Lady Gaga Joining the Cast of ‘American Horror Story’
Less than a week after dazzling her fans including the legendary Julie Andrews with her impeccable performance during the The Sound of Music tribute at the Oscars, Lady Gaga is making headlines again due to the confirmation by The Hollywood Reporter that the singer has been added to the cast of FX’s rotational series, American Horror Story.
Creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have managed to convince an impressive lineup of actresses including Jessica Lange, who may not be returning to reprise her role for the upcoming fifth season, Kathy Bates, and Angela Bassett.
Not much has been divulged about the role except that Gaga whose birth name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta will be a series regular which marks her first official foray into scripted television.
The singer has enjoyed a longstanding relationship with Murphy who is clearly a loyal fan based on the fact that he devoted an entire episode of Glee honoring Gaga’s most prized tunes, including “Bad Romance”, “Telephone”, and “Born This Way”.
It seems it’s time for her to return the favor, as she preps for her acting debut and continues to enjoy the success of her stint at the Oscars as well as her recent engagement to actor and model Taylor Kinney.
We will have to wait until later in the year to get a load of Gaga’ acting chops as Season five of American Horror Story is scheduled to return sometime in October.
