Neil Patrick Harris Unleashes His Inner Freak In New ‘American Horror Story’ Promo

And he's got one killer role.

Finally! Neil Patrick Harris' mystery character on "American Horror Story: Freak Show" is revealed in a brand new promo for the FX series, returning to screens in the new year on January 7.

Previously, the only detail about Harris' role was that he would play a "chameleon salesman" in the final two episodes this season. But judging from the preview, he is so, so much more.

So, let's talk about Chester: In the beginning of the clip, Elsa (Jessica Lange) tells her troupe that Harris' Chester is the new owner of the show. He takes a liking to the twins Bette and Dot (Sarah Paulson), flattering them with a whole lot of sweet talk. But uh, Chester also seems to have a strange infatuation with a ventriloquist dummy that "relaxes" him. Say, what?


Chester isn't just a carney-loving salesman though--he's one of the pack! During the clip Chester puts on a magician act that seemingly ends in total bloodbath. Who's getting the axe -er- saw!?

Harris will appear in episodes 11 and 12, while his husband, David Burtka, will also guest star on the season finale.
