FX The connections between seasons of American Horror Story just got a little tighter. Sarah Paulson, who is currently playing drug addict/ghost Sally in American Horror Story: Hotel, will reprise her first American Horror Story role: Billie Dean Howard from AHS: Murder House, according to EW. Viewers will remember Billie Dean Howard was the psychic hired by Constance (Jessica Lange) to help Tate move on. Will she be coming to Hotel to help all the ghosts? Will we get some meta scene with two Sarah Paulsons? Request for comment was not immediately returned. Seasons one and five have already had connections front and center. Lady Gaga's Countess visited Dr. Montgomery in the titular Murder House for an abortion (that didn't go exactly as planned, demon babies and all) and the realtor who sold the Harmons that infamous house in season one, Marcy (Christine Estabrook), sold Will Drake (Cheyenne Jackson) the Hotel Cortez in AHS: Hotel.

Welcome to the Hotel Cortez, where everything is totally f--ked. We had no idea what to expect going into this season of American Horror Story, and just like every good episode of AHS, we still have no idea what's going on, but that doesn't mean we're not obsessed. Is everyone dead? Is Gaga a vampire? Is it weird that we watched Gaga and Matt Bomer's orgy murder scene (after a trip to a poorly attended Cinespia screening, no less!), and thought, "Well, if you gotta die..." (Answers: Probably, no, and no?) It appears that Gaga and her hotel are in the business of murdering people (in some of the worst possible ways) and dooming them to an eternal afterlife of hanging out in the hotel and looking both beautiful and very ill at the same time. She also steals children from carousels and turns them into adorable not-vampire ghost children, much to the chagrin of parents like Chloe Sevigny and Wes Bentley. There's also some serious mother/son drama between Kathy Bates and Matt Bomer, … [Read more...] about American Horror Story: Hotel: We Checked in & We’re Never Checking Out (Despite How Terrified We Are)
Sarah Paulson is going bad for American Horror Story: Hotel, and she likes it. The Emmy nominee (sadly not a winner yet—what gives, Television Academy?!) is playing Hypodermic Sally—not Sally Hypodermic, it's not her last name—a junkie with more than her fair share of problems. Sally's a far cry from the heroic Lana Winters of AHS: Asylum and witchy Cordelia of AHS: Coven. "Sally is a very dark girl, but also a very broken girl. I think of her sort of as a broken ragdoll," Paulson told Kristin Dos Santos in the video above shot on set of AHS: Hotel. "She has a lot of emotion, she's got a lot of fire in her belly." Sally once hoped of becoming a singer, but that dream was dashed. Now she's kicking it around Hotel Cortez with a bevy of other color characters including Lady Gaga's The Countess, a hemophiliac (not a vampire!), Kathy Bates' Iris, Matt Bomer's Donovan and Angela Bassett's Ramona. But American Horror Story: Hotel isn't Paulson's only TV gig this time around. … [Read more...] about Sarah Paulson Is Going Down a Dark, Broken Road for American Horror Story: Hotel
When you're working on American Horror Story, there's a good chance you will be dealing with some pretty gruesome and frightening stuff, sometimes even your greatest fears.

"I'm going to stop telling him what they are because they keep showing up." American Horror Story: Hotel is dealing with addiction this year. There's also the whole haunted and horrific hotel element and somehow the Ten Commandments, quasi-vampires, a featureless being with a drill bit gold dildo and Matt Bomer's endless jawline all mixed in.

American Horror Story: Hotel is going to be very bloody this year, according to Sarah Paulson.
