Fresh from her show-stopping performance of The Sound of Music at the Academy Awards, Lady Gaga has revealed she is joining the fifth season of American Horror Story.
Gaga, real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, tweeted the news, along with the reveal it will be titled American Horror Story: Hotel.
Gaga will make her series regular acting debut on the anthology series, becoming the first confirmed casting.
As the Hollywood Reporter notes, Jessica Lange has repeatedly said that season four — Freak Show — would likely be her last; co-star Sarah Paulson is set to star as Marcia Clark in Murphy’s FX anthology American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson; and Emma Roberts is poised to star in FOX’s horror comedy anthology Scream Queens alongside Glee‘s Lea Michele. Two-time co-star Taissa Farmiga (Murder House, Coven) recently signed on to co-star in ABC’s anthology, L.A. Crime. Kathy Bates, meanwhile, is expected to return for season five.
Anthology is da word….
