NPH – One of EW’s Entertainers of the Year

So Daddycatcher lamented over the exclusion of Neil Patrick Harris from the OUT 100 list in an earlier post.  However, Entertainment Weekly has announced their Top 25 Entertainers of the Year and NPH comes in at #25.

NPH is taking over the world.



Given his predilection for prestidigitation, is it too convenient to call 2008 a ”magical year” for Neil Patrick Harris? Maybe — he does now sit on the board of L.A.’s famed Magic Castle — but consider the evidence: He made an old-school star turn as the titular mad scientist in Joss Whedon’s wildly successful online musical Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. He continued to mine the self-parody gold of ”Neil Patrick Harris” in the Harold & Kumar franchise. He brought compelling depth to his role as Barney on CBS’ How I Met Your Mother. By year’s end, the 35-year-old had pulled off quite the trick: making the last remaining novelties of his Doogie childhood vanish as he blossomed into a versatile collaborator and an incredibly funny man. — Whitney Pastorek
