Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson to Star in 'American Horror Story: Hotel' Alongside Lady Gaga

Ahs

Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson are joining the cast of American Horror Story: Hotel, the Lady Gaga-starring upcoming fifth season of Ryan Murphy's hit FX series, Vulture reports:

"I can't confirm or deny that there may be a romantic relationship," Bomer said of his role alongside Gaga. But he did say he'd be willing to do crazy stuff, which is always promising: "I'm down. I only got to tip my toes in the freaky-deaky nature. I'm ready to go in the deep end, baby." 

Fan favorite Jessica Lange, however, will not be returning for this new season set to debut in October, EW reports:

“Yes, I’m done,” she said. “We’ve had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I’ve had the opportunity to play. In all the madness, I’ve loved the writers, my actors, Ryan and the whole, I mean, insanity of it, shooting here, shooting in New Orleans, the stories, everything.”

This isn't the first time Bomer and Jackson have collaborated with Ryan Murphy. Bomer starred alongside Mark Ruffalo in the award winning HBO film The Normal Heart and Jackson had a role on the second and third season of Glee

Jackson

Premiering exclusively on Towleroad is a clip for Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks, the new film starring Cheyenne Jackson and acting icon Gena Rowlands. 

In the clip, Lily Harrison (Rowlands) and her dance instructor Michael Minetti (Jackson) have finally gotten their groove down and must impress Minetti's boss (Julian Sands) with a cha-cha so that Minetti can keep his job. Ballroom shenanigans ensues, however, when a fellow dancer (Jackie Weaver) can't seem to keep her hands off the dapper dance instructor.

And in case you missed it, our film editor Nathaniel Rogers interviewed Jackson last month about his thoughts on the film and what it was like working with the legendary Rowlands. You can check that out here

Interview: Cheyenne Jackson 'Gets On With It' in Two Memorable Gay Films

BY NATHANIEL ROGERS 

Cheyenne Jackson's gone Hollywood. Though the 39 year old actor and self proclaimed "Broadway Baby" came to fame via musicals like "All Shook Up" (Theater World Award, 2005) and "Xanadu" (Drama Desk nomination 2008) and promises to return, TV and film came calling soon thereafter and appear to have stuck. His most notable early filmed roles were as a heroic passenger in the Oscar-nominated true story United 93 (2006) and a recurring gig on Emmy favorite 30 Rock as Danny Baker, a singing actor with a voice so beautiful he gave Jenna Maroney "rage strokes."

Loveisstrange-policemen

That first flush of mainstream success seemed to have been briefly eclipsed in the media by upheavals in his personal life, a divorce from his first husband and sobering up. But Cheyenne is eager to move on from that topic which he feels was overblown by the media. "Definitely with the gay press, it was rough there for a bit. Things were never not together; I think that's the misconception," he explains. Was it a rough patch? "I guess other people can think of it that way but to me it was just the next chapter. Time to clean up." 

And the next chapter is moving along well. After his brief note-perfect cameo in the Liberace movie Behind the Candelabra (2013) he's filmed several more roles including a small part as half of a gay cop couple affectionately referred to as 'The Policewomen' in one of this year's very best films LOVE IS STRANGE (2014, reviewed here). Ira Sachs moving drama recently won a handful of Spirit Award nominations.

As a longtime fan of Cheyenne Jackson, I confess to an atypical case of the nerves during our phone interview from separate coasts. Cheyenne helpfully tells me to imagine him in his underwear, and we both laugh immediately realizing that is not going to help. 'No wait. Maybe not. Maybe not'.

 

NR: Things seems to be on a real uptick in terms of your movie career!

CHEYENNE JACKSON: I’ve really kind of thrown myself into film and it’s been great. Some make their way to theaters, some go video on demand, some get nominated for things. I live out here now so it’s easier.

NR: Your new film SIX DANCES IN SIX WEEKS just opened this weekend. We don't see Gena Rowlands in lead roles much these days but she's one of the most influential actors of all time. How did your casting happen and how nerve wracking was is to work with her?

Actor Cheyenne Jackson will marry his boyfriend Jason Landau six months after divorcing his husband of 13 years Monte Lapka, Us Weekly reports:

"They've already begun planning the wedding!" the insider says of the happy couple, who went public with their romance in October 2013, and then attended the 2013 amfAR Inspiration Gala together in December. (More recently, they hit up the Kari Feinstein Style Lounge at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.)

This will be Jackson's second marriage. He and Lapka married in New York in September 2011 after 11 years together; they announced in August that they had "mutually decided to divorce."
