“American Horror Story: Hotel” fans are getting a peek at who is checking into TV’s scariest residence with the first trailer for the series premiering Oct. 3 on FX.
The first full cast promo shows the latest installment of Ryan Murphy’s anthology series has just as many creepy characters as in past seasons. “American Horror Story: Hotel” cast members include Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley, Chloë Sevigny, Denis O’Hare, Cheyenne Jackson, Evan Peters and Finn Wittrock.
Murphy is co-creator, showrunner, executive producer, writer and director while Brad Falchuk is co-creator, executive producer and writer.
Here are the actors and characters I was able to recognize in the new trailer, with info about each culled from various reports.
Lady Gaga as the Countess
The owner of the Hotel Cortez apparently loves the taste of blood.
Matt Bomer as Donovan
He’s the Countess’s lover and cohort in the drinking of blood—reportedly until she dumps him for another hottie.
Kathy Bates as Iris
Donovan’s mother runs the hotel and has a deep feud with Sally.
Sarah Paulson as Hypodermic Sally
The drug addict lives in the hotel and is a rival to Iris.
Angela Bassett as Ramona Royale
The actress doesn’t live in the hotel, but spends a lot of time there hanging with her bestie, the Countess.
Evan Peters as James March
He created the Hotel Cortez in the 1930s and although long dead, still haunts the halls.
Cheyenne Jackson as Will Drake
The New York fashion designer and his young son take up residence at the hotel.
Finn Wittrock as Tristan
The model moves in to follow Will Drake, but becomes the Countess’s lover.
Chloe Sevigny and Wes Bentley
Sevigny plays pediatrician Alex Lowe and Bentley stars as her husband, Detective John Lowe. The Lowes are dealing with the disappearance of their 6-year-old son. John checks into the hotel with his family in hopes of finding a killer.
That’s what I could get from the clip. What did I miss?
