As the very awesome Neil Patrick Harris turns 39, we check out some of his legendary lines from the hit sitcom
Neil Patrick Harris turns 39 this Friday (June 15th), so what better way to celebrate this legendary actor than with some of his best Barney Stinson lines from 'How I Met Your Mother'.
The actor, singer, director and occasional magician (yes, really) has made a name for himself since he first debuted as a child star. Neil even has a 1989 Golden Globe nomination for his starring role as 'Doogie Howser M.D.'; the dude has been around for much longer than you think.
Neil kept himself busy before taking on the role of Barney Stinson in 'How I Met Your Mother'; Broadway, voiceovers and his memorable parts in 'Harold & Kumar go to White Castle' and 'Escape from Guatanamo Bay' as a coked up version of himself made sure he never faded into oblivion after playing the kid doctor.
He has also done voice over for the likes of "Justice League: The New Frontier", "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore".
In 2005, Neil landed a role as the suit wearing womaniser, Barney Stinson, in "How I Met Your Mother". Neil's character has been received really well by critics and has been credited for the show's success, turning Neil Patrick Harris into the icon he is today.
To celebrate Neil's birthday, we've collected some of the best Barney Stinson lines; see if you recognise any of 'em.
