Of course Neil Patrick Harris is coming to American Horror Story, of course, of course. Since wrapping up How I Met Your Mother, NPH has been checking off his career to-do list: Writing a memoir, winning a Tony, taking a key role in Gone Girl, and signing a deal to host the Oscars. So it only makes sense that Harris will kick off 2015 by appearing on American Horror Story: Freak Show, aka American Horror Story: Let’s Just Cast Everybody This Season.

Harris will appear in the winter premiere as a new authority figure with a penchant for conjoined twins and ventriloquism, which makes him arguably the most normal character to appear on Freak Show. Watch the promo for Harris’ premiere episode:
