Darren Criss Set for Stay at AMERICAN HORROR STORY: HOTEL?

Darren Criss is going hipster for his recurring stay at AMERICAN HORROR STORY: HOTEL, according to a new report from E! News.

Criss is in talks to play 'Justin', described as 'a Silver Lake hipster who heads to the hotel on Halloween with his equally hip girlfriend to escape pesky trick-or-treaters. But after one too many room service demands, Kathy Bates' character, the head of the hotel, gives Criss' character a Halloween trick they will never forget."

Also in the ever-growing, star-filled company are Naomi Campbell, Lady Gaga, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Wes Bentley, Chloë Sevigny, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, Emma Roberts and Richard T. Jones. AHS alumna Lily Rabe is also in talks to portray a serial killer in the series.

Production of the 13-episode season will begin in Los Angeles later this summer, and will air on FX in October. The AMERICAN HORROR STORY franchise is produced by Twentieth CenturyFOX Television.

Criss, who just finished his run on Broadway in HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH, is well known for his role as 'Blaine Anderson' in AHS creator Ryan Murphy's musical comedy series GLEE. The actor just joined the indie rom-com SMITTEN! and recently received an Emmy nomination for his original song "Dreams Come True / Song Title: This Time." The actor also appeared in Broadway's HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING in 2012.
