The handsome hunk Darren Criss is in talks! Darren Criss to check into American Horror Story: Hotel! Amazing isn’t it? The Glee veteran, who just wrapped an acclaimed run on Broadway in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, is set to join American Horror Story in the Halloween episode, for a recurring role. And Darren Criss will play a hipster in it!
Darren Criss is said to play Justin, a Silver Lake hipster who heads to the hotel on Halloween with his equally hip girlfriend to escape pesky trick-or-treaters. But after one too many room service demands, Kathy Bates’ character, the head of the hotel, gives Criss’ character a Halloween trick they will never forget.
The cast of American Horror Story: Hotel is already filled to the brim with talent. List includes of Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, Matt Bomer, Finn Wittrock, Angela Bassett, Cheyenne Jackson, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters, Wes Bentley and more other characters from previous seasons to pop up.
But that’s not it! Here’s what else we know about this season: Basically everybody is bad and Paulson has asked for her character to die since she’s never had an on-screen death on AHS. Lady Gaga’s character is into fashion and these are the names that are out there: Bomer is Donovan, Peters is Mr. March, Paulson is Hypodermic Sally and Bates is Iris.
“There’s not a whole lot of good guys, I won’t say—I don’t think I’m quite as malevolent as Dandy, but I’m definitely not a good guy,” Wittrock teased earlier this summer.
We all have to keep waiting till October as The American Horror Story: Hotel premieres this October on FX. So keep waiting till then for a good treat of entertainment ahead.
