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.
Before Jason Segel went to the same college as Alyson Hannigan on How I Met Your Mother, they went to same college in Dead Man on Campus. He looks the same now as he did when he was 17 in that 1998 movie.
Cobie Smulders was on The Late Show tonight and she revealed that Craig Thomas and Carter Bays, who created How I Met Your Mother, knew that the show was going to end the way it since the pilot. So if you are pissed by how it ended, then know that it was always set to conclude that way.
I think it also explains why we didn’t meet the mother until the final season, they didn’t want us to get too attached to the woman they killed off without any explanation.
I hope that CBS picks up the creators new show How I Met Your Dad because I know I will not watch it. I have suffered through HIMYM ever since the smoking episode just to see how it would end. Now that we know what a depressing ending the show had, I am not going to torture myself and watch their new show that will be just as disappointing as the mothership.
How I Met Your Mother is mercifully coming to an on March 31st and the cast of the show were on The Late Show with David Letterman to reveal the Top 10 surprises we will see during the series finale. While some of them were lame like the last few seasons, I can totally see #2 happening. I just wish Lost would’ve done that because I still want to know what the hell that show was all about.
