TVLine posted today that Naomi Campbell has been cast in ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ and will be a rival to Lady Gaga’s character. She will be playing a fashion editor who pays the ultimate price for her critiques. She will also have scenes with Angela Bassett. ‘Hotel’ also stars fellow newcomer Max Greenfield, as well as returning cast members which include Bassett, Matt Bomer, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Denis O’Hare, Finn Wittrock and Lily Rabe.
Ryan Murphy said in a recent interview that ‘Hotel’ will be “much more horror-based” and “more dark” than previous seasons, and that “It’s… a little bloodier and grislier I think than anything that we’ve done before. It’s straight horror this year.”
