Ok, so How I Met Your Mother has only just started screening in the UK, and so it’s stars don’t have quite the profile that they do in the States. But looking at the stir the show has created across the pond, it is obvious that the cast have started to take their place among TV (and cinema’s) A list. Jason Segel is now a bonafide movie star, with Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and I Love You, Man both under his belt. For me, however, the biggest revelation is the rebirth of Doogie Howser’s Neil Patrick Harris as a comedic force to be reckoned with.

He has recently hosted the Tonys and the Emmys, and now there is rumour and speculation about him being given the biggest hosting job of the year – the Oscars. It could be debated whether NPH has the movie cred to take on such a job just yet, but watching his opening act at the Emmy’s this year (above), it is clear that he could pull it off. And since apparently Hugh Jackman has turned down the chance to take the role on again, who else could fill those singing and dancing shoes?

Maybe NPH and Jason Segel could do it together? Their rendition of The Confrontation from Les Mis is now pretty legen….dary. But again, even though Jase has made a few strides into the world of cinema, they are both still essentially TV stars. So who else could do it?

Paul Rudd would be pretty good. Alec Baldwin? Will Ferrell? Tina Fey?

Who do you think?

    Neil Patrick Harris is indeed a god. I still remember those pearls of wisdom written on his computer at the end of Doogie Howser.

    ARTICLE 7 of the Bro Code:
    You are allowed to enjoy exactly one chick TV show, and one chick flick. You may have no more. And if you like Grease, well, we’re already too late.
