Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris 2008.jpg

Neil Patrick Harris (born June 15, 1973) is an American Golden Globe- and Emmy-nominated actor and magician. Prominent roles in his career include the title character of Doogie Howser, M.D., the womanizing Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother, Col. Carl Jenkins in Starship Troopers, Dr. Horrible of the original web series Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, and as a fictionalized version of himself in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle and its sequel Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay.

Harris was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S., and grew up in Ruidoso, New Mexico. His parents, Sheila H. and Ron Harris, were lawyers. He has an older brother, and it was by following his brother to an audition in fourth grade that he first began acting—as Toto in a school production of The Wizard of Oz. He attended La Cueva High School in Albuquerque and was active in school plays and musicals there. Harris was an honors student and graduated with honors in 1991. He was three years ahead of fellow La Cueva student Freddie Prinze, Jr.

Harris began his career as a child actor, and was discovered by playwright Mark Medoff at a Drama Camp in Las Cruces, NM. Medoff cast him in his 1988 film Clara's Heart, a drama with Whoopi Goldberg that won him a Golden Globe nomination. In 1988, he also starred in Purple People Eater, a children's fantasy. The following year, he won the lead in Doogie Howser, M.D., for which he was again nominated for a Golden Globe. After Doogie Howser's four-season run ended in 1993, Harris played a number of guest roles on television series, before taking his first film role as an adult in 1995 in the little-seen shocker Animal Room. Since then, his film work has included supporting roles in The Next Best Thing, Undercover Brother, Starship Troopers, as well as Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle and Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, in both of which he played a drug-crazed, lecherous parody of himself.

From 1999 to 2000, Harris starred with Tony Shalhoub in the sitcom Stark Raving Mad, which lasted twenty-two episodes. He has taken lead roles in a number of made-for-television features, including Snowbound: The Jim and Jennifer Stolpa Story in 1994, My Ántonia in 1995, A Christmas Wish in 1998, Joan of Arc in 1999, The Wedding Dress in 2001, and The Christmas Blessing in 2005, as well as series guest roles.

Harris has worked on Broadway in both musical and dramatic roles. He played Tobias Ragg in 2001 concert performances of Sweeney Todd. In 2002, he performed on Broadway beside Anne Heche in Proof. In 2003, he took the role of the Emcee in Cabaret, alongside Deborah Gibson and Tom Bosley. As a result of his critically acclaimed performance in Cabaret, Harris was named the top-drawing headliner in the role of the Emcee by GuestStarCasting.com, topping fellow celeb stars John Stamos and Alan Cumming.

In 2004, he performed a dual role of the Balladeer and Lee Harvey Oswald on Broadway in the controversial musical revival of Stephen Sondheim's Assassins. He also sang the role of Charles (first played by Anthony Perkins) on the Nonesuch recording of Sondheim's Evening Primrose. He has also portrayed Mark Cohen in the musical RENT, a character who he mockingly reprised on the January 10, 2009, episode of Saturday Night Live, which he hosted. Harris's current role is in the CBS ensemble sitcom How I Met Your Mother, playing a serial womanizer in a performance that earned him a 2007 and a 2008 Emmy nomination. The show debuted in the fall of 2005 and is currently airing its fourth season.

In 2007, Harris worked with Mike Nelson on an audio commentary for RiffTrax. The two riffed on the film, Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory. Harris is a big fan of the cult TV series Nelson worked on, Mystery Science Theater 3000, and was interviewed for a 1992 Comedy Central special hosted by Penn Jillette, who did voiceovers for Comedy Central's programming at that time, about the series and its fans, This Is MST3K. In 2008, Harris starred alongside Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day in Joss Whedon's musical web series, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. The first episode of the series debuted July 15, 2008. Harris has also appeared on Sesame Street as the Sesame Street Shoe Fairy.

In November 2006, after a report about Harris's romantic relationship with actor David Burtka surfaced online, Harris came out publicly in People. He had been openly gay in his personal life and in the theater community, but stated, "The public eye has always been kind to me, and until recently I have been able to live a pretty normal life. Now it seems there is speculation and interest in my private life and relationships. So, rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love." Harris and Burtka attended the Emmy awards in September 2007 as an openly acknowledged gay couple for the first time, an appearance which Harris discussed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and which was reported in various media outlets. Neil and David have been together since April 2004. Harris has referred to Burtka as "My better half," and an "amazing chef".

Harris is a fan of magic, and is a magician himself like his character on How I Met Your Mother. He serves on the Board of Directors of Hollywood's Magic Castle. Harris won the Tannen's Magic Louis Award in 2006 and hosted the 2008 World Magic Awards on October 11, 2008.

Nathan Fillion

Nathan Fillion2.jpg

Nathan Fillion (born March 27, 1971) is a Canadian actor known for his lead role as Captain Malcolm Reynolds in the television series Firefly and his role as Joey Buchanan in One Life to Live.

Fillion was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, the son of Cookie and Bob Fillion, both of whom are retired English teachers. He has an older brother, Jeff, and attended Holy Trinity Catholic High School, Concordia University College of Alberta and the University of Alberta. According to Fillion, he is descended from Confederate Lieutenant General Jubal A. Early.

After working in several theatres, television and film productions, including Theatresports with Rapid Fire Theatre and the improvised soap opera Die-Nasty, Fillion moved to New York City in 1994 where he acted in the soap opera One Life to Live as Joey Buchanan, for which he was nominated in 1996 for a Daytime Emmy Award in the "Outstanding Younger Actor" category. In 1997, he left the series to pursue other projects (but would return for a brief guest appearance in 2007). After moving to Los Angeles, he played a supporting role in the sitcom Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place and was cast as "James Fredrick Ryan" or "The Minnesota Ryan" in Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan.

In 2002, Fillion starred as Captain Malcolm Reynolds in the Joss Whedon science fiction television series Firefly, for which he won the "Cinescape Genre Face of the Future - Male" award by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, USA. Fillion also won the Syfylus Genre Awards in 2006 for Best Actor/Television and was runner-up for Best Actor/Movie. Although the show was cancelled, it was adapted to the big screen; Fillion reprised his role as Mal in Whedon's movie Serenity (2005). He also had a recurring role as Caleb in the final season of Whedon's series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Fillion considered his time on Firefly to be the most fun he had on a television series.

Fillion has lent his voice to the animated series King of the Hill in 2001, the video game Jade Empire (as the voice of Gao the Lesser), and the animated series Justice League Unlimited (as Vigilante in the episodes "Hunter's Moon" and "Patriot Act") in 2005 and 2006. Fillion starred in James Gunn's 2006 horror film Slither. For his starring role as Bill Pardy, he garnered a 2006 Fangoria Chainsaw Awards nomination in the category of Dude You Don't Wanna Mess With. Fillion starred in the romantic comedy film Waitress, written and directed by the late Adrienne Shelly, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival January 21, 2007 and opened in theaters on May 2, 2007. According to Box Office Mojo, Waitress grossed $22,125,001 in worldwide sales as of May 13, 2008, and $29.22 million in rentals as of January 28, 2008. Fillion also starred in White Noise 2: The Light. He has made one appearance in the 2006-2007 season of the television show Lost, as Kevin, Kate's ex-husband.

In October 2006, Fillion signed a talent holding contract with the Fox Broadcasting Company, and in December 2006, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Fillion was cast in the lead role of Alex Tully in the series Drive, which debuted on Fox in the spring of 2007. Drive was created by Fillion's longtime friend and former Angel and Firefly writer Tim Minear. Ivan Sergei played Alex Tully in the original pilot episode of Drive. The first two Drive episodes premiered on April 13, 2007 in Canada (April 15, 2007 in the United States). However, the show did not deliver the ratings Fox desired, and on April 25, 2007, the network announced that the series was cancelled. The final two produced episodes were supposed to air back-to-back on Fox in July 2007, but did not actually become available until July 15 when they were posted on Drive's MySpace page. Fox has since removed Drive episodes from that Myspace. All six episodes are now available for download from Amazon.com and iTunes.

Fillion reprised his 1990s role as One Life to Live's Joey for the series' 9,999th and 10,000th episodes, aired August 16, 2007 and August 17, 2007.

Fillion joined the cast of ABC's Desperate Housewives at the beginning of the Fall 2007 season as Dr. Adam Mayfair, a gynecologist. His first appearance was in the episode "Now You Know", which aired on September 30, 2007.

Fillion plays the voice of a Marine Sergeant in the Xbox 360 game Halo 3. He is joined by his Firefly co-stars Adam Baldwin and Alan Tudyk who both voice marines. At one point early in the first mission, he identifies himself as " Reynolds" over the radio, referring to his character's name from the TV series Firefly. All three actors are given personalities in the game that match those of their characters from Firefly. He will reprise his role of Sergeant Reynolds in the Halo 3 expansion, Halo 3: ODST.

The independent feature film Trucker in which Fillion plays the character Runner was premiered at the New York 2008 Tribeca Film Festival.

On March 21, 2008 Fillion finished filming Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog which stars Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer, Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible and Felicia Day as Penny.

Fillion announced in 2008 that he had written a pilot and couple of episodes for a comedy with the working title Repo Brothers which has been picked up by ABC. Also in 2008, Fillion started working on a TV series for ABC called Castle, in which he plays Rick Castle, a mystery novelist who helps the NYPD solve crimes.

Fillion believes strongly in the importance of reading and believes every child deserves the chance to read good books.

Doogie Howser, M.D.

Doogie Howser Cast Photo.gif

Doogie Howser, M.D. is a television comedy-drama starring Neil Patrick Harris as a brilliant doctor who also faces the problems of being a normal teenager. ABC aired the show from September 1989 to March 1993 for four seasons totaling 97 episodes.

Created by Steven Bochco and David E. Kelley, the weekly, half-hour "dramedy" starred Harris as Douglas "Doogie" Howser, a Los Angeles child prodigy who became the youngest physician in the country. The soundtrack of the series is by Mike Post and uses Post's trademark mid to late 1980s Yamaha DX-7 synthesizer.

The first two seasons were successful and were in the top 30.

Dr. Douglas "Doogie" Howser (Harris) is the son of David (Sikking) and Katherine Howser (Montgomery). As a child, he twice survived early-stage pediatric leukemia, "first when I was four and then...again when I was six", after his father—a family physician—discovered suspicious bruising. The experience fueled Howser's desire to also enter medicine.

Possessing a genius intellect and an eidetic memory, Howser got a perfect score on the SAT at the age of six. He completed high school in nine weeks, graduated from Princeton University at age 10, and finished medical school four years later. At age 14, Howser was the youngest licensed doctor in the country.

The series begins on Howser's 16th birthday; the cold open of the pilot episode shows him stopping his field test for his driver's license to help an injured person at the scene of a traffic accident. Howser is a resident surgeon at Eastman Medical Center in Los Angeles, and still lives at home with his parents. His best friend and neighbor, Vinnie Delpino (Casella), is a more typical teenager—climbing through Howser's bedroom window to visit—and keeps him grounded in life outside his profession. Howser keeps a diary on his computer; episodes typically end with him making an entry in it.

The teen doctor seeks acceptance by both others his age and his professional colleagues. Many episodes also deal with wider social problems; AIDS awareness, racism, sexism, homophobia, gang violence, access to quality medical care, and losing one's virginity are topics, along with aging, body issues, and friendship.

Howser initially has a girlfriend, Wanda Plenn (Ryan), but they break up in the course of the series; he also begins a trauma surgery fellowship and moves into his own apartment. Bochco intended to end the show with a "season-long story arc for Doogie where he becomes disaffected with the practice of medicine and . . . quits medicine to become a writer." ABC abruptly canceled the show due to low ratings, preventing Bochco and the show's writers from implementing the storyline.

Anchor Bay Entertainment has released all 4 seasons of the TV series on DVD in Region 1.

Proof (play)

Proof, A Play.jpg

Proof is a play by David Auburn originally produced by the Manhattan Theatre Club on 23 May 2000. It then went to Broadway on 24 October 2000 at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Directed by Daniel J. Sullivan, with Mary-Louise Parker as Catherine, Larry Bryggman as Robert, Ben Shenkman as Hal, and Johanna Day as Claire. Mary-Louise Parker won the Tony Award for her performance. Later during the Broadway run, Jennifer Jason Leigh (September 13, 2001 to June 30, 2002) and Anne Heche took over the lead role. Josh Hamilton and Neil Patrick Harris subsequently played the role of Hal.

The play concerns Catherine, the daughter of Robert, a recently deceased mathematical genius and professor at the University of Chicago, and her struggle with mathematical genius and mental illness. Catherine had cared for her father through a lengthy mental illness. Upon Robert's death, his ex-graduate student Hal discovers a paradigm-shifting proof about prime numbers in Robert's office. The title refers both to that proof and to the play's central question: Can Catherine prove the proof's authorship? Along with demonstrating the proof's authenticity, the daughter also finds herself in a relationship with 28-year-old Hal. Throughout, the play explores Catherine's fear of following in her father's footsteps, both mathematically and mentally.

Gwyneth Paltrow played Catherine in the 2005 film Proof, which was directed by John Madden again. Along with Paltrow, it starred Anthony Hopkins, Hope Davis, and Jake Gyllenhaal. The film version added more characters (in minor supporting roles), whereas the play has only four.

Harold & Kumar

Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle.JPG

Harold & Kumar is a stoner comedy film series starring John Cho and Kal Penn. The first film Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle was released in 2004. A sequel Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay followed in 2008. A third film in the series has been announced.

Harold Lee and Kumar Patel are two stoners who get the munchies and embark on a quest for White Castle burgers after seeing a TV commercial for the same. On their way they encounter many obstacles, including a gang of skate punks, a raccoon with attitude, a group of Asian nerds, an unlikely married couple who are Jesus freaks and sex seekers, a racist police officer, a cheetah on the lam from a zoo, and an out-of-control Neil Patrick Harris .

Immediately following the events of Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, Harold Lee and Kumar Patel fly to Amsterdam so Harold can pursue a budding romance with his neighbor. Upon arrival at the airport, Kumar creates trouble while going through security in order to get weed on the plane. The pair run into Vanessa, Kumar's ex-girlfriend, and her fiancée Colton, another old college buddy who helped Harold get his job at Brewster-Keagan, at the airport. Harold and Kumar board the plane, and mid-flight, an old woman sees Kumar lighting his new invention, a smokeless bong. She mistakes it for a bomb, and screams "Terrorist!", causing Kumar to drop the bong on the floor, which breaks and emits a pleasant-smelling, though visible, gas, prompting another passenger to scream "Poison Gas!" Air marshals immediately detain both, and the plane returns to Washington D.C., where Ron Fox, the neurotic Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security, sends them to the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. Just before they are forced to eat a so called "cockmeat sandwich" or perform Fellatio they escape and sneak into Florida with the help of some Cuban refugees. They go to see a friend of theirs, Raza, who is hosting a party and he encourages them to travel to Texas in search of Colton, with hopes that he will be able to help them through his father, who is connected with several high political officials.

Harold Lee is a Korean American Investment Banker residing in New Jersey, US. The character was created by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, and is portrayed by John Cho in both films.

In Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, Harold Lee is a hard working stoner from the northern part of New Jersey. Harold's best friend & roommate, free spirit Kumar, is not afraid to let go of his inhibitions, making Harold the symbolic personification of the suppressed Asian-American employee and student in the United States. Harold, at times, lets go of his inhibitions, but only during moments of extreme duress, to the point where he amazes even the free-spirited Kumar. Harold is the yin to Kumar's yang, with the both of them being united through their enjoyment of cannabis smoking after a long day's work and or leisurely fun (such as aboard an airplane in the sequel, and an after work "Friday night special" in the first film).

Harold's romantic life centers around John Hughes like fancies (as is evidenced by his infatuation with film classics such as Sixteen Candles). Harold thinks that he'll wind up with a similarly repressed Korean-American young woman--Cindy Kim--who isn't as repressed as he thinks, ironically enough. The true object of Harold's desire, however, is his Maria Quesadilla (played by Paula Garces) , who lives across the hall from him in his building.

Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay begins with Harold in the shower cleaning up before their trip to Amsterdam, dreaming about Maria, then being interrupted by Kumar taking a dump. On the plane, they are arrested because of Kumar testing out his "smokeless bong" on the airplane, and sent to Guntanamo Bay. After escaping the two attempt to go to Texas in attempt to clear their name. In one of the flashbacks Kumar has, it is revealed that Harold used to be an emo back in college. The end of the movie, after being cleared, Harold and Kumar arrive in Amsterdam and find Maria. The film ends with them, Kumar and his newly reacquired ex-girlfriend enjoying the city.

Kumar Patel is an Indian student residing in New Jersey, US. His family includes his father and brother, Saikat Patel. The character was created by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, and is portrayed by Kal Penn in both films.

In Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, Kumar Patel is a 22 year old Indian-American post-college student. He shares an apartment with fellow roommate and best friend, Harold Lee. Unlike Harold, Kumar is free spirited and outgoing, not afraid to do what he wants. Kumar is the yang to Harold's yin, with the both of them being united through their enjoyment of cannabis smoking after a long day's work and or leisurely fun (such as aboard an airplane in the sequel, and an after work "Friday night special" in the first film). Both his father and brother are successful doctors, and expect him to follow in their footsteps. Though not interested in school, Kumar is remarkably intelligent and knows how to perform complex surgical procedure, as shown in the film while looking for medicinal marijuana at the hospital.

One day, the two are stoned and see a commercial for White Castle and decide to go there and get some food. On the way, they encounter a bunch of thugs who tell Harold to learn how to drive. They also run into the aptly named Freakshow, who offers to fix their car when it breaks down. He tells them they can go inside and have fun with his wife. To their surprise, his wife is attractive. Freakshow comes into the house to find Harold and Kumar about to touch his wife's breasts. At first he freaks out but then he offers them a foursome and they run away. They then run into a hitchhiker who turns out to be Neil Patrick Harris. He wants to go to a stripclub to get laid. As they go to a gas station for directions, Neil takes off with the car. Harold then gets arrested by a racist cop for jaywalking at 2:30 AM, but is eventually saved by Kumar.

After escaping from the prison and being on the run from the cops, they end up in the woods where they see a cheetah. Not wanting to be killed, they get high with the cheetah and start riding it. Harold gets knocked off, and they find out they've gone the wrong way. They are now back at the gas station, where they run into the thugs. There is a small confrontation and then Harold manages to steal their Orange Ford Bronco and ride it away into the woods. As they stop, they see White Castle. They then realize that on top of the Bronco is a hang glider. They set it up and jump off the mountain and land right in front of their destination.

They go in and each order 30 hamburgers, 5 orders of fries and 4 sodas, only to find out that they don't have any money. Neil Patrick sees them and gives Harold back his car key and says that he'll pay for their meals. He also gives Harold $200 for the "love stains" he made in the back of his car.

Both films feature Neil Patrick Harris playing a fictionalized version of himself. In the films, Harris is portrayed as a heavy drug user and womanizer, despite being openly gay in real life. In an interview with Ain't It Cool News, Neil Patrick Harris revealed that the series' writers were discussing the possibility of a spin-off movie based on his fictional person.

Two Orthodox Jewish friends of Harold and Kumar. There has been discussion of them getting their own spin-off movie. The duo is based on the characters Rosencrantz and Guildenstern from the Shakespeare play Hamlet.

Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg have announced plans to write and direct a third Harold & Kumar film, Greg Shapiro will return as producer with Kal Penn and John Cho expected to return in their title roles. In April 2009, Kal Penn was offered a job at the White House; when asked if his new job would mean no more Harold and Kumar films, he said "it's probably true".
