m sure they’re in even more of a frenzied state. Jessica Lange looks absolutely spellbinding above. Check out Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Emma Roberts and more below. Be sure to catch the premiere of AHS: Coven on October 9, 2013.
Can it just be October 9 already tomorrow? Waiting for American Horror Story: Coven to premiere is getting harder by the day, especially with FX promoting it like crazy. In the past couple days, the network debuted three more teasers, along with the main title sequence.
“Here it is! The sexy scary main title for AHS: Coven,” Murphy tweeted on Wednesday. “Can you spot the clues?”
I wonder what clues he’s referring about. Is it something in the assortment of spooky imagery? Or does it have something to do with the fact that two big names are conspicuously missing from the title sequence.
Returning AHS players Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Francis Conroy, Lily Rabe, Denis O’Hare and Jessica Lange, as well as newbies Emma Roberts and Kathy Bates are all included but both Angela Bassett and Gabourey Sidibe’s names aren’t featured. Hmmmmm, what’s up with that? Given that voodoo plays a major part in the upcoming series and that Bassett plays voodoo priestess Marie Laveau, it’s definitely a head-scratcher. Check it out below, along with the “Voodoo“, “Witchwalk,” and “Laveau” teasers.
School is officially in session! With Jessica Lange as your teacher, you best be on your best behavior. Based on the new American Horror Story: Coven promo, she’s one big bad ass witch.
FX just dropped another video, but this one actually features footage from the upcoming spellbinding season. Along with Lange, we see glimpses of Angela Bassett as voodoo queen Marie Laveau and Kathy Bates as serial killer Madame LaLaurie.
The third season of the spooky series has a lot to live up to. Heading into this weekend’s Emmys, American Horror Story: Asylum leads the pack with 17 nominations. Even though season three is a war of the witches, expect to see a lighter tone than previous years. Along with the drama, there will also be lots of humor. American Horror Story: Coven premieres October 9 at 10 p.m. on FX. Check out the promo below.
