Another Ryan Murphy alum is reportedly in talks to check in to the hotel — and we basically couldn’t be more excited.
Darren Criss, who rose to fame on Ryan Murphy‘s Glee is now in talks to join Ryan’s new show, American Horror Story: Hotel, and since the cast is already so incredible, this is just the cherry on top. He reportedly will join on the Halloween episode (isn’t every week a Halloween episode?)
Darren is in talks to play the role of Justin, a hipster in Silver Lake, E! is reporting. The character will check in to the hotel with his girlfriend to get away for Halloween, but is too demanding for the head of the hotel — that’s right, Kathy Bates. Can you imagine a scene of Kathy taking down Darren? I mean, yes please.
The cast of this season is already completely stacked with alum from Ryan’s other seasons of AHS, as well as his other shows. AHS‘ previous cast members, Sarah Paulson (Hypodermic Sally), Matt Bomer (Donovan), Angela Bassett, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters (Mr. March), Wes Bentley, Kathy Bates (Iris) and Finn Wittrock have joined, plus Glee‘s Cheyenne Jackson, and newcomer to the show, Lady Gaga. Needless to say, we can expect a lot of craziness this time around.
From the very little that we know from this season, we do know that most everyone is a bad character this season — which obviously makes us really happy. This season will also have a lot more Easter eggs. “Things are connected,” Ryan said at SDCC. “This season, you’ll see more and more and more of that. Characters from previous seasons will come check into the hotel.”
We can not wait for this season — are you excited, HollywoodLifers? Do you want Darren to join? Let us know!
