It’s almost as tough to name all nine seasons of “American Horror Story” as it is to name the Brady Brunch’s six children (some of us have a mental block when it comes to Greg). “Murder House,” “Asylum,” “Coven,” “Freak Show,” “Hotel,” “Roanoke,” “Cult,” “Apocalypse,” and “1984” are all familiar to “AHS” viewers. 

Only Ryan Murphy’s most ardent admirers, however, can name all of the performers who have appeared in the horror anthology series. The series has featured everyone from Billy Porter and Lady Gaga to Cuba Gooding Jr. and Gus Kenworthy.

Is it really possible to call yourself an actor if you haven’t participated in either “American Horror Story” or the Marvel Cinematic Universe? 

However, not everyone who has been offered a part on “AHS” has taken it. Murphy had approached one well-known couple, offering them roles in the show’s first season, but they declined.

Ryan Murphy Was Turned Down By Neil Patrick Harris And David Burtka.

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, who married in 2014, were interested in working together. Burtka appeared in Harris’ long-running comedy “How I Met Your Mother” many times after they met in 2003. Burtka and Harris previously appeared as fake versions of themselves in 2011’s “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas.”

In fact, “Harold & Kumar” was the reason they passed on “AHS.” Ryan Murphy wanted the pair to play the previous owners of the haunted house who were slaughtered by the Rubber Man in “Murder House.”

After playing a dysfunctional couple in the third “Harold & Kumar” film, Harris and Burtka agreed that playing another dysfunctional couple in the same year would be too repetitive (per Entertainment Weekly). Zachary Quinto and Teddy Sears would finally be cast in the roles. 

Fans of Harris and Burtka will not have to wait long to see them on the show. Harris played a magician obsessed with his ventriloquist dummy in the fourth chapter of the series, “Freak Show,” while Burtka featured in a cameo as a Hollywood casting executive.
