“American Horror Story: Hotel” – First Scene Released

In a bit of cross-promotional Ryan Murphy synergy, the first scene from American Horror Story: Hotel premiered during Tuesday night’s episode of Scream Queens. What it lacks in Lady Gaga, it more than makes up for in menace. We see Wes Bentley’s character laying down for a bit of a rest in the mysterious Hotel Cortez and as the camera pans down audiences get a heaping American Horror Story dose of gore.

In Season 5, Bentley will playing John Lowe, a detective investigating murderous goings on at the hotel. He’s our everyman but who knows how long he’ll stay that way. As for the surprise underneath the bed, well, it’s a pretty familiar scene for anyone who has watched the previous four seasons of the FX horror anthology. If there’s anything we know aboutAmerican Horror Story (and Scream Queens, for that matter) it’s not to expect the dead to stay that way.

Edwards’s The Better Angels, an ethereal, black-and-white drama that explores Abraham Lincoln’s childhood. In the latter, Bentley plays a soft-spoken school teacher who enters our future 16th president’s life and nudges him towards greatness. It’s a role in stark contrast to another appearance playing concurrently on the small screen: American Horror Story: Freak Show‘s Edward Mordrake. Seriously, Bentley is everywhere. Vulture sat down with the actor to touch on each of his spinning plates, plus the everlasting effect of The Hunger Games and an unlikely fandom surrounding Ghost Rider.
