Ryan Murphy, who is the main show-runner for the hit series ‘American Horror Story’ has assured fans that the casting of Lady Ga Ga is not something to be sniffed at as stunt casting.

In a recent chat with Deadline Murphy said that Gaga’s role in the new series, which has the full title of ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ is a pure acting role. A fact, which will no doubt upset fans that would like her to sing in the show.

Gaga has her first major television acting role in the new American Horror Story season alongside franchise veterans Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates and Chloë Sevigny.

“People, keep saying to me, ‘What numbers are they singing, what numbers are they singing?’ and I say, ‘There will be no numbers’,” he told the website. “The interesting thing is we cast a lot of singers this season, but I like that singers – for the most part – [tend to be] great actors, because they know how to sell a story through song.”

Murphy went on to say: “I’m excited about that and I think that’s why Gaga was excited about it; it’s not something that she’s ever done before.

“It’s a pure acting part. I think people expect that she’s going to be sitting in a bar in a white silk gown sort of singing songs – she is not.”

Murphy went onto reveal that the series will be much more horror based this season.

“It’s… a little bloodier and grislier I think than anything that we’ve done before. It’s straight horror this year,” he promised

Others on board for Hotel include Matt Bomer, Max Greenfield, Angela Bassett, Evan Peters and Wes Bentley.

‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ will debut on FX in the US this October. FOX airs the series in the UK.
