'AHS: Hotel' exclusive: Ryan Murphy on Wednesday's shocking episode
SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen the most recent episode of
debut on Wednesday, and the Hotel Cortez may never be the same.
Starring as Mr. James March, the builder of the famed hotel who wasn’t just interested in creating a luxury destination – he had much more sinister plans in mind. With a little help from his go-to gal Miss Evers (Mare Winningham), this serial killer turned his hotel into his personal (horrifying) playground. According to co-creator Ryan Murphy, Peters did “a lot of research” when it came to crafting this menacing villain.

“I love what he’s doing and he’s very heavy this season,” Murphy told EW of Peters’ character. “The more we go on, the bigger he becomes. He’s having a ball. It’s always a good thing when you have an actor who texts you after a scene, ‘That was the most f—ed up but exhilarating thing I was forced to do.’”
Murphy continued, “He’s evil and he’s twisted. He said some line about that he had everything handed to him. Excess became such a part of his life that he couldn’t feel anything. So in order to feel something he had to push it to an extreme dark place.”
Peters joined fans on Twitter Wednesday night for a Q&A, and according to the actor, this
is his favorite season – and character – yet. Of course, he is fond of March’s mustache, too. Here are a few of his best responses, below. For more on the interview with Murphy, head here.
