Neil Patrick Harris is a man of many talents and many more projects. But after rumors spread that Harris could potentially take over David Letterman’s The Late Showwhich Harris shot down—he revealed another project he’d be more interested in.

Harris stopped by EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) and talked to Mario Correa about his love of variety shows, freak shows, and therefore, the upcoming American Horror Story: Freak Show. In the clip, Harris confesses that he actually wrote co-creator Ryan Murphy a letter asking to be on the new show, because that’s how much he loves the series (and freaks). Sadly, Murphy hasn’t responded.


UPDATE: Ryan Murphy responded to Harris on Twitter, claiming that there is a role available if Harris wants it.
