The couple will appear in the final two episodes of Freak Show, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
Comedian and actor Neil Patrick Harris will be featured in the last two episodes of season four as a chameleon salesman, while husband David Burtka will appear in the finale in a role intertwined with freak show boss Elsa Mars’ (Jessica Lange) story.
The announcement comes after Harris expressed interest in a guest gig in the hit anthology series.
“He’s game; he had very specific ideas about what he wanted to do and I have specific ideas. We’re working on melding those,” Murphy told reporters in October, noting that if it does happen, it would be later in the season to accommodate Harris’ busy schedule. “I’d love to see him and Jessica Lange go at it in a really fun way and Neil seems intrigued by that notion. We’re inching forward.”
