Better book your reservation now, because it looks like the hotel on “American Horror Story” is getting full. On Wednesday, Ryan Murphy, co-creator of the hit anthology, revealed the latest cast addition to Season 5 of the frightening FX series: Finn Wittrock.
“Finn Wittrock is checking into HOTEL,” the mastermind behind the creepy drama confirmed on Twitter. The showrunner then added that Wittrock’s character may find himself in a love triangle this season with his fellow co-stars Lady Gaga and Matt Bomer. “Who will Gaga choose -- Finn or Matt Bomer?” Murphy teased, suggesting some steamy drama.

This wouldn’t be the first time Wittrock found himself vying for a woman’s attention on the set of “American Horror Story.” During Season 4 of the chilling series, the “AHS” alum, who portrayed the angelic-faced monster Dandy Mott, attempted to win the heart of the two-headed Tattler twins. However, his plan to live out a happily ever after with Bette and Dot (Sarah Paulson) was foiled after meeting his watery fate.
Dandy was responsible for the horrific mass murder at the “Freak Show” camp, where he gruesomely killed many of the performers. But tables turned on the twisted character when he was captured by the surviving carnies and drowned to death a la Harry Houdini style.
One of the characters who was tortured and killed by Dandy during “Freak Show” was Andy, who was played by Bomer. That makes the upcoming love triangle that much more interesting considering the two men will have to be at one another’s throats once again.
But it’s quite possible Lady Gaga’s decision will have nothing to do with a love triangle. It may be that the decision she’s being forced to make may involve deciding which one of the men she wants to kill -- after all, Murphy did say Lady Gaga would be getting into “lot of trouble” come Season 5.
Who do you think Lady Gaga’s character will choose in “AHS: Hotel”? Will it be Bomer or Wittrock? Sound off in the comments section below and don’t forget to tune in to Season 5 of “American Horror Story” on FX this October.
