at . Comments

A few weeks ago, it leaked out that Neil Patrick Harris will be joining American Horror Story Season 4 for a special arc.

Today, TV Line reports that Harris will be bringing along a special guest... his husband David Burtka!

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka

Harris is a good friend of American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy and a huge fan of the series. Murphy invited him to be a part of all the fun via Twitter back in August, and Harris jumped! He had very specific ideas about what he wanted to do on the series, and Murphy worked with Harris to accommodate his wishes.

Harris will be playing a chameleon salesman in the final two episodes of Season 4, while Burtka will turn up in the finale in a provocative storyline with Jessica Lange, who plays Elsa, the Freak Show boss and wanna-be famous vocalist.

Good times, right?! 

Harris has worked with Murphy in the past. His guest-starring role on Glee Season 1 won him an Emmy for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. Will the second time be as mind-blowing? Stay tuned to find out.

American Horror Story Quotes

I am the queen of every hive. I am the fire on every hill. I am the shield over every head. I am the spear of battle. Who but I am both the tree and the lightning that strikes it?

The Butcher

We have two selves. One the world needs us to be, compliant, and the shadow. Ignore it and life is forever suffering.
