Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, Wes Bentley Join ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’

Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson have been cast in “American Horror Story: Hotel,” joining the previously announced Lady Gaga in the next season of FX’s anthology series.

The cast of “AHS” made the announcement at the end of its Paleyfest panel. The plot details of their characters are being kept under wraps, with Bomer playing one of the leads.

“I love collaborating with Ryan Murphy,” said Bomer. “It feels like this world where there are no bounds.”

Update, 3/17: Creator Ryan Murphy announced via Twitter that Wes Bentley will also join the cast of “Hotel” as a series regular.

Bomer previously guest starred on the “Freak Show” season of the series. He could neither confirm nor deny any romantic relationship between he and Gaga’s character.

Bomer also worked with “AHS” creator Murphy on his shows “The New Normal” and “Glee,” where Bomer played Darren Criss’ character’s older brother, as well as HBO’s “Normal Heart,” for which Bomer won a Golden Globe.

Jackson has also worked with Murphy, guest starring on “Glee.” He also appeared in “30 Rock” and films “Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks” and “United 93.”

Bentley previously appeared on “Freak Show” as Edward Mordrake. He’s best known for his roles in “The Hunger Games” and “American Beauty” and is currently filming Disney’s “Pete’s Dragon” remake.

Also on the PaleyFest panel, Jessica Lange confirmed she wouldn’t be returning for the next installment of the horror franchise.

American Horror Story: Hotel,” produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television, will begin production on the 13-episode season in the late summer and premiere on FX in October.
