The announcement that Bomer ("Glee," "White Collar") and Jackson (Xanadu, All Shook Up, Finian's Rainbow) would join the show's fifth season in leading roles was made at PaleyFest 2015. The two join previously announced cast member Lady Gaga.
Bomer previously guest starred on the fourth season of "AHS," titled "Freak Show." Details of the actors' roles are being kept under wraps, but it was announced that the show's star, Jessica Lange (The Glass Menagerie), would depart the series.
"American Horror Story: Hotel," slated to premiere on FX in October, is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television. Production on the 13-episode season will begin in late summer.
