The legendary Neil Patrick Harris, aka Barney Stinson, aka Doogie Houser, M.D., but better known in genre circles as Dr. Horrible, became more akin to the Human Torch last night, after being lit on fire during the TV Land Awards.
What? But NPH would never do that!, you might say. Well, according to Perez Hilton, this impromptu Richard Pryor impersonation took place after some smoke packs that were on NPH’s back suddenly went aflame. Thankfully, Harris — who I watch on a weekly basis on How I Met Your Mother — is okay, with “just some welts on his back” that did not require hospitalization.
Yeah, I think this calls for some Dr. Horrible comforting. Perhaps this experience will inspire NPH to make more of these? And if you don’t dig the song about his Freeze Ray, you have no heart.
