Neil Patrick Harris joined the Freak Show! It is already quite creepy and disturbing at times and now when Neil Patrick Harris joined the cast it will be much more interesting but Neil doesn’t have the portfolio of being creepy and downright psycho, It will be a interesting watch to see him mix with the freaks. This is the second best season of American Horror Story after the second season for me.
According to Variety, Harris will play a salesman in the final two episodes of the season, and that Burtka’s role will be connected with the storyline of Jessica Lange’s character, Elsa Mars. Harris admitted earlier in the year that he wanted to join the series, and he even reached out to creator Ryan Murphy. Harris told EW Radio:
“I wrote a letter to Ryan asking if I can be in it, even though I wasn’t even available to be in it. To do one that involves any kind of freak, circus nonsense is going to be so unsettling to watch. Can’t wait!”
This wouldn’t be the first time that Harris and Murphy worked together, they collaborated on a season one episode of Glee, which earned Harris an Emmy nomination for guest actor in a comedy series.
