Matt opened up about joining Ryan Murphy back when he guest starred on the Freak Show season. “I love collaborating with Ryan Murphy.” He pointed out that arriving to New Orleans, “was amazing – when you showed up on set it was like arriving at this community and it felt like this world where there was no boundaries. I had the time of my life and i told Ryan that, He said, ‘Great, do you want to come work next season? And I said, ‘Hell, yes.'”
Bomer isn’t the only one that will join American Horror Story with Lady Gaga. Cheyenne Jackson, who had an arc on Glee at one point, will also join American Horror Story: Hotel. As of right now no one knows what Jackson’s role is either, or what the season might entail, but if going by Murphy’s track record with AHS we can expect it to be good.
