Neil Patrick Harris Talks About His Wedding, Stripping Down for Hedwig and Gone Girl (VIDEO)

Originally posted 09/30/2014 09:20AM

Neil Patrick Harris achieved a rare Late Show hat trick Monday night.

The actor was on hand to promote his role in Gone Girl as well as discuss his memoir Choose Your Own Autobiography, but talk quickly turned to his own Italian wedding, which took place earlier this month at a castle near Perugia. ("Take that, George Clooney!" Harris said kiddingly.)

The ceremony featured a performance by Elton John, who also introduced Harris and David Burtka's first dance – soundtracked to Kelly Clarkson's "A Moment Like This," it featured an expertly timed fireworks display.

How I Met Your Mother's New DVD Set Has Alternate Ending – and a Surprise!

Originally posted 09/22/2014 08:00AM

Many viewers found How I Met Your Mother's maudlin season finale last March anything but legendary. (As PEOPLE noted, it was ceme – wait for it – tery.)

But fans of the show may be happier with an unseen – and far more upbeat – version contained in a new DVD box set available Tuesday.

Without spoiling it, let's just say the "alternate ending" of the finale, "Last Forever," will cause tears of joy instead of grief. (Although, unfortunately, it still contains Lily's tragic bangs of 2016.)

What If MTV Ran the Emmy Awards?

What If MTV Ran the Emmy Awards?

Originally posted 08/20/2014 07:10PM

To avoid a conflict with Sunday Night Football, NBC moved the 2014 Emmy Awards telecast up a month, to August 25. But in swerving clear of the football juggernaut, the Emmys steered right into the lane of the landmark cultural occasion of late August: the MTV VMAs, scheduled for one day prior.

It got us thinking: What if we took things to their logical conclusion and handed MTV control of the Emmys, as well?

Using categories from both the VMAs and their summertime counterpart, the MTV Movie Awards, we've imagined what would happen if the cable network was in charge of handing out trophies for everything that's on TV, not just music videos.

Massive spoilers below!

How I Met Your Mother Star Cristin Milioti Returning to TV in NBC Rom-Com

Originally posted 05/12/2014 09:20PM

Miss How I Met Your Mother? NBC is bringing actress Cristin Milioti (The Mother) back to the small screen this fall for another adorable comedy about how love stands the test of time.

A to Z, executive-produced by Rashida Jones, tells the story of Andrew (Mad Men's Ben Feldman), a hopeless romantic who works at an online dating service. He tries to hide his cheesiness, belting Céline Dion in the comfort of his car and learning how to hit on women with a coworker. But when he meets the straight-laced Zelda (Milioti), he realizes he's seen her before: shimmering in a silver dress at a concert in 2012.

The show follows Andrew and Zelda's relationship from start to finish – as the title cutely puts it, from A to Z. Watch the trailer below.

Meg Ryan is getting back into acting, but as befits her more private life these days, it's an off-camera role.

Ryan, 52, has signed up to be the narrator of How I Met Your Dad, the upcoming spin-off of CBS's just-concluded How I Met Your Mother, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Much as Bob Saget provided the voice of future Ted in the original series, Ryan will be unseen as the voice of future Sally, whose present, on-camera self will be portrayed by Greta Gerwig.
