Neil Patrick Harris's Latest Role Brings Up 'Homophobic Insecurities' | Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris: Playing Hedwig on Broadway Is Bringing Up Insecurities

Originally posted 03/12/2014 12:50PM

If playing a flamboyant transgender punk rocker sounds out of character for Neil Patrick Harris, you've got company. The star himself admits his upcoming Broadway role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch pushes him outside of his comfort zone – but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

"Hedwig is bringing up a lot of super insecure things within me," the actor tells Out for its April cover story. "I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I've never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really." (Notable exception: he ably accepted the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year Award in drag in February, although he donned a more traditional tux while attending a gala for the group Monday night.)

"I've lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity – it’s why I like guys," he also tells the magazine. "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."

How I Met Your Mother Cast Dishes About Final Season – and What They'll Miss the Most

Originally posted 01/16/2014 06:55PM

With a handful of episodes left before the cast of How I Met Your Mother go their separate ways, Neil Patrick Harris acknowledges that it's a bittersweet time.

"We're saying the word 'last' a lot more than we ever did," he told PEOPLE on Wednesday during a Television Critics Association set visit. "We knew that it was going to come to an end, but we never really talked about the end, so this season has been filled with a lot of us saying, 'Oh.' "

As Harris and his castmates Cobie Smulders, Josh Radnor, Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan fielded questions from reporters, both of the actresses said, "You guys really want us to cry."

How TV Shows Have Hidden Stars's Pregnancies

Originally posted 11/14/2013 09:00AM

It's the baby news heard 'round the world: Kerry Washington is expecting her first child, and while we're excited for the actress, it leaves fans of Scandal scratching their heads about what Washington's bump means for Olivia Pope.

Producer Shonda Rimes has remained mum since Washington's October announcement about whether the pregnancy will be written into the show, but should she choose not to, there's plenty of past precedent to draw from on how to handle a star's changing shape, ranging from the subtle to the downright ridiculous.

Bryan Cranston to Return for How I Met Your Mother's Final Season

Originally posted 09/25/2013 04:30PM

There's another familiar face returning to How I Met Your Mother!

Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston will reprise his role as Ted Mosby's boss, Hammond Druthers, in an upcoming episode this season.

The actor, whose own AMC drama is set to conclude this weekend, previously appeared on the show in 2006 and 2007, where he served as Ted's superior at an architecture firm.

Though it remains to be seen in what capacity Ted (Josh Radnor) will have a run-in with his former foe, he is not the last guest star to cameo on the show for its final season.

What We Learned About the Mother on How I Met Your Mother

Originally posted 09/24/2013 03:15PM

Earlier this year, the audience finally met How I Met Your Mother's titular star, and on Monday's season nine premiere, one more person joined that elusive club – just not Ted himself.

Over the course of two back-to-back episodes, Ted's best friend Lily (Alyson Hannigan) met his dream woman on board a train headed to the fictional Farhampton, Long Island, where Robin (Cobie Smulders) and Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) are set to wed. It marked the first major scenes for actress Cristin Milioti, who made her debut as the much-anticipated mother in last May's season finale. As the show progresses towards its series finale in 2014, the audience will continue to learn more about Ted's as-yet unnamed wife-to-be, but in case you missed it, here's what we learned on Monday:

Emmy Host Neil Patrick Harris: My Kids Love Our Show Biz Lives

Originally posted 09/20/2013 09:15AM

Neil Patrick Harris and his fiancé David Burtka haven't specifically told their twins about their entertainment careers.

That said, Harris, 40, who is hosting Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, says their professional paths are pretty apparent because they've given their nearly 3-year-old little ones a very hands-on experience.

"I don't have any reason to tell them what we do for a living," the How I Met Your Mother funnyman told PEOPLE on Wednesday at an Emmy preview. "They've come to set. They know the crew. They got to come to the Tony rehearsals and watch the Cinderella dancers with all of their finest gownery and do their dancing, which was cool."
