Max Greenfield joins cast of "American Horror Story: Hotel"

"New Girl" star Max Greenfield has made a reservation for "American Horror Story: Hotel."

The actor has landed a role on the FX horror anthology's fifth season, series co-creator Ryan Murphy announced Monday.

"This October, Max Greenfield (like you've never seen him) is checking in to the hotel....but not checking out," Murphy teased on Twitter.

He'll be joined by Lady Gaga, Cheyenne Jackson and returning "AHS" cast members Angela Bassett, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Matt Bomer, Chloe Sevigny, Wes Bentley, and Kathy Bates -- but not Jessica Lange, who confirmed in March that she won't be returning this season.

It looks like Greenfield is ready for his "Hotel" stay -- after Murphy broke the news he sent a tweet of his own, adding, "It's ON!"
