30 October 2014 2:07 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Patrick Harris, best known for his role as Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother, has joined the cast of American Horror Story: Freak Show. He will appear in Freak Show’s 11th and 12th episodes as a chameleon salesman, while his real life husband David Burtka will turn up in the season finale for “a sexy storyline with Jessica Lange’s batty chanteuse.”

Ryan Murphy, the co-creator of the show, has worked with Neil Patrick Harris in the past and have been looking to work together again. Murphy said a few months ago about a collaboration with Harris on Freak Show: “He had very specific ideas for what he wanted to do, and I had very specific ideas, so we’re working on melding those.”

Neil Patrick Harris is returning back to TV for sure now. The funny man has officially joined the horror based series American Horror Story, which is a show that took the world by storm.
