We have seen Neil Patrick Harris do almost everything in the acting world, and Seth Meyers decided to test how well he is at all of them on Late Night. The NBC late host asked the Best Time Ever host to take part in the Actathalon Challenge which is an obstacle course of 10 different acting challenges. Those scenes included war, espionage, romantic comedy and action to name a few. It was the last one that I think was his best performance and that was promoting a bad movie he was in and making it sound great. He really nailed that one, but then again didn’t he have an experience like that when he had to promote Smurfs 2?
So how do I think NPH did in his Actathalon Challenge? He almost made me like again after the Oscars fiasco, and that takes a lot to make me forget about that. How do you think he did?
Neil Patrick Harris is a guest on CBS’s The Late Show tonight at 11:35p and his interview is shocking. To see why the more recent Oscar host was so shocked by it, you just have to watch to find out.
When you are done, don’t hold it against me! It is a slow Monday and this worked!
Back when Neil Patrick Harris was a teen, he was a stud with the ladies like Barney Stinson. His older brother had a party at their house and there were some girls there. They were all drinking wine coolers and playing Pass the Gum, when two girls said that they wanted to kiss him at the same time. Being a teenager, he was like hell yeah, but it didn’t go as well as he expected. He told Conan O’Brien, “I think in hindsight, weirdly, using angles, that both of their tongues were definitely in my mouth; but my tongue was between their cheeks.” Then he added, “I don’t remember, kind of going left to right. I remember being panicked and going straight forward.” Concluding his legen-waitforit-dary story with, “I think it was super fun for me and kind of disgusting for them.” What makes this story even more incredible is that this happened before he did Dougie Howser. So these girls who wanted him for him and not because he was the kid in Clara’s Heart, which still hadn’t come out at the time his heart was racing faster than sports car competing at NASCAR.
Back to Conan, the TBS late night host told the Oscar one that he envies him because he’s never made out with two women at the same time. To which NPH said, “Not yet, you haven’t.” I don’t think Conan’s wife would like that and Harris said, “She can watch!”
Poor Conan was not having a good day yesterday, first Madeline Albright put him in his place and then Neil Patrick Harris one-upped him. Oh well, we all have bad days. Maybe not Neil Patrick Harris, but others do!
Last week, it was announced that Neil Patrick Harris is going to host this year’s Oscars. Today we found out that he wasn’t the producers’ first choice. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron wanted Ellen DeGeneres back at the job, but she said no. Then they asked Chris Rock if he wanted to do it again and he too turned them down. The third choice is really random and thankfully Julia Louis-Dreyfus also wasn’t interested in hosting Hollywood’s biggest night. The first person who said yes was NPH, and now he gets the honor that three other people didn’t want.
Too bad, Kevin Spacey wasn’t higher on the list because I think he would be the perfect man for the Academy Awards.
I like Harris, but I am over him. I want someone new and exciting and I think Zadan and Meron should have held out a little longer before asking their fourth choice.
What do you think?
Neil Patrick Harris has hosted the Emmys, the Tonys and in 2015 he can add the Oscars to his resume. Take that Hugh Jackman, he’s now done one more bigger show than you.
A few years ago I would’ve been excited for this news, but now I am over him. I know he will do a great job, but it’s like been there, saw that. You know?
How do you feel about him MCing Hollywood’s biggest night?
Neil Patrick Harris is on The Late Show tonight and David Letterman asked Doogie Howser about his memoir that is coming out next month. It was then that the How I Met Your Mother star admitted he included the CBS late night host in the book and he thinks of him as a father figure.
Sounds innocent at first, but then he goes on. Harris then reads, “Only a sexy father. So suave, so rakishly handsome. A generous kisser, a generous lover.” Then he continues on as we wish he would, “You might expect him to be more selfish in bed, but no he is very thoughtful. He’s always tending to my needs first.” Then he wrapped it by saying, “The next time I’m on the show, I’m going to find some organic way to tell him how much I appreciate that.”
I think he succeeded. Not only in telling Letterman how he feels about him, but getting us to want to read Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography.
Ever since the producers of How I Met Your Mother Tweeted that there was an alternate ending to the crappy one that aired, we have wanted to see it. Well here it is, and it too is crappy. Not as crappy, but still crappy.
And they wonder why How I Met Your Mom didn’t get picked up. You are only as good as your last impression and their last impression was not a good one.
On a positive note, the HIMYM ending was still better than how Drop Dead Diva and Californication ended their runs. Although that is not saying much.
Neil Patrick Harris Tweeted this photo of himself sans his hole Hedwig and the Angry Inch costume, and there is nothing to be angry about in this picture. Seriously, how amazing does his body look after playing the lead role in the musical 8 shows a week for the last few months? It doesn’t even look like he has an angry inch of fat on him! Not that we can see the area where that inch is. I mean, we can barely see where it would be because there isn’t much we can’t see in the image.
Although, he needs to do a better job when it comes to putting on his makeup. I joke, because it looks like that from all the sweat and tears he shed during his Tony winning performance.
Before Italia Ricci was living with her mother and sister on Chasing Life, she was living with a friend on How I Met Your Mother. She looks the same now as she did when she was 22 in that 2009 episode.
People are still pissed at the ending to How I Met Your Dead Mother, I mean, How I Met Your Step-Mother, I mean, How I Met Your Mother ended on Monday that one of them came up with an alternate ending. Instead of having Ted Mosby’s kids tell their dad to go after Aunt Robin, they just ended it with him telling them how he met their mother. So that ending make you feel any better? I know I liked it better, but then again I am just happy the show was finally put of my misery three years after it should’ve been.
