'American Horror Story' Season 5 News: Dot-Marie Jones Of 'Glee' Would 'Love' To Be In Upcoming Cast [VIDEO]
Glee actress Dot-Marie Jones is hoping to extend her talents to another Ryan Murphy show, FX's American Horror Story.
Jones is in the midst of a big transgender storyline on Glee as her character Coach Beiste has made the transition to being a man. However, with this being the final season of Glee she is hoping to continue working.
The actress spoke with Vulture recently and revealed some of the shows she would like to be a part of in the future.
"I'd love to be on Mike & Molly. I love Melissa [McCarthy], she's incredible. Also, too, Ryan's other show, American Horror Story. I'd love to be on that," she admitted.
After the publication quipped that they were hoping Glee and American Horror Story were part of the same universe, Jones was receptive to the idea.
"That sounds awesome! I just want to work with Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson and Kathy Bates. That would be a dream come true," she said.
Unfortunately for Jones, it has been announced that Freak Show was Lange's last season with American Horror Story, though Paulson and Bates are unofficially expected to return for season 5.
Finn Wittrock, who played Dandy Mott on Freak Show, had a similar transition from appearing in Murphy's TV movie The Normal Heart and then American Horror Story. Assuming Murphy and company think she would fit, Jones might be an interesting perspective and look to American Horror Story.
American Horror Story season 5 is slated to debut in October on FX, though the network has not announced a specific premiere date yet.
