Paulson told reporters at PaleyFest that she wanted to play Trump in 'AHS' season seven.
‘American Horror Story’ star Sarah Paulson has expressed a desire to play Donald Trump when the FX anthology series turns to the subject of the American election in its upcoming seventh season.
The 42 year old actress won an Emmy last year for her portrayal of real-life figure Marcia Clark in ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’, the ‘American Crime Story’ spin-off of Ryan Murphy’s ‘AHS’. Now, it seems she’s intent on doing the same for another real-life person – and this time, an even more divisive one!

The actress is glad Clark's name is also on her gong.
Sarah Paulson is no doubt still reeling after her win at the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, and that's largely down to not only pride in herself, but also in the real Marcia Clark because she believes that her new gong represents justice in some way for the prosecutor.
Sarah Paulson and Marcia Clark were united at the Emmys
Paulson landed Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her role as prosecutor Marcia Clark in 'American Crime Story: The People v. O. J. Simpson'. The show followed the court case of the NFL star's murder case, for which he was later acquitted despite many believing that he was guilty of the deaths of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown.

As in his gorgeous film Far From Heaven and TV series Mildred Pierce, filmmaker Todd Haynes tells a simple story with visual impact and thematic resonance. All three of these projects centre on characters who feel like outsiders in their societies, offering staggeringly complex roles for Julianne Moore, Kate Winslet and now Cate Blanchett. This one is also based on a Patricia Highsmith novel (published originally as The Price of Salt), so it has an added layer of underlying intensity.
The story is set in the run-up to Christmas 1952, as New York department store clerk Therese (Rooney Mara) becomes intrigued by Carol (Blanchett), a glamorous customer who seems unusually attentive. Therese finds a reason to contact her, and the two become friends despite the difference in age and class. Meanwhile, Carol is trying to extricate herself from her marriage to Harge (Kyle Chandler), who is still feeling wounded by Carol's relationship with another woman (Sarah Paulson) and threatens to use her friendship with Therese to deny custody of their young daughter. And Therese also has a nice-guy suitor in Richard (Jake Lacy), who is becoming increasingly suspicious. With all of this pressure on them, Carol and Therese make an impulsive decision to take a road trip together.
The events unfold with delicate precision, as Phyllis Nagy's script smartly allows these woman to circle around each other trying to work out how they feel. There's a gun-in-the-suitcase element that adds a bit of spark, but the real story here plays out between the lines in exquisite performances from Blanchett and Mara, who convey most of their feelings through offhanded glances and subtle gestures. This adds beautifully to the depiction of the period's repressive attitudes without ever being obvious about it, and it also reveals the deep emotions that come with feeling like you don't fit in with what society expects of you.

Anyone else get nightmares after Episode 3 of Hotel?
'American Horror Story' has returned with yet more blood and supernatural horrors than ever before with 'Season 5: Hotel'. If you thought 'Freak Show' was as bizarre as it could go, you'd be wrong. And episode three 'Mommy' takes it up yet another spine-chilling notch.
Chloe Sevigny has the creepiest greeting so far in 'American Horror Story: Hotel'
So what's happened so far? Well episode one 'Checking In' saw Hotel Cortez play host to some particularly creepy, bloodthirsty forces, with the wretched, ill-fated guests being killed by flesh-eating ghost kids, raped to death by the Addiction Demon and slashed to ribbons by vampires during an orgy. Plus, Hypodermic Sally (Sarah Paulson) has fallen to her death at the hands of Donovan's (Matt Bomer) protective mother, hotel manager Iris (Kathy Bates). Naturally, events have caught the attention of Detective John Lowe (Wes Bentley).
Therese Belivet is just starting out in life, bored by her simple job in a department store and even more so by her relationship with Richard. She dreams of bigger things; a career as a set designer and experiencing true love. Love has never found its way into Therese's life, that is until she meets a privileged and sophisticated older woman named Carol with whom she immediately bonds. While Carol's life is the opposite of Therese's in that she enjoys luxury on an everyday basis, she is equally dismayed by her love life; trapped in a marriage with a man she does not love, so that she may continue seeing her young daughter. As her relationship with Therese deepens, their attraction for each other becomes clear to everyone else, as well as Carol's intriguing friendship with close companion Abby, and she faces losing everything in her quest to discover herself once and for all.

To celebrate the upcoming series, Gaga threw a pool party at her Los Angeles home and invited the cast and crew of AHS: Hotel. Obviously, the 29-year-old couldn’t just throw any old pool party and she even dyed her swimming pool blood red for the occasion.

'Freak Show' star Finn Wittrock reveals why he's excited about Lady Gaga's appearance in the fifth season.
The man who played psychopath Dandy in the fourth series of 'American Horror Story' has given his thoughts on Lady GaGa's guest appearance in this year's chapter of the blood-spattered anthology.
Finn Wittrock's portrayal of Dandy was a highlight of 'Freak Show'
Speaking to Variety, actor Finn Wittrock recalled his reaction when he first heard the 'Bad Romance' singer would be guest starring in 'American Horror Story: Hotel' later this year.
It's 1952 and 20-something Therese Belivet is struggling to contend with her humdrum life working in a New York department store, repulsed by her relationship with a man named Richard and dreaming of a career in set design. Soon she meets a customer named Carol; an older, refined and supremely elegant woman who she immediately forms a connection with. Carol herself is in a marriage that brings her no joy and is hoping desperately for a divorce, but this only seems to threaten her relationship with her daughter, whom she cannot afford to lose. Meanwhile, Therese is struggling to control her feelings for Carol; torn between admiration, deep sexual attraction and jealousy over Carol's history with her best friend Abby. It's a difficult time for both parties as they attempt to find order in their feelings in a decade not altogether supportive of their closeness.
