Matt Bomer is looking forward to his second season on American Horror Story, and he’s especially excited about getting to stay at the same spooky hotel as Lady Gaga. In fact, he’s already begging Mama Monster to let him work with her again.
During a recent interview with ETonline, Matt Bomer talked about how gaga he is over Lady Gaga. The Magic Mike XXL star and the “Marry the Night” singer will soon be checking into American Horror Story: Hotel, and Bomer teased that they’re going to have a blast playing their characters.
“I’m a huge fan of hers and I think she’s a profoundly gifted artist. I really looking forward to collaborating with her because I know she’s going to bring so much to the table. I know loosely what our storyline is so I’m really excited about that.”
Unfortunately, Matt Bomer didn’t divulge any dirty details about their AHS: Hotel characters. However, he did reveal that he’s open to working with Lady Gaga again, and he even said that he’d star in one of her music videos “free of charge.” And who can blame him for begging for a part? Norman Reedus snagged a role in Gaga’s “Judas” video during season 2 of The Walking Dead, and he went on to become the most popular character on AMC’s horror TV series. Perhaps Gaga can work a little of her Fame Monster magic on Matt — he has some pretty stiff competition if he wants to become an American Horror Story fan favorite.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, the American Horror Story: Hotel cast currently includes Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Wes Bentley, Cheyenne Jackson, and Chloë Sevigny. Paulson will be playing a bad girl, and Peters might be playing a character inspired by Howard Hughes.
Ryan Murphy recently revealed that Angela Bassett is also joining the cast, and she and Lady Gaga will be spending a lot of time in the ballroom. This could be a hint that they’re playing performers who entertain the hotel’s glamorous guests.

Matt Bomer dropped another hint about his character during an interview with MTV News. He revealed that he’s working “pretty extensively” with Lady Gaga, so there’s a good chance that their characters will be lovers.
“Our storyline is really, really fun, and I think what they’re doing with our characters is really unique and kind of an original take on it.”
AHS: Hotel will reportedly be inspired by the 1935 musical comedy Top Hat, so perhaps Matt Bomer will be playing a performer based on Fred Astaire’s love-stricken dancer. In the movie, a case of mistaken identity made it difficult for Astaire’s character to woo a gorgeous fashion model (Ginger Rogers).
