In case you thought you knew everything there was to know about Broadway vet and Tony host extraordinaire, Neil Patrick Harris, you may want to continue reading.
The How I Met Your Mother star is surprising everyone with his wacky new mockumentary web series about his secret obsession with puppets. Dubbing his ailment “Neil’s Puppet Dreams”; – coincidentally also the name of the series – the actor is teaming up with Jim Henson’s brother Brian, to fight “puppet intolerance”; in a risqué way.
Also getting in on the wacky action is Neil’s real-life partner David Burtka, True Blood star Joe Manganiello clad in a pineapple tank top no less, Ru Paul’s Drag Race contestants Detox and Wilam and a barrage of Henson puppets. Drag performer Wilam says: “I say don’t work with children, animals, puppets drag queens or ‘tranimals’ which is a combination of all of them.”;
If this sneak peek is any indication, the “action”; we’re referring to includes puppet-on-human fantasies, Carmen Miranda-style fruit hats and a puppet warthog.
The series airs on November 27 on The Nerdist Channel on YouTube. Watch the preview below!
