While tomorrow marks the premiere date for “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” we are here today to write about something that is not going to be happening until much further down the road: A guest appearance from Neil Patrick Harris.
While the guest spot at the moment is not confirmed just yet, executive producer Ryan Murphy seems to be pretty confident about it at the moment. Just take a look at what he has to say to TVLine:
“I’m working on something and I’m hopefully going to talk to him about it next week. He’s game. He had very specific ideas for what he wanted to do, and I had very specific ideas, so we’re working on melding those. He’s awesome. He’s obviously one of our great entertainers, and I’d love to see him and Jessica Lange go at it in a really cool, fun way. Neil seems to be intrigued by that notion. We’re inching forward. Because of his schedule, we’d do it later in the run, maybe one episode, maybe two.”
If Murphy snags him, this would mark another great guest addition to a show who already has Matt Bomer stopping by, and so many great regulars including Michael Chiklis, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, and so many more. This is the lineup that most showrunners would pass away at, and it goes to show the amount of pull that Murphy has right now.
Also, we figure that many of these actors like the possibility of Emmy gold that they get from stopping by here.
