Neil Patrick Harris Joins <em>American Horror Story: Freak Show</em>


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.”

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
