Neil Patrick Harris
'How I Met Your Mother' season 9 got back some much-needed good will with this past week's flashback-centric "Platonish," but will next Monday's "Mom and Dad" keep the streak alive? 'Dexter' vet John Lithgow returns as Barney's biological father Jerry, while the first clip from the all-new episode breaks out into song! Plus, will a series-long mystery finally be answered?
It's been no secret that 'How I Met Your Mother''s final season has dragged a bit in the early episodes by spending so much time with the wedding weekend in Farhampton, but could Monday's "No Questions Asked" right the course? We last left Marshall in something of a pickle, so what happens when Barney comes to the rescue in the latest clips and photos?
Neil Patrick Harris just couldn't help himself, could he? After telling the audience at the 2013 Emmy Awards that there's more to him than singing and dancing, he bursts out into song and dance!
'Smurfs 2' is pretty much unbearable, but then again I am a guy with no children whose favorite 2013 so far is a toss-up between 'Stoker' and 'Only God Forgives.' To paraphrase Roger Ebert, I’m as sure of the fact that there is an audience for this sequel as I am that I’m not a member of it, but does that excuse how overmodulated and mind-obliteratingly stupid Raja Gosnell’s sequel is? It seems like it can’t. And yet, there’s a massive difference between abominable entertainment made for “everybody” and abominable entertainment made mostly for kids. All of which is why 'Smurfs 2' is the kind of terrible that almost deserves to be excused, because it’s designed to make children laugh at stupid hijinks with bright colors and broad gags rather than tell a story that anyone over the age of five hasn’t seen 5,000 times before, much less care about.
More and more each year, the hardcore San Diego Comic-Con loyalists bemoan the presence of TV and movies that have little to do with comics or comic culture at large, but in this case, we don't mind one bit. 'How I Met Your Mother' will make its first (and only) appearance as a panel at Comic-Con 2013, but which stars will be in attendance, and what can we see from the final season?
For as much as we loved late-night host and Hollywood personality Jimmy Kimmel's turn hosting the 2012 Emmy Awards, the newest host for 2013's award ceremony is hardly a step down. 'How I Met Your Mother' star Neil Patrick Harris will host the CBS award ceremony for a second year, months after his turn hosting the 2013 Tony Awards, but can NPH dazzle us a second time?
It was revealed today that Universal has agreed to co-finance Seth MacFarlane's upcoming Western comedy, 'A Million Ways to Die in the West,' finally putting the film on the fast track to production. After all, MacFarlane's 'Ted' shattered all expectations at the box office last year, so they'd be foolish not to. Also hidden away in the announcement: Neil Patrick Harris has joined the cast, adding another great name to a shockingly solid ensemble.
