Neil Patrick Harris has made no secret lately that he'd like a have some kind of a role in the enormously popular American Horror Story anthology series.

What the newly-named Oscar host had not made known until recently is that he and husband David Burtka had been asked to play a couple during the show's first season - the roles eventually played by Zachary Quinto and Teddy Sears.
