'American Horror Story: Hotel': Chloë Sevigny & Wes Bentley Cast as Regulars

Chloë Sevigny and Wes Bentley cast in American Horror Story: Hotel

American Horror Story show-runners/creators Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy frequently reuse the same actors for different seasons of the anthology horror series - the most famous example being Jessica Lange, of course. However, casting for the show's upcoming fifth season (subtitled Hotel) has thus far included none of the usual American Horror Story suspects. Well, until the past week, anyway.

Chloë Sevigny and Wes Bentley - who've both appeared on previous American Horror Story seasons - are now officially set as series regulars for Hotel (which begins airing this Fall). The pair are joining an ensemble that so far includes pop music star Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer (White Collar), and Cheyenne Jackson (30 Rock); as was indicated before, though, Lange will not be appearing on this season of the popular (if also polarizing) FX series.

Sevigny previously appeared on American Horror Story season two (a.k.a. Asylum) as Shelley, the Briarcliff inmate committed for nymphomania by her jealous, duplicitous husband. Bentley, as it were, was featured on the show's fourth season (Freak Show) as Edward Mordrake: a (literal) two-faced specter who collects the souls of tormented carnival performers.

Murphy confirmed Sevigny for Hotel on Twitter today (see below), after having announced the news about Bentley a week ago.
