It’s time to freak out. Matt Bomer will officially be in American Horror Story season five, along with Lady Gaga. He confirmed the news at PaleyFest on March 15!
Matt Bomer may or may not be playing Lady Gaga‘s love interest in American Horror Story: Hotel! The actor shocked the audience at PaleyFest’s final night in LA, bringing him out onstage, along with Cheyenne Jackson!
Matt Bomer Joins ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’
Matt, 37, is taking a break from Magic Mike to work once again with Ryan Murphy!
“I love collaborating with Ryan Murphy,” he said during PaleyFest, but couldn’t really talk much about his role. Of course, we wall wanted to know if he’d be working a lot with Gaga.
“I can’t confirm nor deny that there will be a romantic relationship with her,” he said — which we can hope is a yes. He also admitted he hasn’t met Gaga yet and actually wasn’t even sure of her real name (it’s Stefani Germanotta, by the way).
He has previously worked with Murphy on Freak Show (as a prostitute), Glee and on HBO’s The Normal Heart.
Cheyenne was brought out onto stage after Matt, and as also worked with Ryan before, on Glee. He was Dustin Goolsby, the coach of Vocal Adrenaline in season two.
“About 6 months ago, [Ryan] talked to me and I said it’s my absolute favorite show on television,” he said, admitting it definitely was nerve racking. “I’m really, really excited… I’m absolutely nervous, but I’m really excited.”
Basically this proves one thing — no one who knows better says no to Ryan Murphy! Why would they? AHS: Hotel is set to begin in October 2015. It’s a busy year for Ryan who is also working on his new show Scream Queens. We can assume that Emma Roberts will be going back and forth between the two, as she’s already begun filming Scream Queens (and is featured in the new trailer).
Are you excited for Matt Bomer ins AHS: Hotel, HollywoodLifers?
