Neil Patrick Harris

by Alex Moaba, posted Dec 2nd 2011 3:00PM
Maya Rudolph's been trying to tell people for months that her 'Up All Night' character Ava, who just so happens to be a flight talk show host, isn't a re-imagining of her famous 'SNL' Oprah impression. But Friday on 'Live!' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), at the behest of guest-host Neil Patrick Harris, Rudolph and Kelly Ripa broke out their dueling Oprah impersonations for an 'Oprah-Off.'

Rudolph started off the competition by announcing a fake audience giveaway that would make Snooki proud. "Today, we're giving away ... pickles!!" she exclaimed, as the audience cheered wildly. Ripa followed up with, "You get a pickle, and you get a pickle and you get a pickle," and got some feedback from Rudolph on her impression.

NPH and Kelly Ripa Inhale Sulfur Hexafluoride, Get Hilariously Deep Voices (VIDEO)

Everybody knows that inhaling Helium will give you a temporarily high voice and make you sound like Pee-wee Herman. Today on 'Live!' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) Kelly Ripa and guest-host Neil Patrick Harris demonstrated the inverse scientific effect. They had on Science Expert Bob, who came carrying a canister of Sulfur Hexafluoride, a chemical gas that makes your voice hilariously deep.

Bob filled each host up a balloon, and when Harris asked if it was dangerous, Bob could only reply, "Okay, let's do it." Things got pretty entertaining after they inhaled, as they each launched into movie quotes fitting their newly baritone voices. Kelly went to 'Star Wars,' quoting "Luke, I am your Father," while NPH went with a slightly darker reference. "It puts the lotion in the basket," he said, quoting Buffalo Bill from 'Silence of the Lambs.' After that, they burst out in laughter and pretended to be addicted to the stuff.

Betty White InterviewBetty White is kissing and telling.

The 'Hot In Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land) star planted a wet one on Neil Patrick Harris on 'Live! With Kelly' -- video is below -- and now she's revealing all about that instant-classic daytime kiss.

"Oh yes, a very good kisser," White said of the 'How I Met Your Mother' star's smooching skills in a red-carpet interview with AOL TV. "Not that I go around doing the research, but that's not a bad idea."

On 'Hot In Cleveland,' now in its third season, White plays Elka, the cantankerous caretaker of the home now occupied by Joy (Jane Leeves), Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli) and Victoria (Wendie Malick).

Neil Patrick Harris Sneaks a Kiss From Betty White (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 29th 2011 12:30PM
Yesterday, 'Live! With Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) guest-host and 'How I Met Your Mother Star' Neil Patrick Harris joked that he wanted to make out with Betty White. On Tuesday he got his chance, as the 89-year-old comedienne stopped by 'Live' in advance of the 'Hot in Cleveland' Season 3 premiere (Wed., Nov. 30 at 10PM ET on TV Land.)

The two talked about a potential White 'HIMYM' cameo that never came to be. Before White's late-career resurgence, Harris wanted White to guest-star on the show as sexy cougar that his character Barney Stinson would hook up with. White shared that she was thrilled after getting a call from a 'HIMYM' producer asking her to be on an episode, but never heard back about it.

To make up for the missed opportunity, Harris asked White for a kiss on the cheek. When she leaned in, he turned his face around snuck one on the lips. Something tells us she didn't mind.

How I Met Your Mother, Subway WarsIn honor of today's release of 'How I Met Your Mother: The Complete Sixth Season' on DVD and Blu-ray, AOL TV has an exclusive clip from one of the set's extra features.

In the 'Subway Wars' episode, the gang raced from the Upper West Side to Tribeca (for you non-New Yorkers, that's a short distance, mile-wise, but a long distance when you're in a city crowded with 8 million people) using their preferred method of transportation: Lily took the subway, Ted took the bus, Marshall ran, Robin hailed a cab and Barney ... ate a steak, faked a heart attack and cruised in an ambulance.

Check out the clip below for a behind-the-scenes look at Neil Patrick Harris filming the episode, plus his thoughts on why Barney's way downtown was the best.

It Didn't Go So Well When Neil Patrick Harris Met President Obama (VIDEO)

Neil Patrick Harris, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Meeting someone with the stature of the President of the United States is one of those moments you kind of need to mentally prepare for. That could be why things were a little awkward when Neil Patrick Harris met Barack Obama recently, as he detailed on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC).

NPH was hosting an event "about LGBT stuff" for the DNC, and there was a line for photo ops with President Obama. Harris was moving through the room, getting ready to get back on stage and continue with his next part of the show when he was ushered around a curtain.

"You turn around a curtain and there's the freaking president of the United States," he said. "And you quickly panic because, what do you say?"

Neil Patrick Harris Describes a Circus Move Stephen Colbert Showed Him (VIDEO)

Neil Patrick Harris, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'First of all, Jon Stewart paid a genuine compliment to Stephen Colbert on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). That's shocking alone, but the image Neil Patrick Harris created when describing a circus spin move Colbert knows was just as unexpected.

Colbert knows how to do "the spin move" -- which involves two people jumping up into his arms and then him spinning in a circle -- and after hearing both Harris and Stewart describe it we demand to see him perform this move for ourselves.

According to Stewart, "Two more years, he throws out a hip" doing this move, so we'll need to see it as soon as possible. Colbert is sure to watch this episode, because he'll want to clip out the bit where Stewart calls him "a multi-talented individual."

Andy Cohen Finally Tells 'Real Housewives of NYC' to 'Shut the F*** Up! (VIDEO)

Neil Patrick Harris, 'Watch What Happens: Live'While you didn't get to see it on the reunion special for 'The Real Housewives of New York City,' Andy Cohen revealed the moment he truly lost it during taping of the special on 'Watch What Happens: Live' (Mon., 11:30PM ET on Bravo).

We think he probably deserves a medal anyway for trying to herd those women through proper conversations. They talk over one another so much and jump up so often yelling like they're on 'Jerry Springer,' it's a nearly impossible task. And this time, it just got to be too much.

"This time, ladies and gentlemen, they broke me," Cohen said before revealing the clip. In it, after several tries to get the women to all stop talking he finally yelled at them to "Shut the f*** up!"

Something we've wanted to do on multiple occasions each week during the show. It's fair to say we're actually jealous of Cohen now that he got to do it!

Neil Patrick Harris Reveals a Magic Trick Gone Wrong We Never Saw (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 19th 2011 5:34AM
Neil Patrick Harris, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'The last thing a magician ever wants is for a trick to go wrong. It immediately damages their credibility, and in a worst-case scenario, can reveal how the trick is done, destroying the illusion of "magic." Neil Patrick Harris didn't have to worry about the latter, but he revealed a well-kept incident when things didn't go well on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

In this case, it was more of a mechanical failure, but Jay Leno and 'The Tonight Show' staff had cleverly edited out the entire segment, possibly because it was the staff that had pressured Harris into doing it when he started worrying something might go wrong.

But don't worry about NPH: He told Popeater little Gideon and Harper (with partner David Burtka) sleep 11 hours a night. We talked with the universally loved 'Doogie Howser' alum about what to expect during the show ("There will be the inevitable 'Spider-Man' jokes"), why he chose to raise his kids in the big city and he reveals details about the 'Smurfs' flick and how playing a coked-up hooker-lover changed his life forever.
