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 Podcast/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}}.

On August 21, 2010 he won his first Emmy awards thanks to his stellar guest appearance on ''Series/{{Glee}}'' and awesome hosting of last year's Tony Awards. After four years hosting the Tony's, on June 8, 2014 Neil [[UpToEleven took it up to eleven]] by [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome winning the Best Actor in a Musical Tony]] for his performance in the title role of a botched-sex-change transgender glam-rock goddess in ''HedwigAndTheAngryInch''. He hosted the [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscars]] in 2015 and promptly declared, afterwards, that it would be his only time.

Not to be confused with [[Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle Christopher Masterson]] (the actor who played older brother Francis on ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle''), who [[http://totallylookslike.icanhascheezburger.com/2010/08/20/christopher-masterson-neil-patrick-harris/ looks very similar to him.]]

* CareerResurrection: Though he was never completely off the radar, [[TheNineties the period]] between Doogie and H&K were a pretty thin stretch for Neil outside of maybe ''Film/StarshipTroopers''.



* IronyAsSheIsCast: He is an openly gay actor most well-known for playing [[Series/HowIMetYourMother an impulsive]] [[Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle womanizer]], though notably he wasn't openly out until after he was cast.
* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Although known for playing a crude, obnoxious womanizer, he is a very nice actor who is openly and proudly gay and a family man in real life.
* OneOfUs: Loves ''StarWars'' so much they worked it into his character on ''Series/HowIMetYourMother''; is a public and lifelong fan of musicals and comic books; and publicly admitted in his Doogie Howser days that he never, ''ever'', missed an episode of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. Hell, he even made a guest appearance on Podcast/RiffTrax!
** During an interview in the Spike Video Game Awards (in which he was host), he noted that he was a fan of ''VideoGame/KatamariDamacy''.
* PromotedFanboy: A life-long [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] fan, he's on the Podcast/RiffTrax ([=MST3K=]'s online successor) for ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory''.

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.
