I Interviewed Neil Patrick Harris

I visited the Queens set of NPH's new show Best Night Ever and sat down for a short interview. Here's the How I Met Your Mother part of the discussion. You can read the entire Q&A here. Hope you don't mind a few How I Met Your Mother questions. I notice the show repeats every now and then.

NPH: It’s on a fair amount, yeah. So when you’re flipping through the channels and pass it, do you ever stop and be like, “I gotta check this episode out?”

NPH: I don’t watch the whole episode but I’ll check out a singular scene. It’s less to watch the content and more to watch what was going on in our social world while filming. So you can remember a specific event per episode?

NPH: I have a great recall for that. Even old movies from when I was way younger. I can remember where we shot that scene, what it was like around the area. Is it annoying when people come up to you with a Barney Stinson quote?

NPH: No, not annoying at all. It’s very flattering. Barney was filled with catch phrases and imbibed good times. So, yeah, it’s usually at bars and and 'it’s the stuff of legend.' Does NPH play laser tag in real life?

NPH: I’ve only played a couple times. I always feel that I’m playing against peopleand this may just be paranoiabut I feel like I’m playing against people who have been playing twice daily in that course for a year or more and know every nook and cranny. That’s also why I’ve never played paint ball. I’m afraid of welts. Do you have a favorite How I Met Your Mother episode?

NPH: I loved the one where Barney proposed to Robin. I thought that was a great episode. I liked the musical version where we sang about suitsGirls vs. Suits it was called. I sang it out at the 20th Century Fox lot. We also did one that was all in rhyme with Lin-Manuel Miranda in that. I got to play five different characters around a table. That was a lot of fun to film.
