Seth MacFarlane says he'll never host the Oscars again -- so who should step up next year? POLL

Looking for another bad-on-purpose-but-even-so-we’re-going-to-sing-it-for-three-minutes song about boobs at next year’s Academy Awards? Sorry, Charlie — Seth MacFarlane isn’t interested in a repeat hosting performance:

MacFarlane’s decision to follow Ricky Gervais’s awards show lead must be disappointing for the 46 percent of EW readers who think the Family Guy creator did a great job on Sunday — not to mention ABC, which must be pleased with the show’s high ratings (40.3 million viewers, up 3 percent from last year, with an 11 percent increase in adults 18-49). It also means that next year’s hosting field is wide open — though that said, there are a few frontrunners for the gig.

Neil Patrick Harris on getting probed by alien puppets...for his webseries: 'You don't know what you're missing'

If you’ve been watching Neil Patrick Harris’ YouTube series Neil’s Puppet Dreams — made in partnership with Nerdist and Henson Alternative — it’s already abundantly clear that this is not exactly a show for kids. Harris has already had his (puppet) trouser weasel examined, been interrogated for being a (puppet) predator, and fended off a (puppet) beaver hungry to eat his (non-puppet) wood.

And then there’s this week’s episode (embedded below), in which NPH finds himself abducted by (puppet) aliens and begs them to give him a good probing. He-yo!

As Harris makes clear in our Q&A with him below, it’s all in the spirit of good, kinda dirty fun.  READ FULL STORY

Following in the footsteps of South Park, 30 Rock, and numerous others, Neil Patrick Harris has taken a stab at To Catch a Predator.

In the new YouTube video, “To Catch a Puppeteer,” the How I Met Your Mother star attempts to satisfy his puppet fetish, only to be accosted by a fuzzy Chris Hansen.

Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe bring 'Les Mis' 'Confrontation' to New York club

Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe — a.k.a. the stars of Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables, a.k.a. the most important movie of 2012 or ever — sure know how to make a musical-theater geek swoon. The pair recently reunited in New York City to perform one of Les Mis‘s best-loved songs: “The Confrontation,” in which tireless Inspector Javert (Crowe) accosts the noble Jean Valjean (Jackman), who has been living under an assumed name. The duet was half serious, half silly, and all awesome, as you can see from the following video:

Neil Patrick Harris returns to 'Assassins,' eyes return to Broadway

Neil Patrick Harris returns to the Broadway stage Monday night for a concert performance of Assassins, the Stephen Sondheim musical that won the 2004 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival. The benefit reunites the 2004 cast (the show first debuted on Broadway in 1990), including Harris, Tony-winner Michael Cerveris, and True Blood’s Denis O’Hare. But while this show is only for one night, Harris tells EW that he hopes the show is just the start of more theater work for him in the near future.

“My worry is I’m going to do this one night and then be dying to get back on stage and do a full production,” Harris says. He hopes the future might hold even edgier stage work. “I’d love to do something very against type. I’d love to revive something dirty and raw … to do something radical like Hedwig, something that would really be outside the box.”

Harris’s hit show, How I Met Your Mother, is well into its eighth season, and CBS execs haven’t yet decided if it will see a ninth. Either way, Harris is already starting to think about what he’ll do next.

Neil Patrick Harris-directed 'Nothing to Hide' takes fresh look at magic

Derek DelGaudio and Helder Guimarães may look unsuspecting: two good-looking young guys, hanging out in Los Angeles; Guimarães sporting hipster glasses and DelGaudio spikey dark hair. But don’t be fooled by their nonchalant appearance – these two have more than a few tricks up their sleeves, literally.

Pardon the pun, but DelGaudio and Guimarães are two of the foremost up-and-coming magicians out there. DelGaudio has been practicing his craft around L.A. for years. Portugal native Guimarães was crowned the youngest-ever World Champion of Card Magic in 2006. Inspired by Penn and Teller, but quick to distinguish themselves from anyone who’s come before them, the duo work together equally on stage to create a magic show that focuses on artistry, illusion, and of course — cards.

“We’re magicians with two different focuses,” DelGaudio told EW. “Helder always focuses on the most perfect miracle and I always focus on the most meaningful one.“

In their first ever theater-length show, DelGaudio and Guimarães expanded a 30-minute production they first collaborated on at L.A.’s historic Magic Castle into a 70-minute show — with the help of celebrity director and magic enthusiast Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother). Nothing to Hide opened Tuesday at the Geffen Playhouse, a theater that the magicians noted during the show held about double the biggest audience they’d ever played for. READ FULL STORY

Neil Patrick Harris on his YouTube show 'Neil's Puppet Dreams': 'I have a puppet workshop in my garage' -- VIDEO

The idea of a web series featuring Neil Patrick Harris and puppets seems like such an obvious thing the world needs, it’s a little shocking no one’s come up with it until now. Produced with the Jim Henson Company’s “Henson Alternative” division, Neil’s Puppet Dreams premieres today on the Nerdist’s YouTube channel. While upcoming episodes promise drag queens, puppet sex, and a surprising amount of nudity — this ain’t a family webseries — the first episode features a simple fear of falling and a vividly illustrative song penned by co-creator and producer Janet Varney. You can watch the first episode below, and then check out my interview with Harris about how this all came about, the powerful pull puppets have on his life, and, yes, whether How I Met Your Mother is returning for a ninth season.  READ FULL STORY
