‘American Horror Story: Hotel:’ Casting Update

Another star is checking in “American Horror Story: Hotel” and this one is going to be a series regular.

Wes Bentley has just joined the cast of “AHS: Hotel.” We’ve seen his recurring role in “American Horror Story: Freak Show” when he played Edward Mordrake and this time around, he’s not only going to play a recurring role but he’s officially in to be a part of the upcoming season of the anthology series.


Showrunner, Ryan Murphy announced Bentley’s addition to the cast, “Thrilled to announce Wes Bentley will be a series regular on ‘AHS:Hotel.’”

He joins other cast members such as Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson. However, Jessica Lange has just checked out of the show and won’t return this season while Kathy Bates will return while Evan Peters hinted that it is very likely that he will be back as well during the PaleyFest.

We’ve seen Bentley in his role in “American Beauty” and he has also starred in “The Hunger Games” and “Interstellar.”

The story about “AHS: Hotel” is still being kept under wraps but we are dying to know what’s it going to be about! For sure, it’s going to be dark and freaky, just how “AHS” fans want it. Production starts this summer while it will premiere around October this year (2015).

“American Horror Story: Hotel” comes with 13 episodes.
