‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ Adds Richard T. Jones


Another guest has checked into American Horror Story: Hotel, but we don’t think he’ll be checking out.

Deadline broke the news that Richard T. Jones (Godzilla, Hawaii 5-0) is the latest addition to the cast, reporting that he’ll be taking on the role of Los Angeles police Homicide Detective Hahn. He’ll only be around of 8 of the season’s 13 episodes, so we can assume that he’ll meet a bloody end in the hotel he’s more than likely investigating.

Jones joins previously announced AHS vets Angela Bassett, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Chloe Sevigny, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, and last season’s breakout star Finn Wittrock, along with newbies Lady Gaga, Cheyenne Jackson and Max Greenfield.

His is the latest new character name we’ve learned, along with the names that were revealed at Comic-Con last weekend. Angela Bassett will be starring as Ramona, Kathy Bates as Iris, Sarah Paulson will play big bad Hypodermic Sally, Evan Peters will star as Mr. March and Matt Bomer will play the role of Donovan.

If you haven’t seen the first teaser from Hotel that was released, check it out here.

AHS:Hotel is currently in production and fans have about 3 more months until they can officially check in…and hope to check out.
