is making Neil Patrick Harris‘ upcoming stint something of a family affair.
his real-life husband, David Burtka, are set to guest-star on FX’s anthology smash.

‘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.
super-fan (and good friend) NPH on the show via Twitter back in August — told TVLine of Harris’ forthcoming
stint: “He had very specific ideas for what he wanted to do, and I had very specific ideas, so we’re working on melding those.”
Murphy and Harris’ previous collaboration — a Season 1 episode of
actor an Emmy for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series.
development caps a busy news cycle for Harris, who was recently tapped to host the 2015 Oscars and headline his own NBC variety series.
Cool after how I met your mother its a nice change to see him in something dark.
Okay. This makes up for not bringing back Zachary Quinto.
I bet Matt Boomer will be the surprise guest on there.
This is the problem with this show. Rm tries to write new characters in whenever an actor says they’d be interested. There are already too many characters in this season. The story lines just feel choppy to me so far in these three eps.
I agree 1 thing I’m not really liking so far is the surplus of people that are coming and going, its too fast paced to keep up with. This is what happened with “Coven” it started off good, and thenow gothe so messy with the stories the whole season went downhill
well spoiler (don’t look if you havne’t watched ep4), but characters are dying fast, we have time for new ones
And therein lies my problem with Ryan Murphy’s style– someone famous wants in and Murphy finds a way to make it happen rather than writing a good season and finding the best performers to make it happen.
It’s not “someone famous” for one, as it says they are good friends. That’s kinda how this world works, friends are gravitated towards friends. Look at the Happy Gilmore movies, the Kevin Smith movies, and many other franchises. Secondly, NPH is a great addition.
That’s a really poor comparison because while those movies are made within groups of friends, they already know who is going to be in them in advance with their parts already written. They didn’t just decide to tweak things around to add in a character that would be played by a “friend”. If AHS were a serialized show, it would not be a big deal, but it’s supposed to have a structured and complete story each season. Murphy constantly does this, suddenly making late cast editions with high-profile actors.
Does that mean a salesman with a chameleon nature or a salesman who sells chameleons?
…and then all the Glee people will pop out of a circus tent and do a musical number like its the Academy Awards. This used to be my favorite show and now it’s gone down the toilet. This season is absolutely terrible.
You’re saying this as if Coven’s writing wasn’t horrendous, only saved by the acting.
meh, it’s you who speak such hyperbolic things as “absolutely” terrible that makes me hate the internet. most are just part of a unnecessarily cruel, unforgiving mob
I can’t wait to see what kind of role that Neil and David will be playing on the show. I know that it will be a eye-opener.
Really? Introducing recurring characters that close to the end of the season… sounds dumb.
Well, I guess I will be the minority here because I do not see NPH as a serious actor and he really does’nt fit into the AHS family. He might as well have gotten a part as a stone cold bad ass on Sons of Anarchy. It make as much sense, As you can tell, I am not a Doogie fan, but I stay glued to the screen when AHS is on. BTW, how can they use NPH after having Adam Levine in a guest roll?
I can’t wait to see what kind of role that Neil and David will be playing. They got the right actor.
Wow. Some of you have no clue about how business and entertainment works.
Just because this news was just announced doesn’t mean it was just decided. They have probably been talking about it for a year. Even the “ripped from the headlines” plots of Law & Ordee take a while to produce.
When you are marketing a product, such as a tv show, you roll out announcements slowly, not all at once, so people keep talking about it. If they announced every actor and teased every plot twist at the beginning of the season, there would be nothing to keep them in the news for the whole season.
Love this show. 76 years old and love Twisty???? Wish this show could always be on tv, as a series. Boo Hoo poor Meep. FX Rocks.
NPH is such a good actor that I can’t wait. He was wonderful in ‘Gone Girl.’
Great additionseeing to the show. Enjoying the new Freak Show. Can’t go wrong with American Horror Story. Great cast and crew. Keepem coming!!
Woot i love harris and find him extreamly funny. Will be interesting to see him play in a dark show such as AHS
Work with what you have. Enough of NPH and Betty White. You see them so much that it causes a dislike for both. Use to love them.
If it weren’t for Twisty the Clown (John Carroll Lynch), “AHS: Freak Show” would be yet another forgettable and mediocre foray into the dark side. Instead of standing out as unique misfit characters intertwined in an interesting and compelling story arc, the freaks have become caricatures of Ryan Murphy’s and Brad Falchuk’s own making.
AHS is the best show ever. I can’t wait to see who’s coming next…..
