This will not be Bomer’s first appearance on AHS. He guest starred in the most recent anthology, Freak Show. The series was created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the team behind Glee, which Bomer previously guest starred on, in addition to a guest role on Ryan Murphy’s NBC sitcom The New Normal.
Bomer also starred in The Normal Heart, which was directed by Murphy, for which he won a Golden Globe Award and a Critics Choice Award and was nominated for an Emmy Award.
“I love collaborating with Ryan Murphy,” said Bomer. “It feels like this world where there are no bounds.”
Cheyenne Jackson was also unveiled as a new cast member during the announcements at PaleyFest, where it was also announced that Jessica Lange, who has been with the series since the beginning, will not be returning.
American Horror Story: Hotel will be Bomer’s first television role since wrapping his six season USA series White Collar in December. His upcoming film projects include Magic Mike XXL and The Nice Guys, as well as the upcoming HBO film Monty Clift.
American Horror Story is produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
