Chloe Sevigny will be returning to American Horror Story for the show’s upcoming season, which will take place in a hotel, according to series creator Ryan Murphy.
Sevigny previously appeared on American Horror Story: Asylum, where she played a nymphomaniac, but it’s not clear what her role will be during the new season. She joins a spectacular ensemble cast that includes Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, and Wes Bentley, and while no other former stars of the series have been announced, several have said they would jump at the chance to work with Murphy again. Kathy Bates and Evan Peters are among those, and fans of the first season are happy to note that Connie Britton also said she would love to make an appearance.
“I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I sure would love to work with Lady Gaga and I’m gonna miss Jessica [Lange] so. I’d like to move on and be a part of the new crew. I hope they announce it soon,” Bates said earlier this month.
Sevigny hasn’t commented on the news–which Ryan Murphy announced this week on Twitter–but the actress did find herself in some hot water on the web recently when she commented on Jennifer Lawrence in an interview, calling her “annoying” and “crass”.
“So much is about marketing and selling the product. They’ll have a really peppy funny girl on the talk show rounds, and everybody adores her and loves her and wants to be her or f*ck her, and then so many more people want to watch the movie or TV show. I understand that star quality, how much value that carries. I love when a movie star is a great movie star. I think Angelina Jolie is a great movie star. I don’t think I can be that, or just be an actor. I don’t think I have the charisma. Which is probably why I never reached another level. I like Emma Stone. Whenever she’s herself, she’s really cute. Jennifer Lawrence I find annoying. Too crass,” Chloe told V Magazine.
Lawrence has not commented on the interview. The new season of American Horror Story premieres this fall on FX.
