Los Angeles: Actor Neil Patrick Harris` is set to star in `Horror Story: Freak Show`.

The `How I Met Your Mother` actor told EW Radio that he penned a letter to the show`s co-creator Ryan Murphy asking him to be on the new season of the FX series, reports variety.com.

“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!” said Harris.

With `How I Met Your Mother` ending and his Broadway musical `Hedwig and the Angry Inch` closing in August, his schedule may have room for other projects.
