IBTimes has posted a full rundown of all the main actors and their roles in the upcoming 5th season of American Horror Story, which bears the subtitle “Hotel”. However, it should be completely noted that this breakdown comes from an IMDb list created by acrazey57, who seemingly loves to create “dream casts” that are in no way confirmed by the actual production.
The 100% confirmed list of actors so far is Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lady Gaga, Chloë Sevigny, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson.
Fan favorite Jessica Lange confirmed that she will not be in further American Horror Story seasons. “Yes, I’m done,” she told the PaleyFest audience. “We’ve had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I’ve had the opportunity to play. In all the madness, I’ve loved the writers, my actors, Ryan and the whole, I mean, insanity of it, shooting here, shooting in New Orleans, the stories, everything.”
