Arguably one of the best actresses working in Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story anthology series, Lily Rabe has officially signed up for its newest incarnation – American Horror Story: Hotel. Rabe will reportedly play a famous serial killer who sets up shop at the titular hotel.
Currently seen on ABC’s The Whispers, Rabe had a smaller role in the first Murder House season but is best known for her later roles as Sister Mary Eunice in Asylum and the tragic Misty Day in Coven. Freak Show featured Rabe as Sister Mary Eunice in a brief cameo.
Rabe joins what has become a massive star cast for Murphy’s Hotel, which debuts in the traditional October timeframe. Previously announced cast members include Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Evan Peters, Finn Wittrock, Chloe Sevigny, Wes Bentley, and Cheyenne Jackson.
American Horror Story: Freak Show received a series-record 19 Emmy nominations in last week’s Emmy nominations announcement.
