After winning a Golden Globes award for her portrayal as The Countess in Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story: Hotel”, is the Mother Monster set to return to the fresh installment of the anthology series?
In an interview with V Magazine, Lady Gaga seems to be amenable to the idea of returning to the show if she is offered another role since it was able to trigger her “artistic juices,” which flowed over to her musical endeavors.
“When I wasn’t working on the show I was truly miserable because I had no safe house to get out any of my vices. Now I have a safe house for my vices so when I’m making music I just have a lot more clarity. I have a little less of an instinct to be reckless with my music now because I’m reckless in other places,” she said.
While there has been no official word yet about the storyline for the new season, it has been reported that the “American Horror Story” team has expressed an interest in adopting The Slender Man, a Creepypasta character written by Eric Knudsen for “Something Awful” in 2009, reported Movie Pilot.
The character is a tall, thin man in a dark suit, and has no face. Some iterations of the character show him sporting tentacles. He has power to control children and uses them to do things for him.
The “AHS” team still has to acquire rights to use the character in the show but as early as now, fans are already suggesting who could play him in the sixth season of “American Horror Story.”
Two of the top suggestions are James Cromwell, who played AHS villain Dr. Arthur Arden, a Nazi doctor in Season 2. Not only does Cromwell fit the role physically with his towering 6’7″ height, he has also proven himself in playing ominous villains in the past effectively.
Another option would be to cast Doug Jones, who is no stranger to playing prosthetic clad antagonists in the past. An advantage of having him on board would be that he has already played Slender Man before in “Always Watching: A Marble Hornet’s Story.”
