The couple that stars in terrifying horror anthologies together, stay together! Neil Patrick Harris and husband David Burtka will be joining ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show!’
Neil Patrick Harris To Star In ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ With Husband
“[Neil] will appear in Freak Show‘s 11th and 12th episodes as a chameleon salesman, while [David] will turn up in the season finale (Episode 13) in what I’m told is a sexy storyline with Jessica Lange’s batty chanteuse,” TVLine exclusively reports.
Does this mean that Elsa gets cut a break?! We would hate to see her piled on even more. She’s just a little deluded! No biggie. Someone show her some genuine love and affection, already!
“[Neil] had very specific ideas for what he wanted to do, and I had very specific ideas, so we’re working on melding those,” creator Ryan Murphy previously told TVLine. We can’t imagine a better role for Neil in the AHS anthology than a “chameleon salesman!” Neil can seriously tackle any role.
Neil Patrick Harris Has Been Campaigning For A Role In ‘Freak Show’ Since July
Neil’s run on AHS was an inevitability; over the summer, he revealed to EW Radio that he actually wrote Ryan a letter requesting to appear on Freak Show. Neil admitted at the time that he hadn’t yet heard from Ryan, but the AHS showrunner was quick to speak up and offer him a role via Twitter, telling him: “@ActuallyNPH of course you can be on Freak Show! I have a role I think you’d love.”
We’re so glad that Neil’s grassroots campaign has come to fruition! Freak Show has been incredible so far (aside from a few of my own personal quibbles), and the star-studded addition of Neil and David will undoubtedly go off without a hitch.
HollywoodLifers, are you looking forward to seeing Neil and David on AHS: Freak Show, or were you kinda hoping that you wouldn’t have to have nightmares about NPH along with murder clowns and two-faced murder ghosts? Let us know!
