Your Guide To The Star-Studded 'AHS: Hotel' Cast

by Maggie Malach

Season 5 of American Horror Story just added another star to the cast list! While we already knew that both AHS regulars and newbies are joining American Horror Story: Hotel , we now know that Darren Criss is in talks to play one of the guests. E! News reports that Criss' possible American Horror Story: Hotel character would be "Justin, a Silver Lake hipster who heads to the hotel on Halloween with his equally hip girlfriend to escape pesky trick-or-treaters." Things don't look good for Justin, because "after one too many room service demands, Kathy Bates' character, the head of the hotel, gives Criss' potential character a Halloween trick they will never forget."

Criss' roles have ranged from the sweet and charismatic Blaine Anderson on Glee to the title character in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. There's no doubt that this would broaden his range even more if he decides to join the series plus it would be great to see him collaborate with Ryan Murphy again.

Criss would be the latest in a long list of stars who are signing on for the next season of AHS. Having trouble keeping all of them straight? Here's your handy guide to the AHS: Hotel cast and the characters they will play.
