If you need another reminder that Neil Patrick Harris is a national treasure, then maybe his turn as a glam-rock, transgender singer in Hedwig and the Angry Inch will change your mind.
The showed opened on Broadway last night to rave reviews, especially for NPH himself. As Ben Brantley said in the New York Times, “Mr. Harris is in full command of who he is and, most excitingly, what he has become with this performance. That’s a bona fide Broadway star, the kind who can rule an audience with the blink of a sequined eyelid.” Read More »
From Los Angeles to New York, from a goofy friend to a down-on-her-luck transsexual, Neil Patrick Harris has been making a lot of changes lately.
After the final season of How I Met Your Mother, Neil recently began starring in the Broadway musical Hedwig And The Angry Inch. Since he plays a transsexual rocker in the show, his hair and make up takes nearly two hours to get right, and his toddler twins, Gideon and Harper, have a lot to say about it.
Neil recently appeared on Good Morning America and talked about the twins reactions. “Gideon and Harper did come to the dressing room and see me getting made up. They think it’s hilarious. Harper loves the glitter. They both like the nail polish so they think all of that is very funny.” Read More »

I mean, I can’t just give you everything all at once. But I can say that Neil’s portraits for Annie Leibovitz in the latest issue of Vanity Fair are spectacular.
Also, it’s not just any snake. It’s a boa constrictor.

A man with a nice smile is a great man in my book. Both James Franco and his younger brother, Dave Franco, have amazing, mega-watt smiles.
The older Franco recently had cause for celebration: opening an art exhibit in New York.
Interesting photos of the man are on display, including ones of him in drag. Anyone who visits is surely in for a treat. What has drawn more buzz as of late career-wise would have to be his Broadway debut. Read More »
Well hello there Mr. Daniel Radcliffe. Look at you working your best serious face.
The actor was busy showing off his modeling skills in DuJour Magazine. Look at those eyes. Look at the way they’re staring into your soul and telling you everything will be OK.
So the thing I love about Daniel–aside from his soul-piercing eyes–is that he’s constantly taking his post-Harry Potter career into new and interesting directions. Like all the theatre he’s doing; it’s amazing. Read More »

Last night was quite a who’s who of my favorite people in Hollywood, all coming together to celebrate one of my favorite musicals.
Celebrities hit the red carpet in New York City last for the 2014 New York Philharmonic spring gala featuring Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. I love saying that entire title.
Even though they’d just arrived in New York, celeb couple Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka were already on top of the red carpeting. And might I add that look incredibly handsome. Read More »
