Encore!

They Nailed It!

Attention theatre nerds and “How I Met Your Mother” fans, alike. Gather ‘round, my children and see what happened on Thursday night’s episode of “Inside The Actor’s Studio.” In honor of the series finale of “HIMYM” and the Broadway revival of the legendary “Les Mis,” Jason Segel and Neil Patrick Harris performed an impromptu version of “The Confrontation” with Segel singing the part of Jean Valjean and NPH as Javert. Most impressive: they did it a cappella. They are true performers. I feel like this could happen for real. [People]

Starring In “Hedwig And The Angry Inch” Is Bringing Up All Sorts Of “Homophobic Insecurities” For Neil Patrick Harris

Starring-In-'Hedwig-And-The-Angry-Inch'-Is-Bringing-Up-All-Sorts-Of-'Homophobic-Insecurities'-For-Neil-Patrick-Harris

“Hedwig is bringing up a lot of super insecure things within me. I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I’ve never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really. I’ve lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity — it’s why I like guys. I’m not a super effete person, and I have to turn into that, and in doing so it brings up a lot of homophobic insecurities within myself.”

Neil Patrick Harris talks about starring in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on Broadway and much, much more in this Out Magazine cover interview. You can always count on NPH to say interesting and provocative things, whether it be that drinking pineapple juice makes him “feel tropical” and makes his “semen taste delicious,” or that playing a character who dresses in drag is triggering his internalized homophobia. “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is one of my all-time favorite plays, and when it ran off-Broadway the first time, I saw it 11 times because it was just so gripping and multi-dimensional for a one-man musical. I agree with creator James Cameron Mitchell, NPH is the ideal person to play the role. I can’t wait to see it. [Out]

Ever since Amy Poehler and Will Arnett split up (must … hold … back … tears), Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka have ascended the throne to become my #1 Top Favorite Hollywood Couple. Their relationship seems genuine, respectful, and playful, and seeing them with their adorable twins Gideon and Harper make me wish they were my dads. Oh, and did I mention they’re both mad stylish? I’m loving the tailored suits and plaid ties they wore to the White House Christmas Tree Lighting in DC this week. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Republican Kelly Clarkson Says She’s Voting For Obama — And 18 Other Celebrity Endorsements

‘Tis the season for celebrity political endorsements, and just yesterday comes another one — this time from Kelly Clarkson. Kelly says that while she considers herself a Republican, she can’t abide by Mitt Romney’s anti-gay marriage stance, and has decided to support Obama. Additionally, she said, “I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again … I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married.”

Additionally, she voiced concern over women’s rights issues. “I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the ’50s,” she said.

Last year, Clarkson voiced her support for Ron Paul, but then retracted it after it was found that Paul was linked to several racist and homophobic pamphlets. “I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights,” she said.

  • Neil Patrick Harris and his boyfriend/baby daddy, David Burtka, cover OUT magazine’s annual “Love Issue” and, well, they’re just adorable. Writes NPH in the piece: “I’m not the biggest fan of the word ‘partner’: It either means that we run a business together or we’re cowboys. ‘Boyfriend’ seems fleeting, like maybe we met two weeks ago. I’ve been saying ‘better half’ for as long as I’ve been able to. I think it’s a little self-deprecating and clearly defines that we’re in a relationship, but it would be nice to say ‘my husband.’” [OUT Magazine]

Neil Patrick Harris’ Life Advice: Keep Catching Waves

“Right when ‘Doogie Howser, M.D.’ was beginning, [the show's creator] took my parents and me to a restaurant, sat us down, and said, ‘A career is like surfing. You paddle out and paddle out and get wet and hit by these waves. When you finally get out where you’re supposed to go, you have to sit on a surfboard for a long time, just waiting. If you’re really lucky, you’ll catch a wave, and it’ll be the most amazing feeling. But the key is that that wave will inevitably crash to the sand. Then what you have to do is paddle back out and get hit by a bunch of waves again. But trust that in the long term there will always be waves to catch.’ To a young family from New Mexico, you can imagine our reaction: ‘What the hell is surfing?’ But thinking back, it was a very impressive thing to hear as a kid and, as it turns out, absolutely accurate … It’s good to have a lot of once-in-a-lifetimes in your lifetime. If you get the chance to skydive, go skydiving. If you’re offered a part in a weird Shakespeare play in San Diego, slap on some tights and rock out some iambic pentameter. If you’re offered the opportunity to have a swastika painted on your ass, glitter on your nipples, and to simulate sex with a man and a woman behind a curtain, go for it… provided it’s ‘Cabaret’ on Broadway and not in some dude’s basement.”

Neil Patrick Harris shares with Entertainment Weekly his advice for making it in Hollywood over and over again. But, I really think these are great words of wisdom for anyone in almost any field. I am appointing Neil as my life coach. I hope he takes checks. [EW] Keep reading »
