Neil Patrick Harris 'Inch'-es onto B'way

Perhaps next time, Neil Patrick Harris will be accepting a Tony Award instead of hosting the ceremony.

The multitalented actor, who once again won raves for his handling of Broadway's biggest celebration, is scheduled to take a turn on the Great White Way himself in a revival of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." Harris, 40, will star in the musical about an East German transgender singer and her rock band.

Seven things you should know about 'Dr. Horrible'

Let's travel back to the year 2008, when the idea of watching TV on the Internet was still a relatively new concept and online "Webisodes" were in their infancy. (And when "Iron Man" was in one of the biggest movies of the year - by himself.)

That was the year "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Firefly" creator Joss Whedon unleashed on the public a free three-part mini-series called "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog." The fact that it starred Neil Patrick Harris was an added bonus.

Neil Patrick Harris returns as Tony Awards host

His third time as Tonys host is sure to be charming, because let's be honest - is there ever a time when Neil Patrick Harris isn't?

The "How I Met Your Mother" actor has signed on to host the Tony Awards once again, and will lead fans through the 66th ceremony on Sunday, June 10.

Harris previously served as host for the 2009 and 2011 Tonys, and, as he did last year, he'll also produce the 2012 awards show.

Did 'The Smurfs' miss the mark?

There are rumors that the film version of beloved '80s cartoon "Smurfs" is a dud, but it may be worse than anyone could have imagined.

“The Smurfs” managed to maintain a shocking 0 percent rating on film review site Rotten Tomatoes for the past week, just recently bumping up to a mere 20 percent.

Despite the talents of Hank Azaria, Neil Patrick Harris, George Lopez and Katy Perry, the negative reviews are rolling in. Critics are calling the live-action/animated flick a wreck.

It's down to the phenoms on 'SYTYCD'

It's down to the phenoms on 'SYTYCD'

Well, we all knew it had to happen.

There aren't any less-than-stellar dancers left on "So You Think You Can Dance," so no matter who went home last night, it would have been unfortunate. But short of judge and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe saying "Hey! You're all so good we just can't choose! You all win! Woohoo!" – which he practically did do – the result was the best we could have hoped for.

As the judges deliberated, a guest performance by American Ballet Theatre's Daniil Simkin wowed the audience. Simkin is everything you'd want from an ABT soloist: smoothness of movement, clarity in the character, and, of course, gravity-defying jumps. And after another guest performance from musical girl group Blush, it was time for the bad news.
