American Horror Story: Darren Criss Eyeing Spooky Hotel Residency

Darren Criss American Horror Story

Glee grad Darren Criss is the latest of Ryan Murphy’s band of actors to ring for a bellhop at American Horror Story: Hotel.

Criss is in talks to recur on the FX drama’s upcoming season as a hipster who checks into the eerie accommodations with his girlfriend on Halloween and — thanks to ticking off hotel head Kathy Bates with too many room-service requests — may not check out.

Per E! Online, which first reported the potential casting, Criss’ character would premiere in the Halloween episode and recur after that.

The litany of famous names (in addition to Bates) who’ve already signed up to be part of Murphy’s latest AHS chapter is fun to repeat, so here goes: Naomi Campbell, Lady Gaga, Max Greenfield, Angela Bassett, Matt Bomer, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Denis O’Hare, Lily Rabe, Wes Bentley and Finn Wittrock.
