A familiar face is checking into Hotel Cortez.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Sarah Paulson will reprise her role as psychic Bille Dean Howard from American Horror Story: Murder House for the season finale of Hotel. Back in season 1, Billie Dean Howard was introduced as the beautiful, chain-smoking confidante of Jessica Lange‘s character, Constance Langdon. With Lange’s departure, Paulson has now become the anchor for the show, although she had a relatively minor role in Murder House.
This is definitely exciting news, and it means that Paulson will be playing two different roles (Sally and Billie Dean) simultaneously. In Hotel’s finale, we’ll see how Billie Dean got her own reality series which primarily focuses on her psychic abilities. She comes to Hotel Cortez believing that it could be an intriguing setting for an episode of her reality show, but will everything turn out as Billie Dean hopes?
As AHS fans already know, Paulson isn’t the only one playing dual roles this season. Finn Wittrock portrayed the doomed supermodel Tristan Duffy and movie star Rudolph Valentino. Other Murder House characters who have already made an appearance in Hotel include realtor Marcy (Christine Estabrook) and Dr. Montgomery (Matt Ross).
Are you excited for Billie Dean’s triumphant return?
