Neil Patrick Harris: From Doogie Howser To How I Met Your Mother
From the Broadway stage to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, this actor has been entertaining audiences since he was a young boy. Born on June 15th, 1973, he quickly proved to be a skilled drama student. After appearing in school plays, he made the transition to film in 1988. However, his status as a teenage heart-throb came the next year when he landed the iconic role of teen surgeon “Doogie Howser, M.D.” He later returned to film, and starred in the stage musical, “Rent.” However, it was his portrayal of himself as a drug-addicted hitchhiker in “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” that revitalized his career.
