Emma Roberts Has A Cool ‘AHS: Hotel' Role

by Lindsey Kupfer

Sorry to all the Chanel fans who were hoping to see Emma Roberts on American Horror Story: Hotel in the first half of the season, you will be waiting a bit longer than you expected for the Scream Queen herself to check in. Ryan Murphy has confirmed that she will be returning to the show, but not until way later in the season. Murphy said in an interview with zap2it: “She’s still going to do a couple episodes of Horror Story at the end … She comes at the end. She comes and she has a great thing with Evan Peters at the end.” So, I think it’s safe to say she comes in… at the end.

At this point we know that Evan Peters plays James March, the builder and owner of the creepy hotel. “He’s designed a hotel to cater to his specific needs, which tend toward the dark evil,” Peters told Entertainment Weekly. After watching the premiere, it’s not surprising that the man behind the entire hotel is also creepy and probably a murderer. If Emma Roberts is coming in and has a bit with Peters, I'm going to guess that she's a guest of sorts and she probably doesn't leave the hotel alive.

We know nothing about her character yet either, but secretly I’m hoping she plays someone who is exactly like Chanel Oberlin for the following reasons.

1. Chanel Is A Badass

At this point, if you've been watching Scream Queens, you know that Chanel doesn't take crap from anyone and knows how to shut people down. If anyone has a chance for surviving the hotel, it's Chanel. After all, she's not afraid to burn your face off with a deep fryer.

2. She’s The Worst, In The Best Way

She may be the worst type of person, but I mean that in the best way possible. She's the type of person you absolutely love to hate. Also you cannot stop watching her when she's on the screen because she's kind of awesome.

3. Her Fashion Is Perfect

I have to say, Chanel's fashion is pretty much the best wardrobe since Cher Horowitz's closet that automatically matched your clothes. Her closet on Scream Queens is what my dreams look look (minus all the murders). If Emma Roberts shows up in her Chanel gear, she would fit in kind of perfectly with all the crazies at the hotel.

4. Emma Roberts Was Born To Play The Mean Girl

I’m sorry, but besides Nancy Drew, has Emma Roberts ever played the sweet, innocent girl? Nope. And that is not a bad thing, especially when you can play bitch perfectly. I expect to see some attitude from whoever she plays, which means she should be channelling her inner-Chanel on AHS.

5. Chanel Wouldn’t Die

Chanel Oberlin would walk in there and kill everyone before they tried to murder her.

6. We Need A Stand-Off between Chanel And Gaga

Wouldn’t a fight between those two be a magical moment? To be honest, I would put my money on Emma Roberts.

I know she's not showing up until the end, but I'm already eagerly anticipating her hopefully Chanel-fueled arrival.
