Watch Neil Patrick Harris Do More Magic Tricks!
If you are absolutely smitten by him after his amazingly legendary performance in the evergreen show, How I Met Your Mother, then you might want to see him, in an all new avatar, trying to put on the freak shoes! The Harold and Kumar star has revealed his affection for magic, circus and freak shows on an interview with Entertainment Weekly Radio. Harris also candidly and openly spoke of his love for AHS and expressed appreciation for the previous season, Coven. In fact, the love is so intense that he even wants to be a part of American Horror Story: Freak Show. Neil Patrick Harris said, “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!”
Here is the audio clip of Neil Patrick’s interview:
While initially there was no response from Ryan Murphy, co-creator of American Horror Story, he did finally give the green light. Murphy tweeted to Neil Patrick Harris, ‘Of course you can be on Freak Show! I have a role I think you’d love.’
As mentioned by Harris himself, he has a schedule where AHS might not fit happily and he might not be able to finally join the Freak Show, but can we, as fans, just imagine how brilliant it would be to have such an amazing talent be added to the already majestic show! Sure, AHS has our fancy, thanks to the consistent creepy, scary season, but having Harris added to the cast simply sets a new benchmark! It will be like a cherry on the cake, we say! And quite frankly, who wouldn’t like to see Barney Stinson pull another trick, this time, a freaky one though.
