Neil Patrick Harris on playing “a jackass” for tonight’s “Glee”
Hollywoodnews.com: You would think Neil Patrick Harris and “Glee” would be a marriage made in heaven. And perhaps it will. We’ll find out tonight when the singing, dancing, beloved “How I Met Your Mother” co-star guests on Fox’s popular prime time soap.
(Well, some of us will find out. The rest of us will be tuned to ABC’s “Lost” as we pray for answers before the final puzzle pieces snap into place.)
But Harris admits that he plays “a jackass” on tonight’s “Glee” episode, according to MTV News.
“I sing a bit,” NPH said. “I sing a few (songs), one of which is ‘Dream On’ by Aerosmith. And yeah, that’s me hitting the high note at the end, FYI.”
Joss Whedon of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” fame directs the ep, which focuses on a rivalry between Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) and his one-time, high school rival, Bryan Ryan (Harris).
And while he had the attention of Gleeks everywhere, Harris suggested some romantic chemistry between his character and Jane Lynch’s aggressive coach.
“I don’t know what scenes made it. I certainly had a love scene offscreen with Sue Sylvester, and that was exhausting,” Harris joked. “But we’ll see when we watch the show.”
