Cue the 'Bates Hotel' jokes! Ryan Murphy announced today via his Twitter that fan fav, Kathy Bates will be returning to his FX series for the third time and starring in "American Horror Story: Hotel." We don't yet know her role but she'd make a stellar owner of the hotel like he's hinting, wouldn't she? She's probably just happy she doesn't have a beard this season.

Bates will be joining other already announced cast members; Lady Gaga, Chloe Sevigny, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson. After filming this summer in Los Angeles, the show will air in October.
