‘American Horror Story’: Ryan Murphy Wants Lady Gaga for Season 6

FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel” hasn’t premiered yet, but that hasn’t stopped co-creator Ryan Murphy from asking star Lady Gaga to return for more screen time.

On Tuesday, he Tweeted a plea for the musician to return to the series, writingLady Gaga is so brilliant in AHS Season 5 that yesterday I officially asked her to join Season 6. Say yes @ladygaga!”

Murphy may be biased, but he’s not the only one who thinks the casting helped this chapter in the anthology series.

“Whatever the shortcomings, the extraordinarily well-timed addition of Gaga to the mix should render any naysaying moot, practically speaking, establishing this as a sort-of event that plenty of people will feel obligated to check out (or in),” writes Variety TV columnist Brian Lowry. “Viewed that way, Gaga’s primary role is to help bait the hook, at one point describing the hotel to an outsider by purring, ‘Maybe this place is special.'”

This news all may seem premature, however. FX has confirmed that neither it nor Murphy have made any official statements regarding the next installment of “American Horror Story.” The anthology was renewed last year a few days after its fourth chapter, “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” became the most-watched telecast in the network’s history.
