A Collection of Videos Proving Neil Patrick Harris’s Awesomeness

nph1.jpg

I’m hard pressed to find another actor these days whose name is synonymous with “awesome” the way Neil Patrick Harris’s is. The man can practically do no wrong. He’s the very definition of entertainment through and through, whether he’s hosting the gayest of gay award shows or he’s getting laid by hot chicks in a stoner comedy. Shockingly enough, he’s done all this despite being a child actor, which is more often than not a kiss of death for the talented.

I’ve compiled a collection of excellent examples of NPH’s wide array of talents. Please enjoy.

The role that put NPH back on most people’s radar is when he appeared as a cracked out, womanizing version of himself.
