Neil Patrick Harris, the hilarious Barney Stinson from “How I Met Your Mother,” is guest-starring on “Glee” later this year as Brian Ryan, “a villainous guy … who went to high school with Will Schuester,” NPH tells the Hollywood Reporter.
“Two years older and got all the good parts. Then went on cruise ships and did theme park work. Then got a crack addiction and nine years later realized that the arts and the glee club was good for nothing,” NPH reveals. “So he is out to cut school funding and get rid of the glee club.”
“Glee’s” own Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) tells Zap2it, “I have a terrific scene with Neil. He
plays a great, kind of has-been arrogant kind of character who used to
be a glee clubber and now is all bitter about any musical dreams. And
he’s on the school board now and wants to cut the glee club and I’m of
course in favor of that.”
We can’t wait! NPH’s episode, titled “Dream On,” airs May 18 on FOX.
