Creator Ryan Murphy tweeted that New Girl’s Max Greenfield has joined the cast. Greenfield is best known as the zany, neurotic Schmidt on New Girl, but Murphy promises that we’ll see the actor in a completely new light.
As for more new blood joining the series, in February, it was announced that singer-songwriter Lady Gaga had joined the cast, marking her major television series debut. Then, at Paley Fest in March, White Collar star Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson announced that they would be joining AHS: Hotel. Bomer had a guest stint duringFreak Show and Cheyenne had previously worked with Ryan Murphy as a guest star on Glee.
Later that month, Chloe Sevigny announced that she would be returning to the series, after last being seen in season two’s Asylum. Other returning stars include Angela Basset, Kathy Bates, and Wes Bentley. Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will also be returning, marking their fifth appearance on the show.
