Darren Criss is the next in line to check into Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story: Hotel.

E! News reports that the Glee graduate, who just wrapped a run on Broadway in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, is set for a recurring role, checking in just in time for the Halloween episode. Criss will play Justin, a hipster who visits the eerie hotel with his girlfriend to get away from annoying trick-or-treaters. But after his many demands irk the hotel manager (Kathy Bates), she seeks retribution.

American Horror Story: Hotel stars Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Cheyenne Jackson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, and Criss' Glee big brother, Matt Bomer.

Hotel premieres in October on FX.
