FX's American Horror Story season 5 will have Lady Gaga (Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta), 28, as the first confirmed casting for the next edition in the Emmy-nominated anthology sci-fi horror-thriller drama series created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck according to The Hollywood Reporter.

For the celebrated singer-songwriter, being given a role in the weekly series will mark her largest TV acting gig to date. It will also be her first regular scripted gig after several past appearances on unscripted TV fares like So You Think You Can Dance, The X Factor and American Idol as well as cameos in feature films like Machete KillsSin City: A Dame to Kill For, and Muppets Most Wanted

As observed by The Hollywood Reporter, Gaga's casting arrives as the future of the anthology's leading ladies remains in question. Jessica Lange has repeatedly said that season four, Freak Show, would likely be her last; co-star Sarah Paulson is set to star in Murphy's FX anthology American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. SimpsonEmma Roberts is slated to co-star with Lea Michele in Fox's comedy anthology Scream Queens; and, Taissa Farmiga is now signed on with ABC's police anthology L.A. CrimeFortunately, Kathy Bates can still be expected to return for season five.

While a specific premiere date has not yet been announced, season five of American Horror Story will likely debut in October. Also, the fifth season of the anthology apparently already has a subtitle. According to a tweet from Lady Gaga, it will be American Horror Story: Hotel.

In related news, Mail Online wrote that Gaga "will marry Taylor Kinney at her $23m Malibu mansion with Tony Bennett there to sing Cheek To Cheek." Kinney, 33, and Gaga got officially engaged on Valentine's Day. The Chicago Fire star, said Gaga, "First he gave me a Ring Pop. That was kind of amazing and I was crying, I was so excited. I said, 'Yes!' right away and then he pulled out the heart-shaped diamond. First it was candy. I was happy with the candy."
