Everyone stop what you're doing! We have some HUGE news!
The only question that remains is: will he accept the offer???
“I wrote a letter to Ryan asking if I can be in it, even though I wasn't even available to be in it. To do one that involves any kind of freak, circus nonsense is going to be so unsettling to watch. Can't wait!”
At the time of NPH's interview, he mentioned Ryan Murphy had NOT replied to his letter, but the creator of American Horror Story recently replied on Twitter and his answer was music to everyone's ears! Here's what he tweeted:
@ActuallyNPH of course you can be on Freak Show! I have a role I think you'd love.

Although NPH had originally mentioned that he probably wouldn't even be available to do it - we're hoping the ah-mazing actor has more free time now that How I Met Your Mother has finished its run.
Somehow these two have to make it work because now that the idea has been planted we would be SO upset if it didn't actually go down!!!
Please, guys! Figure this out!
The whole world is counting on y'all making this happen!!!
