Neil Patrick Harris On ‘AHS: Freak Show’: NPH Stars As Evil Magician — Watch
Neil seems harmless enough when he first shows up to the freak show as the new owner who takes an interest in two-headed twins Bette and Dot (Sarah Paulson).
But he quickly raises our suspicions when he puts a very bloody twist on the old sawing someone in half trick.
“Magic is about distracting an audience,” Neil’s character tells Bette and Dotte before taking the stage, “And what better distraction than you two?”
“Because we’re freaks?” they ask.
“No, because you’re beautiful,” he replies eerily. OK, we’ll buy that — but what’s up with the doll, Neil?! Guess we’ll have to wait and see when AHS returns to FX on Jan. 7!
Neil Patrick Harris & Husband David Burtka Join ‘AHS: Freak Show’
Neil was so interested in starring on AHS that he actually sent a letter to creator Ryan Murphy asking for a guest spot! He was originally supposed to be a “chameleon salesman” but it looks like producers had a change of heart.
“[Neil] had very specific ideas for what he wanted to do, and I had very specific ideas, so we’re working on melding those,” Ryan previously told our sister site TVLine.
Neil’s husband, David Burtka, 39, is also set to star in the season finale.
So HollywoodLifers, are YOU excited to see Neil on AHS: Freak Show? Let us know!
