Season 5 of FX's American Horror Story, dubbed American Horror Story: Hotel, is the first season that won't feature Emmy-winning actress Jessica Lange, who starred in the first four seasons. Instead, this season will feature none other than hit recording artist Lady Gaga in her first TV series as Elizabeth. You can get a glimpse of this enigmatic character in a new trailer for the upcoming season. The trailer showcases a number of mysterious areas of the title hotel, set to the 1990s heavy metal hit "Du Hast" by the German band Rammstein.
Last week, FX debuted another trailer that featured Lady Gaga's Elizabeth sporting some incredibly long hair, but we don't see any super-long locks in this trailer. There is very little we know about her character, or any of the other characters, for that matter, but we'll find out about these hotel inhabitants when American Horror Story: Hotel debuts next month on FX. Lady Gaga was the first cast member announced back in February, with series creator Ryan Murphy assembling a cast of new and familiar faces around her.Read More
