Power List 2014: NEIL PATRICK HARRIS
By Out.com Editors
A perennial favorite of stage and small-screen audiences, Harris — a.k.a. Barney Stinson on CBS’s Emmy Award-winning sitcom How I Met Your Mother, which wrapped this year — has swapped his tailored suits for a blond wig and heels as he stars as the titular transgender punk rocker in the Broadway production of John Cameron Mitchell’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Although the popular awards host won’t be available for this year’s Tonys, he is featured in David Fincher’s adaptation of Gone Girl, further elevating his entertainment cred.
