American Horror Story: Hotel is going to run out of rooms to hand out to hot stars if its cast keeps growing. However, Lady Gaga definitely can’t complain about the newest guest who just might be putting his life at risk by checking into Ryan Murphy’s hotel of horrors.
According to TV Line, fan favorite Finn Wittrock is joining the cast of American Horror Story: Hotel as one of Lady Gaga’s love interests. Finn previously played sadistic freak wannabe Dandy Mott in American Horror Story: Freak Show. Dandy had to compete for the affection of the objects of his obsession, conjoined twins Bette and Dot, and it looks like his Hotel look-alike will suffer a similar same fate — Wittrock’s Hotel character isn’t the only man wooing Lady Gaga’s blonde bombshell.
Gaga will find herself caught up in a “bad romance” when she tries to split her time between Finn Wittrock and Matt Bomer. Showrunner Ryan Murphy recently took to Twitter to reveal that Mama Monster will get to indulge in one hot love triangle during her stay on American Horror Story: Hotel.
Finn Wittrock is checking into HOTEL. Who will Gaga choose — Finn or Matt Bomer? #AHSHotel

The last time Finn Wittrock and Matt Bomer encountered each other on American Horror Story, things got very violent. And because the guys are now competing for the same gal, it’s safe to say that at least one of them won’t survive the Lady Gaga love triangle. Then again, this is American Horror Story we’re talking about here — the men might decide to murder Gaga’s character before riding off into the sunset together. Stranger things have happened on AHS.
Before it was revealed that Finn Wittrock would be joining the AHS: Hotel cast, he talked to Variety about Lady Gaga’s casting on the show. Finn didn’t drop any hints that he was in talks to play her lover, but he had nothing but praise for the “Born This Way” singer.
“The thing about her, with her great theatricality and the gratuity of her own image, it actually makes a lot of sense for her to be on this show. The show is heightened and gothic and that’s sort of what she is. It’s a good omen for the way the season will turn out.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Evan Peters is also returning to American Horror Story for his fifth season on the show. Ryan Murphy dropped a hint that he might be playing legendary producer Howard Hughes or a character based on the movie man. Hotel will be set in Hollywood, and the presence of Hughes or a Hughes-like character would definitely indicate that it’s set in the past — unless Peters is playing a ghost again, of course. Other returning cast members include Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, and Chloe Sevigny.
Lady Gaga’s fellow newcomers are New Girl star Max Greenfield and 30 Rock star Cheyenne Jackson. Moviefone interviewed Cheyenne Jackson on June 7, and, at the time, he claimed that he still had no idea who he would be playing on AHS: Hotel. However, he did drop a hint that his character won’t get killed off quickly.
“I’ve cleared everything because American Horror Story is going to take up all my time for the next eight months, except for a couple of concerts here and there.”
