We can all breathe easy, because an American Horror Story fan favorite has officially joined the cast of the new season. Jessica Lange may have truly jumped ship after Freak Show, but the news is still good: Angela Bassett joined American Horror Story: Hotel as a cast member, and it's a good enough reason as any to tune into the new season. Not that we didn't have an amazing cast before Bassett — with Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, and newcomer Lady Gaga in tow, we certainly will have more than enough amazing faces to scare us onscreen — but it helps Hotel's case to have Bassett back in action.
Long story short? I'm stoked she's checking in.
The What's Love Got To Do With It? actress was a fan favorite from the moment she appeared onscreen as all-powerful voodoo Madame Laveau on American Horror Story: Coven, and since then, her characters have become the catalyst for some of the funniest and most outrageous American Horror Story moments. And luckily, most of them can apply to your daily life. Have a Bassett moment by applying this American Horror Story GIFS to your day to day life.
