Neil Patrick Harris stopped by EW Radio and geeked out with Mario Correa about variety shows, The Gong Show, and of course, freak shows. Apparently, when Harris found out that the next American Horror Story would be circus-themed, he asked Ryan Murphy if he could be on the show. "I wrote a letter to Ryan asking if I could be in it. Even though I wasn't even available to be in it," said Harris. "And he didn't respond." Fear not, NPH, Ryan Murphy has heard your cry! Last night Murphy tweeted:
@ActuallyNPH of course you can be on Freak Show! I have a role I think you'd love.— Ryan Murphy (@MrRPMurphy) July 18, 2014
The scheduling difficulty obviously involves the fact that Harris is currently engaged in his role as trans rocker Hedwig on Broadway, which ends August 17. Will that be enough time for him to join Dot and Bette?
