Neil Patrick Harris turns 41 on Sunday (June 15), which this year happens to fall on Father’s Day. No doubt he and fiance David Burtka will be celebrating with their twins, Gideon and Harper.
Harris’ joy in being a dad is celebrated in his frequently adorable Instagram photos, putting to rest any idea that his real life is anything like that of the often caddish characters he plays.
But he plays those roles so well: See his fake self in the “Harold and Kumar” movies and especially Barney Stinson on “How I Met Your Mother.” His Tony-winning role as the title character in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is also miles away from his off-stage personality.
In honor of both the day and Harris’ roles, here’s an on-theme but not entirely appropriate Barney compilation from “How I Met Your Mother.” [Wink]
