* OneOfUs:
** Loves ''Franchise/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''.
** His family's Halloween costumes include characters from ''Franchise/StarWars'' and ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'', with him as Obi-Wan and the Riddler respectively.

* 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''.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* PromotedFanboy: A life-long [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] fan, he's on the Podcast/RiffTrax ([=MST3K=]'s online successor) for ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory''. In the 2017 relaunch of [=MST3K=], he plays Creator/FeliciaDay's long-distance love interest.


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 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, ''[[https://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 ''Theatre/HedwigAndTheAngryInch''. He hosted the [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscars]] in 2015 and promptly declared, afterwards, that it would be his only time.
