‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ Spoilers: Evan Peters wants to go darker; Darren Criss gets a ‘Halloween trick’ from Kathy Bates
Evan Peters is set to play an "eccentric" character in "American Horror Story: Hotel" when it premieres this October. This will be the fifth time that Peters will star in Ryan Murphy's horror anthology and his role is speculated to be darker than the previous ones.
Peters recently sat down with the Television Academy where his character for "Hotel" was revealed, according to Enstarz. He is set to portray an eccentric man a la Howard Hughes says the report and is named Mr. March. Leonardo DiCaprio previously gave life to Howard Hughes in the big screen in Martin Scorsese's "The Aviator" back in 2004.
The AHS veteran also told the academy that although playing crazy roles in the hit series has been "exhausting," he would want to play darker characters. Will Mr. March be the answer to his request?
Previously, Peters expressed his excitement over Lady Gaga's attachment to "Hotel." The 28-year-old actor admitted that he thought Gaga is perfect for the show and that he cannot wait to work with her. He even thought of a unique nickname for the pop star that he will use to call her while working on the set.
"Glee"'s Darren Criss is also set to guest star in AHS season 5 as Silver Lake hipster named Justin, as per Screen Crush's report. Criss' character and his girlfriend will stay in the hotel run by Kathy Bates in order to escape trick-or-treaters. He will unfortunately get an unforgettable Halloween trick from Kathy Bates after demanding too much of room service.
"American Horror Story: Hotel" will see Evan Peters as the eccentric Mr. March, who might probably be the darkest character that Evan Peters wishes to play. Darren Criss is also set to appear in season 5 only to be a victim of Kathy Bates' Halloween trick.
There is still no specific release date for "American Horror Story: Hotel" but it is slated to drop this October on FX.
