Neil Patrick Harris (born June 15, 1973), occasionally nicknamed [=NPH=], got his first big break as the title character of ''Series/DoogieHowserMD'' when he was a teenager. He managed to establish himself in theater (''Theatre/{{Rent}}'', Toby in ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'') after that, as well as taking roles in films such as ''Film/StarshipTroopers'' and ''Film/UndercoverBrother''. He took his career to the big screen again in 2004, playing... [[AsHimself Neil Patrick Harris]], a crude {{Jerkass}} womanizer in ''Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle'' (pretty much an UpToEleven version of the FormerChildStar stereotype). He then went on to play the part of the womanizing Barney Stinson in ''Series/HowIMetYourMother''. Shortly afterwards, he came out as gay, and proceeded to play a singing shoe fairy in a ''Series/SesameStreet'' cameo.

Of course, in Internet circles, he's probably most famous for his leading role in ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog''. He later used his musical talent to play TheMusicMeister in the MusicalEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' and plays ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood'', and again used his musical talent as Doctor Blowhole in ''WebVideo/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar''. He worked alongside Mike Nelson on the RiffTrax of ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory''. An episode of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' featured him as Prince Gumball, the {{gender flip}}ped version of [[BadassPrincess Princess Bubblegum]]. He's done some voice acting, lending his voice to Franchise/SpiderMan in both [[WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheNewAnimatedSeries the 2003 series]] and Amazing Spider-Man in ''VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions''. He is currently president of the Academy of Magical Arts (the famous "Magic Castle" in Hollywood, California). He is also the star of new ''Series/{{Nerdist}}'' web show, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLl4T6p7km9dbx0o8J35KjWAwaiEo5tV7G Neil's Puppet Dreams.]]'' For the 2015 TV season, he's hosting an American adaptation of [[Creator/AntAndDec Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway]], called ''Best Time Ever'' on Creator/{{NBC}}.
