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!
After three pot-driven films, the adventures of Harold & Kumar may have potentially reached a milestone and get their own animated series!
Sure, they're no Beavis & Butt-head (despite their awesome return to MTV a couple of weeks ago!). but we have loved the duo ever since their munchies-induced trek to White Castle.
A source close to the project claims that Lionsgate is pitching the series and networks such as MTV & Comedy Central were just some of the companies showing their interest. The potential project is far from receiving the greenlight, but Deadline reports that returning actors John Cho and Kal Penn are signed on to voice the titular protagonists along with the film trilogy's writers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg. No word yet on the return of the occasional Neil Patrick Harris cameo, though he most likely would. After all, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle was what brought his career back to life in 2004.
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.
This is like a Teenage Dream for many fans...
The pop star Katy Perry will guest star on the show's February 7 episode.
Nothing much is known about this episode except that Russell Brand's beloved one will play the role of Honey and will try to help Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) with his women addiction...
This is not the first collaboration between Perry and Harris: they've shooted together the live action film The Smurfs that will be released in theatres on August 3rd.
Be ready for a Firework...

Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls, and this year's winner of Dancing with the Stars, has joined the cast of Rent. She will play the role of Maureen in the L.A. summer production of the musical. The show is directed by actor Neil Patrick Harris, who recently had a guest spot on Glee. I'm sure the two celebrities will not disappoint Broadway fans.
Hopefully by now everyone has seen Bret Michaels “prop mishap” at the Tony Awards on Sunday, June 7. I know this may sound mean and cold-hearted, but let’s be real, it was really funny. This rocker was at his prime 20 years ago when Poison was arguably one of the most popular rock bands of its time. But now he has turned into somewhat of a joke, starring in three seasons of the VH1 reality show, Rock of Love to find his “true-love”. Supposedly he is vying for a legit comeback, going on a solo tour this month and and is scheduled to tour with the rest of Poison and Def Leppard. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on the person) his legitimacy was crushed (like his face was) when a moving set piece smacked him in the head. Within minutes the video was on Youtube becoming an instant internet fixation, with millions of people laughing at Michaels’s misfortune.
Last night, the 2009 Tony Awards were filled with suspense, laughs, surprises, and an injured star?
Hosted by Neil Patrick Harris better known as "NPH", the "How I Met Your Mother" co-star proved to be anything short of hilarious. He closed the show with a singing number poking fun at the ceremony and its' winners, in a satirical performance to a West Side Story like tune. The award show also featured performances by Elton John, Dolly Parton and original Broadway casts such as Billy Elliot, Hair, and Guys and Dolls; but it was in the opening act where something went completely awry. Bret Michaels, lead singer of Poision, suffered a blow to the head by the descending stage scenery while performing with the cast of Rock of Ages. The audience didn't know whether to laugh or call an ambulance, but NPH, of course, gave some comedic relief to the situation in his opening monologue, by proclaiming Michaels as "Giving a whole new meaning to head-banging!" Rumors flying about a possible broken nose seem to be false, but nevertheless, this rock star added a dangerous edge to an ever-so stagnant award ceremony.
Just one month ago, California voters passed Prop 8 which banned same-sex marriages. Protesters including disenfranchised gays and lesbians, many already married, flooded the streets of L.A., picketing and denouncing the state’s vote. Yesterday though, Hollywood heavyweights joined hands in song to show their feelings about the ordeal.
