Naomi Grossman, who played microcephalic Pepper in two seasons of “American Horror Story,” has said that there is a chance that she would appear in “American Horror Story” Season 5, subtitled “Hotel.”

"Of course there’s a chance. Anything’s possible in 'American Horror Story,” Grossman said while speaking to Too Fab about the possibility of her popping up on “Hotel.” She also said “anything could happen,” adding “the Beatles could be resurrected and reunited on that show, anything could happen!"

Grossman first made her appearance as Pepper in Season 2 of “American Horror Story-Asylum.” She returned to reprise the role in Season 4, subtitled “Freak Show.” As the show is expected to be set in the present time, it is unlikely that she will be returning as Pepper. If she signs on to star in the new season, the actress might play a new character.  

Meanwhile, co-creator of “American Horror Story” Ryan Murphy has been revealing the names of actors, who have been cast in the fifth instalment of FX’s horror anthology series,on his Twitter feed. The last name that he announced was that of Angela Bassett, saying she is going make a “lot of trouble with Lady Gaga in the ballroom and elsewhere.”

In addition to Bassett, the other AHS alums who are returning are Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Chloe Sevigny. Matt Bomer, who played hustler boy Andy in an episode of “Freak Show,” has signed on as series regular. Wes Bentley, who recurred as two-faced mythic character Edward Mordrake in Season 4, has been cast as a series regular. Cheyenne Jackson is also part of “American Horror Story” Season 5.  The most anticipated appearance in the upcoming season is that of Lady Gaga. She has a series regular role and there is a possibility that her character will romance Bomer’s.

The details about the character and the storyline have not been revealed. Murphy posted on Twitter that Bates will be running the Hotel while Paulson is the “baddest bad girl of them all.” For Peters, he said he will be waiting in Room 64.   

 “American Horror Story-Hotel” is expected to begin filming later this summer and is scheduled to premiere sometime this October.
