Things are about to get scary for Neil Patrick Harris and his new husband David Burtka – but in a good way!

Both Harris and Burtka will be featured in upcoming episodes of American Horror Story: Freak Show, TVLine has confirmed.

Newlywed Harris will appear in the 11th and 12th episodes of the Ryan Murphy drama as a “chameleon salesman” and Burtka will be featured in the 13th episode in a “sexy storyline” involving star Jessica Lange, according to the website.

And the casting appears to be a dream come true for the former How I Met Your Mother star.

“I wrote a letter to Ryan asking if I can be in it, even though I wasn’t even available to be in it,” the host of the upcoming Oscars told EW Radio in July. “To do one that involves any kind of freak, circus nonsense is going to be so unsettling to watch. Can’t wait!”
