Neil Patrick Harris Takes on the Actathalon Challenge On LATE NIGHT

Comments Off on Neil Patrick Harris Takes on the Actathalon Challenge On LATE NIGHT

There should be no doubt that Neil Patrick Harris is a very, very talented actor. But when Harris was on LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS, he was put through an insane kind of skills test: in the “actathalon,” Harris went through eight different scenes — including a rom-com meet-cute; a chase scene; a tearful goodbye to his son; and an actor promoting an absolutely terrible movie — in about five minutes.

Not only is the sequence funny to watch, but it’s also really impressive (and probably a good sign for Harris’ upcoming NBC variety series, BEST TIME EVER)…

himym-featured

After nine seasons on the air, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER is pulling a stunt with tonight’s episode that it has never tried before: the entire thing will be in rhyme.

“[It’s] super fun, and I just thought it was such an imaginative episode,” Josh Radnor (Ted) told reporters on set last week. “It’s a great episode. Super weird. Never been done on television.”

And while it may seem like it would be a nightmare to try and make the logistics of the episode work out, HIMYM co-creator Carter Bays noted it was “so much easier [to write] than it seemed. To the point that what was difficult was writing the next episode and not being able to rhyme.”

Comments Off on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER: Cobie Smulders and Neil Patrick Harris Tease Robin and Barney’s Wedding

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER fans have known since the end of season 6 that the show was leading up to Barney’s wedding (at the time, the bride was a mystery, until it was revealed a season later that, yep, he was marrying Robin), and now that the ninth — and final — season is upon us, the series will be spending the year revolving around the big day.

At Comic-Con, Cobie Smulders (Robin) and Neil Patrick Harris (Barney) talked with reporters about the wedding, and how the bride and groom are doing in the season premiere…

The Best of Neil Patrick Harris on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE

My love for all things Neil Patrick Harris have been well documented here on this site.  But after last night’s hosting gig of SNL, my love has only grown.  I had not doubt that Neil was going to be fantastic, but he so committed to each and every skit that he really stood out as one of the best hosts in quite some time.

I was surprised that with the exception of the brief ‘Seasons of Love’ chorus, Neil didn’t sing.  Missed opportunity.  Oh well, next time.  And I am 100% certain there will be a next time.

Here are a few of my favorite skits from last night…

Neil Patrick Harris Saves Broadway
My inner theater geeked absolutely loved this skit featuring some of Broadway’s biggest stars trying to save the Great White Way.  Neil as RENT’s Mark was great.  I wish I had seen NPH when he played that role on Broadway.

Perhaps the “legendary” joke has been played out, but the awesomeness of Neil Patrick Harris will never be.  As we told you about way back in December, Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend.

UPDATE: To watch Neil Patrick Harris hosting SNL click here: The Best of Neil Patrick Harris on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE



I can’t remember a time when I have been more excited for SNL.  I think Neil is going to be a natural.  And of course he’s going to sing…he has to, right?  What other skits might Neil take on this weekend?

A few possibilities…

  • A Doogie Howser Skit – Doogie is all grown up and has become an alcoholic, womanizing under achiever.
  • A HIMYM Skit – Barney hitting on Kristen Wiig’s Aunt Linda.
  • A Dr. Horrible Skit – In my dreams.

What else might the man of many talents be taking on this weekend.  I’m really starting to geek out.
