Recently, rumors of Gwyneth Paltrow and Neil Patrick Harris possibly guest starring on American Horror Story: Freak Show surfaced. If it’s true, hopefully Harris doesn’t let this opportunity slip through his fingers.

When asked which role was the one that got away, the 41-year-old actor revealed it was for Murder House. In an interview with SiriusXM Entertainment, he explains the gay couple murdered in the house played by Zachary Quinto and Teddy Sears was originally offered to his husband David Burtka and himself.

In the end, it’s not like it hurt his career. NPH has done quite well for himself, winning a Tony recently and being named the host of the 2015 Academy Awards. Find out below why he turned it down even though his hubby wanted to do it.

Neil Patrick Harris Hosting 87th Academy Awards

In: Donovan, Movies, TV Shows

Someone has graduated to the big leagues. After hosting the Tony Awards and Emmy Awards previously, the 41-year-old actor has been tapped to host the 87th annual Academy Awards. The perfect man for the job if you ask me.

If sometime in the future, Neil Patrick Harris is asked to host the Grammys, he could be the first person to have a hosting EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscars and Tony) to his credit. It’s rare for a performer to win each of those statues, but hosting all events has never been done. If anyone can do it, it’s Harris.

The How I Met Your Mother actor takes over Ellen DeGeneres who hosted last year’s event which was seen by 43 million viewers. It saw ratings rise 6%, becoming the most-watched entertainment broadcast in 10 years. Can he topped those numbers? More importantly, can he outdo DeGeneres’ epic selfie pic?

Neil Meron and Craig Zadan have been recruited to produce the Oscars for the third year in a row. The annual extravaganza will take place Sunday, February 22, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Do you think NPH is a great choice to host the event? He has a very similar hosting style to Hugh Jackman. I fully expect an extremely gay-centric production. I.CANT.WAIT!!! Watch his video announcement below and weigh in afterward.

On October 16, Michael C. Hall steps into glittery high heels to play a transgendered East-German singer. The Dexter actor handles the torch from Girls Andrew Rannells who leaves the Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inhc after taking over Neil Patrick Harris. The latter won a Tony for his work.

Hall is no stranger to the Great White Way. He’s appeared in other Broadway productions including Chicago and Cabaret. Michael is expected to perform as Hedwig until January 4, 2015.

Now that the official promo poster of Hall as the titular character has been released, I’m curious to see which of the three actors our readers think is the most convincing Hedwig. Check out the other posters below and cast your vote.

Andrew Rannells is currently playing the titular transgender rocker in the Broadway revival. Production tapped the Book of Mormon star for a limited eight-week engagement after Neil Patrick Harris left after winning a Tony. Beginning October 16, Micheal C. Hall takes over until January 2015.

Production was reportedly to end after Harris’ engagement. It appears box office receipts are still doing well after his departure. The cache of winning all those Tonys is probably helping propel ticket sales.

In case you’re wondering if Hall has the chops for the role, he does. The former Dexter actor, in the past, has taken over roles in other Broadway productions including Chicago and Cabaret. For the latter, he sported some serious amounts of makeup. Check him out playing the Master of Ceremonies in Cabaret below, along with a vocal performance from the HBO series, Six Feet Under.

Neil Patrick Harris has proven himself a very capable awards show host. But can the former How I Met Your Mother actor pull off a nightly late night talk show? According to the 40-year-old that was almost a possibility.

Harris revealed to Howard Stern that CBS president Les Moonves approached him about taking over a late-night slot. Harris explains he rejected both offers because he didn’t want to get “bored.”

“I don’t have any interest in doing ‘monologue, commercial, sketch, guest, guest musical act, goodnight,’” he tells Stern, adding “It’s still nightly. You’re still coming up with the same content and now you’re just getting bitter that no one’s watching it.”

Stephen Colbert you’re welcome. The Comedy Central host took over David Letterman’s gig after Letterman announced his retirement. Neil Patrick did however pitch another idea to Moonves. Find out what it is below.
