FX's horror anthology series, American Horror Story, doesn't return until this October, but the first casting announcement might catch you off-guard. While the series is known for bringing back many of the core cast members, the initial casting comes in the form of . . . Lady Gaga? That, I imagine will excite some of you and terrify the rest. In either case, the casting decision works! Gaga has taken minor roles in feature films (SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, MACHETE KILLS), but she is expected to take up a starring role in season 5 of American Horror Story: Hotel. You can check out her casting announcement done via her Twitter page below!

Aside from some catchy pop tunes, I never really thought much about Lady Gaga before. However, you'll have to lump me in with the group of people who were pleasently surprised with her SOUND OF MUSIC performance at this year's Academy Awards. If she can act as well as she sings, I think she'll fit into American Horror Story quite nicely.

American Horror Story: Hotel will air this October.

She owned it!

I'm down. She isn't terrible... Just give her a chance.

I like Lady Gaga when she uses that natural Sound of Music voice. She used to sing under her real name but nobody liked her because she was too classical. Then she turned pop and exploded.

When she is in front of a piano, no vocal effects or anything and just sings, she has an amazing voice (her Oscars SoM show proved that).

As for her acting, if Ryan Murphy can get me to like Emma Roberts than anything is possible.

This is going to be set in present day. It is supposedly going back to basics for the series and has something to do with "Black Hat". Be it a project Black Hat or something else, that is all Ryan Murphy has teased so far.

A story about a clogged toilet could be good, if done right.

This show ceases to surprise me anymore

Seasons 1 and 2 were good, Season 3 was absolutely terrible, and Season 4 was okay at best. A hotel setting can be exciting if done right, but then again, so could a freak show but that ending up being more comedic than horrifying. I really wish this show struck the right balance between campy and horrific like it did in the first two seasons. Here's hoping Gaga won't be a mockery of herself and won't be singing too many musical numbers that this show has plagued viewers with recently.

It can only go up

Last season was terrible...such a great opportunity blown. Hopefully, Gaga will be brought on to showcase her acting skills. We are going to get musical numbers, it goes without saying. It better not be her singing all the time because that is what killed this season. Bring out her weirdness and make her play someone really good. I am hesitant but willing to give her a chance

I'll withhold judgement on her acting until I see the show

but I was also pleasantly surprised at how well she sang at the Oscars - she was no Julie Andrews but then again, who is?

From what I can tell this show's main demo is women and gay dudes, so it's probably a really smart move on their part.

A hotel???

I'll reserve judgment until it premieres, but this show has been downhill since season 2... Season 1 was a breath of fresh air, really good psycho-sexual horror. Season 2 was like they threw everything they could think of at it, just a little bit of an overload(they should have just done aliens in a different season for example) and there was way too much going on(asylum shit, nazi experiments, abductions, exorcisms, serial killers, etc.). Season 3 was kind of boring compared to the others,

Season 3 was kind of boring compared to the others, but still some good performances from the actresses involved. But season 4 was a mess, most of the characters were uninteresting and it was a lot of mini mediocre stories instead of 1 over arching good story, Dandy was the only thing that kept me watching—that guy was pretty good. But a hotel? It doesn't exactly inspire much... but we'll see

Even though I think the show is way overrated, I like the fact that the setting will be in a hotel this time around.
