FROM Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris Neil Patrick Harris has worn many hats in show business. He's a TV icon -- between Doogie Howser and his current CBS show, How I Met Your Mother -- he's lampooned his all-American image with a recurring part as himself (albeit a straight, coke-sniffing rake), and was the lead in Joss Whedon's webseries Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog . Plus, he's hosted the Emmys and the Tonys. But he's also President of the Academy for Magical Arts and is now directing a magic show, Nothing to Hide , at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles. He talks about his love of magic, reflects on why and how he didn't face the troubles so many child stars do, and answers he'd allow his two-year old twins to go into the business.
