Neil Patrick Harris Joins American Horror Story: Freak Show
NPH WOULD do that…
The multi-talented thespian, Neil Patrick Harris, is making an appearance in “American Horror Story: Freak Show” and he is bringing his real-life husband, David Burtka, with.
I guess it’s not enough that Harris has been given the prestigious task of hosting the Oscars in 2015 and is slated to headline his own variety series on NBC, he needs to do it all!
According to TVLine, who has exclusive confirmation of the mater:
Harris will appear in Freak Show‘s 11th and 12th episodes as a chameleon salesman, while Burtka will turn up in the season finale (Episode 13) in what I’m told is a sexy storyline with Jessica Lange’s batty chanteuse.
Apparently the story goes that Ryan Murphy, the creative force behind “AHS,” courted Harris for the show through Twitter back in August. Harris who is allegedly a “super-fan” of the show is not without ideas for his upcoming “AHS” character.
As per Murphy:
“[Harris] had very specific ideas for what he wanted to do, and I had very specific ideas, so we’re working on melding those.”
Murphy has worked with Harris in the past on the 1st season of Glee, an appearance which earned Harris and Emmy for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. Hopefully that chemistry will carry over to “AHS.”
