Matt gave a very nice interview to Yahoo! about the last American Horror Story: Hotel episode and its implications on the current season. Check it:
Obviously you had that memorable death scene in your undies last season and worked with Ryan Murphy on The Normal Heart. How did it come about that you would return to AHS and in a much bigger capacity?
I reached out to him after I had done that cameo in Freak Show. I told him I had a great time and he asked me if I wanted to come on board next season. I am a huge fan of the franchise and had greatly enjoyed working with Ryan over the years so when he proffered that, I immediately accepted. Since then, the season has gone through many incarnations and has added lots of new people to the cast. But I already know I can trust him, so I knew they would give me something fun to chew on no matter what. Part of the fun of working with Ryan is seeing what they come up with. It is never boring.
I had heard that the first episode’s foursome was the first scene you shot for Hotel.
Actually that is completely false. I didn’t do that scene until about two months into filming. A lot of filming for me has been non-sequential because we were waiting on Ms. Gaga’s schedule to free up. I actually did a lot more of the third episode before we even got to the first.
