Celebrity Couple Joining the Cast of ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’

It’s official! A well-known celebrity couple is set to join the cast of “American Horror Story: Freak Show.” Who are they? Read on for further details.

Neil Patrick Harris will be joining “American Horror Story: Freak Show” together with his husband, David Burtka. According to TV Line,


Harris will apprear in Freak Show’s 11th and 12th episodes as a chameleon salesman, while David will turn up in the season finale (Episode 13) in what I’m told is a sexy storyline with Jessica Lange’s batty chanteuse.

Does that mean that Elsa Mars will finally meet the true love of her life that will change how she sees things? Will her perspectives change when it comes to fame and being adored? Is Burtka the one to finally change Elsa?

During the summer, Harris admitted that he wrote Ryan Murphy a letter of request to join  “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” but he hasn’t heard back until Ryan tweeted that he can be on the show, and he has a role that he would love.

“Neil had very specific ideas for what he wanted to do, and I have very specific ideas, so we’re working on melding those,” said Murphy on TV Line.

“American Horror Story: Freak Show” has been very successful so far, and with the addition of this lovely couple, things will even be more interesting.
