Neil Patrick Harris, the hilarious Barney Stinson on "How I Met Your Mother," turns 39 today. NPH has made us laugh for the last 7 seasons of his show where he plays a womanizing and clever schemer. NPH was also a teen-hearthrob in the late '80s and early '90s in Doogie Howser M.D., when he played a teen prodigy and the youngest doctor in history. The show was his first big TV success. NPH will reprise his role as Barney when HIMYM returns again for season 8.
Hope you enjoy your birthday, Neil!
Suit up, NPH fans.
Your trusty editor's dream has come true. Part-time actor and full-time DILF Neil Patrick Harris is finally getting the star treatment he deserves. The longtime Hollywood regular has officially received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Hollywood Boulevard near the Pantages Theatre. Eep! Lucky number 2448.
For moral support, the actor was accompanied by How I Met Your Mother co-star & friend Jason Segel, as well as director Joss Whedon. The cult Hollywood writer had helped out Harris by writing/producing for the online musical series Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog', during the 2008 writers' strike. Whedon also spoke a few words with NPH when the actor received the huge honor.
