View: 4724Former teen idol Neil Patrick Harris can be described as something of a Renaissance man, someone who is intelligent and accomplished in a variety of areas, and who can act, sing, dance, play music, and perform live. Harris's career has spanned more than twenty years. During that time, he has gone from playing the baby-faced do-gooder Doogie Howser in the late 1980s and early 1990s to playing the phenomenal cad Barney Stinson in the hit show How I Met Your Mother. Neil Patrick Harris is widely admired not just for his many talents, but also for his openness and honesty about his own life and his willingness to be frank about his homosexuality. This has made him a role model to others who have struggled with their own sexual identity. Above all, Harris's ability to integrate his identity and skills into his many projects has made him one of Hollywood's most versatile stars. Supporting social studies and biography assignments, this informative edition presents readers with an overview of Neil Patrick Harris's career and personal life.
