It's official. Matt Bomer will be the male lead in American Horror Story: Hotel opposite previously announced Lady Gaga.

The announcement was made at Paleyfest on Sunday night, reuniting Bomer with Ryan Murphy.

Bomer previously worked with Murphy when he guest starred on American Horror Story Season 4, and Glee. He also won an Emmy Award for his performance in Murphy's HBO movie, The Normal Heart.

Details about Bomer's character are being kept under wraps, although he mentioned he might be playing a love interest for Gaga's character. 

Another Glee alum, Cheyenne Jackson, will also be joining the Hotel cast.

In news that doesn't come as too big of a shock considering the casting of Lady Gaga, Jessica Lange confirmed she is done with the franchise. 

“We’ve had a great run here," she says. "I mean, I absolutely love doing these four characters, and in all madness, I love the writers and Ryan and the insanity of shooting it.”

American Horror Story Quotes

I am the queen of every hive. I am the fire on every hill. I am the shield over every head. I am the spear of battle. Who but I am both the tree and the lightning that strikes it?

The Butcher

We have two selves. One the world needs us to be, compliant, and the shadow. Ignore it and life is forever suffering.
