Also during the PaleyFest panel, Lange confirmed her decision to not partake in the fifth season, telling the crowd, “Yes, I’m done.” She added: “We’ve had a great run here. I mean, I absolutely loved doing these four characters” in the original/Murder House,

BEST NEWS EVER!!!!!!!! Really missed him since White Collar ended. Hope it’s for more than one episode this time. Just got that much more excited for the upcoming season. :)
refreshing to see new faces. i love sarah paulson and jessica lange but I’m starting to get tired of seeing them play characters who pretty much have the same intentions as the ones they played before.
I agree. I think that Jessica Lange is one of the finest actresses out there but it seemed that the only difference between some of her characters was the accent. She actually made some of the characters much more nuanced than they were written because she is such a brilliant actress but a woman can only do so much.
Fresh blood, especially the fresh blood of Bomer, should infuse the show with some needed new energy. I just hope that Lady Gaga doesn’t eff it all up.
I’m sorry to hear Matt Bomer has sunk to the depths of AHS, the most disturbing show on television. I’ve never watched the show and I won’t now even with Bomer.
American “HORROR” Story. It’s supposed to be disturbing.
I’ve always thought that Two and a Half Men was the most disturbing show on television.
So, you have never watched the show, and yet you think its the most disturbing show on television?
All rightee, then. That makes sense. Really.
I have never watched this show. Not even a preview of it. BUT, I might have to tune in at least once, just to see how they handle Matt Bomer’s personality in conjunction with a HORROR story…He played Neal Caffrey so perfectly and with such natural good humor that I am curious about what kind of character they will have him portray…unless all that good humor was just really excellent acting…I am curious how adorable dimples fit into a horror story.
Bomer, Jackson, and Gaga!? Is this hotel set in Fire Island?
I am very excited by this news. I think it’s crucial for the show to switch things up at this point. Even though everyone seemed to hate Freak Show, it was personally my favorite season. However, I did get the feeling that a lot of it felt like fan service from season 3. Essentially the entire cast returned (with the all-star cast they have, that’s not necessarily a bad thing), it was shot very similarly (again, not a bad thing), and had a lot of the same sort of writing style as the third season. This didn’t make the season bad (as I stated before, it was my favorite), but I did feel like it shared too much with season 3 (my least favorite season), which left me with a bad taste in my mouth. For a show like this to work, things need to drastically change each season, and the casting and theming so far indicates that this is very much the case for this season. I am so very excited for one of my favorite shows to come back, and this news just makes me anticipate it even more :)
Crap now I have to find time to watch this show
I really, really hope Finn Wittrock will be in this cast, also. He made Dandy the best part of Freak Show, IMHO.
I couldn’t agree more. Dandy was awesome!!!! Now every time I see Finn Whittcock in anything I always yell “Dandy”, LOL.
Did you ever see Normal Heart on HBO? He gave a heartbreaking performance (actually everyone involved with NH was superb). It was the first time I noticed him and then he showed up on AHS.
No!! I’ll miss Lange… Wish she would’ve done a small role at least
So happy about this! Love Matt and Gaga! Really looking forward to this.
Ryan Murphy always takes care of the people he works with and keeps bringing them back for other roles.
I’ll miss Jessica terribly. It just won’t be the same without her. My hope is that they can lure her back when they reach the final season. We know all the seasons are connected, so it wouldn’t be right to end it without her.
Anyone hope Ryan Murphy adds Jessalyn Gilsig to this cast? He used her on both Nip Tuck and Glee. Would love to see her iN AHS.
She’d be fun. I think Anjelica Huston would be an interesting choice as well.
I thought about the following actresses: Glenn Close, Annette Benning or Michelle Pfeiffer. I know Glenn and Annette would knock it out of the park but I thought it would be great to see Michelle out of her comfort zone. I think she would surprise everyone and that is a good thing.
Ryan Murphy should add Linda Gray to the cast. She would be perfect in the AHS series.
I am very happy that Matt Bomer going to join the cast of American Horror Story! season 5 should be quite interesting. Along with Lady Gaga as well!
