'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Set to Get Freakier with Casting News

This season of Ryan Murphy's "American Horror Story: Freak Show" gets better with each episode, so prepare to be dazzled when some new faces show up under the big top. TV Line announced yesterday that Neil Patrick Harris, along with his husband David Burtka, will be guest starring in this season of the dark, FX drama.

Harris will be appearing as a chameleon salesman in episodes 11 and 12, with Burtka showing up in episode 13 to bring a little steamy action to Elsa Mars. While it is absolutely thrilling that Harris and Burtka will be guest starring, my excitement shot through the roof upon learning a familiar face was being resurrected.

Lily Rabe will be returning to the American Horror Story realm as Sister Mary Eunice of Asylum. According to Entertainment Weekly, "The reason for Sister Mary’s return involves Pepper (Naomi Grossman) and how she ended up going from the freak show to Asylum‘s titular institution, Briarcliff. Rabe’s appearance will be on AHS‘ 10th episode, which is their big winter cliffhanger."

So come one, come all and enjoy the rest of the season on FX, Wednesday's at 10 p.m. ET. Wir Sind Alle Freaks!
