In the lead up to last night’s finale, the cast talked to CBS This Morning.
Alyson did an interview with HuffPost Live yesterday in which she talks about her cast members and how much they all love each other, and I won’t quote directly here in case some of you are still avoiding spoilers for the finale, but this article on EW has a cute little Neil story in it.
Neil has officially joined the cast of Seth MacFarlane’s new movie A Million Ways To Die In The West, joining an already announced cast that includes Amanda Seyfried and Charlize Theron.
Universal Pictures and Media Rights Capital (MRC) will co-finance Seth MacFarlane’s Western comedy A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST. Universal will distribute the film worldwide. A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST will be released on May 30, 2014 in North America.
MacFarlane directs, produces and co-writes A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST. He also plays the role of the sheep farmer (Albert) with an all-star cast that includes Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, Giovanni Ribisi and Neil Patrick Harris. The filmmaking team behind the hit film TED – producers Scott Stuber and Jason Clark and co-writers Wellesley Wild and Alec Sulkin – are reuniting with MacFarlane, Universal and MRC for the project.
After a cowardly sheep farmer backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend leaves him for another man. When a mysterious and beautiful woman rides into town, she helps him find his courage and they begin to fall in love. But when her husband, a notorious outlaw, arrives seeking revenge, the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.
While nothing is currently known about Neil’s role in the movie, he tweeted yesterday that he’s already spent at least one day on set:
If you saw Neil on Ellen last week, he talked about the awesome week long scavenger hunt birthday party that David organised for Neil a couple of months back. If you didn’t catch the interview, we’ve embedded the clip below. Here at NPH Fan we’ve been brainstorming about what to do for Neil’s 40th birthday, which is coming up on June 15th. Obviously Neil’s already had an awesome party, and he doesn’t need us to buy anything for him.
So our grand plan is to do a little charity fundraiser in Neil’s name. In just the time we’ve been running this site – five years in August – Neil has been part of so many charity events, hosted a lot of them, and even participating in gameshows to raising money and awareness for The Trevor Project, Stand Up 2 Cancer, Food On Foot and countless others. So we’re hoping that between us we can raise a little (or maybe a lot, if we’re very lucky!) for a charity that we know both Neil and David support.
We’re using Causes.com – a website that will allow you to donate and the money will go directly to the charity in question without any middle man or any reason for you to be wary of whether or not we’ll really pass the money on. We’ve chosen Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF).
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer is a charity set up to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer research. It all started when Alex Scott, a four year old girl from Connecticut who was suffering from Neuroblastoma, decided to hold a lemonade stand to raise money for the hospital that helped her during her treatment. Alex passed away in 2004 at the age of 8, having already raised over $1m for her cause, and ALSF continues that good work. You can read Alex’s story in full here, in her own words.
Our target is $500. Neil has almost 6 million followers on Twitter – if every one of those people gave just one dollar, he’d have the honour of $6m being raised in his name for an amazing charity. But we’re more realistic – while Neil has millions of followers, we don’t. We need you to spread the word. And if we can get just 500 of those 6 million people to donate a dollar – less than 0.01% of Neil’s total followers – we can do some great work.

Neil has officially been confirmed to return to host the 67th Annual Tony Awards, marking his fourth time hosting the show. This year’s ceremony takes place at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Sunday, June 9 (8:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network.
“I’m very excited to be back hosting the Tony Awards at the legendary Radio City Music Hall. It’ll be more impressive than ever – if my math is correct, it will be 267 times bigger than last year,” said Neil Patrick Harris. “Oh, wait. No, that can’t… hold on… carry the one… I’m awful at math. But rest assured, the show will rock!”
“Neil is a multi-talented performer whose showmanship, wit and energy command the stage of live events,” said Nina Tassler, President of CBS Entertainment. “He is a master of ceremony, who truly loves celebrating the performing arts with the highest level of entertainment, and it’s quite obvious to the audience he’s having a lot of fun along the way.”
“We are thrilled that Neil will be joining us, once again, at Radio City Music Hall to host ‘The 67th Annual Tony Awards,’ said Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League and Heather Hitchens, Executive Director of the American Theatre Wing. “Neil’s creativity and passion for Broadway shines through when he is on the stage and off – and we cannot wait to see what surprises Neil will have up his sleeves!
Neil will be on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this Thursday, May 9th. Also on the show will be Beth Behrs, star of CBS hit 2 Broke Girls. The show is syndicated so airs at different times and on different networks – you can check your local listings at the Ellen show site here.
Then, he’s charming, he’s hilarious, and he’s handsome to boot!

Back in January 2010, the cast and crew of HIMYM stopped by the Paley Center to participate in a panel celebrating the show’s 100th episode. Those videos have never been made available to watch online until now, thanks to Reserve Channel.

The Huffington Post have published an interview with Neil, talking about the Puppet Dreams series from conception to execution.
In the episode “To Catch a Puppeteer,” you spoof “To Catch a Predator.” What else deserves a puppet parody?
We liked the idea of doing Madonna’s “Papa Don’t Preach” and calling it “Puppet Don’t Preach” with a shot-for-shot reenactment with puppets, but I’m not sure we can afford the rights to Madge’s music.
THE LATE LATE SHOW with CRAIG FERGUSON will present a special edition titled “THE CRAIG FERGUSON SUPER BOWL SPECIAL” from New Orleans, Sunday, Feb. 3 (approximately 11:35 PM – 12:37 AM in most markets, following local news) on the CBS Television Network as part of the Network’s SUPER BOWL XLVII lineup.

Neil has appeared on a number of television gameshows playing for money for charity, along with supporting many other charities in one way or another (attending telethons or galas, hosting events or just by helping them spread the word). These are just some of the great causes he has supported over the years.
