Sadly, the goddess that is Jessica Lange is indeed leaving "American Horror Story" and won't be joining the crew for round five in "Hotel."
With a "Yes, I'm done," Jessica confirmed her departure while at PaleyFest on Sunday, adding that she loved playing her four characters in "Murder House," "Asylum," "Coven" and "Freak Show."
However, it was also announced that "White Collar" star Matt Bomer and "30 Rock" alum Cheyenne Jackson will be added to the "Hotel" cast, which already includes Lady Gaga. The actors told the PaleyFest audience they couldn't confirm or deny any details on their characters since they apparently don't know yet themselves. Matt was a guest star on "Freak Show," so maybe this puts him squarely in the group of AHS regulars.
"AHS: Hotel" is meant to premiere its 13-episode season in October. Will you check out without Jessica Lange, or continue to watch these guys and Gaga in action?
