The 37-year-old addressed the subject at a panel for AHS: Freak Show over the weekend. Bomer will play the male lead on the show but said  “I can’t confirm or deny that there might be a love interest,” as to whether or not his plot line will involve Lady Gaga, who has also been cast in the series. This is yet another professional outing for Bomer and AHS creator Ryan Murphy. "I love collaborating with Ryan Murphy,” he told the audience. The pair have worked together on the HBO film The Normal Heart as well as Glee. He also had a brief appearance as a murdered prostitute on Freak Show. Cheyenne Jackson has also been confirmed to join the series along with Bomer and Lady Gaga. One person who won't be appearing is longtime AHS vet Jessica Lange. She already said that the fourth installment would be her last and she reiterated it during the panel discussion. “We’ve had a great run here. I mean, I absolutely love doing these four characters, and in all the madness, I love the writers and Ryan (Murphy) and the insanity of shooting it" she told the audience. Bomer just finished six seasons on USA's White Collar in December.
