"WanNa push them. I mean look I was a kid actor threw myself on a TV show. I was given a lot of responsibility at a really early age and I I loved it and it didn't sink me you know and and I think that kids deserve to be pushed and honored and treated with respect and I hope these books does my wife and I always say that books often don't give kids enough credit shore shore curiosity what they understand about the world but they want to learn about the world you definitely you definitely do here. you mentioned your Childhood in Mexico working in the bookstore when did the acting light turn on for you as a kid because it seems like it was pretty young that you had some sent two hundred to perform yeah. I was always I was. I was never shy about performing and I think that must have been the unique sort of thing. I think a a lot of kids boys especially don't WANNA sing before their voices changed because it sounds like they're singing soprano parts and I had no that didn't bother me at all so I sang with our fiscal church choir all adults and little knee singing the Halloween chorus. It didn't bother hit that no yeah I do. I can so I was always kind of a precocious ocean performer I suppose and I would love to go to six flags in Middle America and I'd go right to the shows and I watch those review shows and see the people missing in costume changes set would flip around. I thought that was so cool. I wanted to do a roller coaster. Yeah the song and dance yeah loved really turned gone by like the the eighties. Tribute shows hadn't even know the song they gossip. I'd love this. Maybe the stunt shows into sort of the physical performance right and so then I wound up through weird circumstance going to a summer drama camp for a week for one of the colleges in New Mexico go to Mexico State University and Mark Medoff playwright recently passed away had written movie called Clara's heart and they happen to be casting costing it had nothing to do with the camp it was completely separate and I was there and happened to be in his one of his classes and he thought just getting interesting new idea so I had me put on tape and I wound up getting a movie and everything Kinda go from acting camp to now. You'RE GONNA move with Whoopi Goldberg Yeah and nominated for a Golden Globe award yeah at howled thirteen fourteen years old something like you're young. So what did that mean to your life to now okay. those are professional job did a pretty good job now. What do I do from here. I live at home in New Mexico but I'm getting these calls. La How did you handle that it was. It's all like a bucket list. It was so fun it was hey you've got just audition to do to be in a TV movie with Lonnie Lonnie Anderson where you play her her handicapped son no Patrick Duffy's handicapped son and Lonnie Anderson rounds you in a lake. That's the pitch that's the pitch sure. That sounds like great fun. When did we start shooting so I go for for four weeks now. A super cool and I go back to school so it all just felt like this. We never uprooted ourselves and and wanted to make a career out of it. It just seems like this this random thing that I got to do sometimes and we never wanted to do a TV show because that was done just that it would have had the whole family my parents were attorneys and you can't really practice law and a different state and so we never really wanted to do TV by current said unless it was like a Stephen Bochco show 'cause they loved. La Law and Hill Hill Street Blues and then sure enough telephone rings this Stephen Bochco guys doing this show about that kid dr you'd be perfect cut to US moving to moving to Los Angeles doing just that those an automatic yes when he called no he didn't he offer me the Gig I went and met with him auditions and then. I don't think he thought I was the right guy for a long time because they kept auditioning all over all over America and then I wound up finally getting the job and when I went to set right before we started shooting. All the crew members were wearing shirts that they they had printed this at all. Play Doogie has been taken them that long to cast role so so I but I wound up getting on that Gig and that was I was four years and then it became very real right then you're then you're in the in the machine gene of television which you know is corporate and cool. There's a there's no way you could have imagined what that show is going to become but there's a story. That's told that you've when you've told before we're Stephen. I get sat with you and your family before the show even started. Some things are about to change in your life in ways. You probably can't comprehend yet. It was a very very wise man. Fantastic writer obviously changed the game of television intrinsically and I think he recognized that we were from small town New Mexico. I didn't have parents that were in the industry. It was all kind of a Lark and he sat us down at a restaurant on Pico Boulevard Arden said this is GonNa be a game changer. This will change your life not in a you've won the lottery. This'll change your life kit way way but this is gonNA alter your life and in here was my his lesson on Perspective and he used surfing metaphor because I think he lived in Brentwood which is near the water and he said imagine that you catch this wave and you're surfing and it's great and here's hoping the show becomes a success and that's what happens that wave will end crash. Now you may not crash in hurt yourself but you're gonNA finish the wave and you have have to figure out and decide if you're going to get back on the on the board and paddle back out and try again to catch another wave and in doing so you're going to get hit by a lot of waves coming on towards you and then you'll finally make it out there and you'll sit on the on the board and then you're GonNa have to wait for the next set of ways to come in and and that kind of perspective I've found very helpful because it's very true about this industry for as many for you know you can be on game of thrones and then you're on game of thrones right and then game of thrones ends and then you're auditioning right so not. It's not like your career is done on or your nobody anymore or that was all for nothing. It's just means you're sitting on a on a on a surfboard and you need to have the perspective to wait for another set of way so many people as you know don't even get back out from shore the one crash and they don't even get back out there. The stories stories are many of what's happening young stars in Hollywood. What was it about you or maybe your family or maybe that perspective. You got that allowed him to prevent that from happening thing to you because you were obviously thriving a well adjusted guy with a great family you didn't you didn't crash again really happen. I I I yeah I don't know I mean I wasn't drawn towards hardcore drug abuse. I wasn't abused as a kid. My parents were super for smart almost logical to a fault. Sometimes I think they took the entertainment industry in Hollywood in general is as a cautionary cautionary tale as opposed to this beautiful ether that they want to jump in and swim. They were kind of Let's calm it down. What's make sure so. They were a very grounding force and I really appreciate them for that but more so I don't know I've. I really enjoy the process. I'm not experiential learner. I can sit and read a book and learn about history of Italian town and I can memorize memorize it and look at the photos and I get it but when I go to an Italian town I'm wandering the streets and I'm learning about the history. I remember it you know because I'm there and I'm part part of it right and not that's what I instill in my kids and though I just hungry to do I wanna go see things I want to. I love that we're doing an interview in an an actual actual location where you can see things just makes it memorable for me and so when successes come and go you don't have control over likes it and who how performs the first week at the box office or or whether you get another season of the show but you can enjoy the process while it's happening opening and so. I've I've been interested in lots of different skill sets. I was on a TV show for a long time and got really good at being a twentieth century. Fox sound stage and knowing how to not go like this one and talking over my shoulder got good at sitting standing still but then I wanted wanted to theater so I could move my body and then that's a whole different vibe and Super Fun to have an audience there that you can sense what they're what whether they're bored or whether they're antsy. ANC or whether they're into it and how to maintain that and that's exciting but so different from going to a circus where you're in a giant tent you know when people blur performing wondrous things right in front of you and that's so different from going to the nomad hotel and seeing a magic show going up to to the second floor and following cards on the ground until you go into this place and you meet someone and he you know there's those experiences I love so I'm a big process person. The answer your question of of how her severe I just enjoy working much more than I enjoy and need the approval afterward. Did you run into post Doogie Howser as big. A success is that was casting. Directors and other people saying you were great on that show. I don't know how to fit you in because everybody sees you. Do you hauser yeah. Yeah I mean not me kind of way but back then that was eighty nine to ninety two so the Internet was not happening in the same way and when you were on television you weren't in movies. There was a pretty big divide because really the Internet allowed the Amazons and the net flicks is to start hiring movie people for short run television. Things on the Cross pollinating has happened to is such an extent now that if you're working on anything that's great but back then you were a TV actor so it was definitely there was definitely a grass is greener over there kind of thing when you see kids that you grew up with making movies and you kind of have this weird hilarious. Doogie howser name and you're going in to audition for a part in a movie. The movie casting directors weren't so anxious to cast television people just because there was a divide not because right on anything wrong right so oh for sure and that's when I switched over theater because weirdly being on television show is really great when you're in the theater right 'cause. They're just trying to get butts in seats. That's right so they can say from this show and then that's good so I got to do theatre where you don't get paid much money but your spirit gets filled assure you you overcome a lot of personal challenges. I had no idea until I was reading a few things about you because I saw Harold and Kumar go to white castle and you were funny the end version of yourself but I didn't realize that it was like for you anyway. In terms of film and TV was sort of a turning point for you because it's in a weird way. Give you an edge and rebranded you and maybe made how I met your mother possible that fair to say I would probably probably I think think because I was a child actor that everyone is worried that you're going to snap whereas you've had some terrible upbringing and so no one would ever joke around about it. I guess and so the fact that Harold and Kumar came along at a time when I was doing theater and then it sort of it was sort of reverential in away John Hayden who wrote that they were they liked they were big fan of Doogie howser and they liked me as an actor so they thought it would be fun to do a a twisted version of it so I was sort of taking the piss out of it. A little bit were they were with drug addled sort of super horny super sexed up version version of me who steals cars and didn't care about anything and I so I didn't know anything about the process of that. I just found out it was this movie and apparently I was in uh right so that was kind of great today's work and I think the fact that I was able to not be so precious about my self in a way.

They don't know their name trying to go through the rest of the cast in Lucia di Benicio Del Toro Laura dern Carrie Fisher a-list okay Geneva Jimmy Fallon is he he lists. I I would think is do we fallen has access to so many celebrities like Regis. What whatever what everybody know who Jimmy Fallon's if you went to a tiny little village in India and said Jimmy Fallon they know Jimmy Fallon? I don't think they want. Maybe I guess there's English talk. Show hosts that I've never heard of people other huge like Jim. Norton Norton did it but the thing is when Conan's been doing his travel.

Life advice from Neil Patrick Harris
"neil patrick harris" Discussed on Life is Short with Justin Long
"It's any could I could literally just walk around and sit on someone's lap and the audience and like grab their kids and then like go up and walk around and like sort of give guy a hand job while they suck on his neck while he's playing a saxophone and the non then push him away sound of music. Truly and I never in my life, a Ben in a role that would allow that sure be I never thought of myself as a person who would be allowed that, but with that comes sort of sexual swag or swagger that you have to own. Because if you sure act shocked at what you're doing doesn't that doesn't, isn't it? No real see through it. I mean, I, I would imagine. I would imagine an audience, especially like a Broadway, like post Alan come. They, they, they will know if you're not owning it. It's the best thing about doing theater that is that you can sort of fake it. But you're doing it in repetition enough times that you realize you do it. Yeah. So it's like Hedwig I did, which was in complete drag. I mean transgender drag and I had never ever even lock it heels before. So I had to then not only be confident as a woman, but, like a well past insecurities of it because she was old and had been doing that for years and years. So that was that was the trot. Acting. How did you do that? How did you literally just walk around you just got? I mean, did you befriended, Willam belli who was drag all rupaul drag race all star was on season, two got kicked off? He's still amazing and a friend and that was after when how much your mother was ending. And we just went in the rehearsal room and he brought some wigs and heels and taught me how to walk them tricky. Now, these are all supports that can transcend specific type of sexuality heterosexual homosexual was there, ever a concern that as there may have been after doogie howser. I'm going to be seen in this light. I'm now going to be seen in this light. I think I was more afraid of that when that was worth being afraid of which was, I think four or five years before. I mean okay free. Ellen coming out on TV this is now who you are. There was a big glass ceiling that no one had broken through. And so everyone, I think was concerned that it may affect future job opportunities and back, then it probably on the same being on. Tv meant that you didn't get to be in movies totally. So, I think I was kind of just guarded as a performer because I didn't want to commit too much and accidentally reveal too much. Yeah. So I had this sort of intrinsic internalized kind of homophobia about what it meant if your legs are crossed this way versus this way, how people would take it if you were sitting on your wrist was not perfectly spent a lot of time processing all of that. So getting to play something that was hyper, sexual great and Mike coming out happened during how I met your mother where you're playing this very. I mean he's, he's such a he's straight layer. Yeah. Yeah. Straight, but fun down with anything and made out with two year olds and dogs, very sexual behavior sexual is. And this is what this is how so much America's now absorbing you in this capacity seeing this character. And so I think that the bro totally your you still. I mean, I see you sometimes those Heine. Commercials are like your that's a bro. Econoline. Demographic, that is meant that, that's how he's very pleased that I was doing I was I was accepted by that demographic. Yeah. When all of the, the coming out happened. Well, I think it also did a lot for the community. I think it was a huge thing that, that happened to coincide that role the timing of your coming out because, you know, it's like it I think it'd probably dispelled a lot of myths about what gay performers are here, you are convincingly playing this kind of guy to a mass audience, and so, you know, it didn't really matter..

"Like you really have to think about it because cash neil patrick harris is the only one that's like in the reason by the way we love our guests we do the the reason why you have to think about it is this your thinking about it because you're concern with what the audience perception is going to be of whether or not that can believe you in that role doing that certain act of sex or being married to a woman or having kids or whatever the fuck it is so that's why i think it's okay it's about believability to not come out where people like just be who you are like no like four actors to it's like it's okay to to for them to keep their private lives private because they want you to go on whatever journey they get cast in right the best actors i think are the ones that you like never see out you never see on magazines you never know you can actually believe them tom roles hardy member rockwell like dana day lewis come on you never never see them out don't know what their real deal is and even when they talk they're kind of weird and like you don't really get a sense of them and so when you see them on screen it's like you go with it because you don't know too much about people like yeah and that's the thing about kevin spacey and like look his downfall was obviously unfortunate but but it's his own doing obviously we knew in town everyone since i moved there in two thousand that he was gay a new kevin spacey was gay he didn't wanna come out i mean it's forced to come out because of what happened to him on this to ship but like he did not want to come out for that exact reason of men he plays so many different roles when you go back and look at all of the shit that kevin spacey's done like it's crazy like american beauty and all that shit where you're like oh man he's played married guys he's played the ref he plays the article race actor villains he's played like mealy macho guys and really blanca feminine guys whatever so he's done it all and i totally understood why he didn't want to always was like yeah i get it i took our child sue this movie at the lake thing here in wilmington and the movie was nine lives never heard of it never seen it but kevin spacey was the lead christopher walken and he was kevin spacey's character was married to jennifer garner in it and this was this is knowing what i know oh now about kevin spacey and everything else i still watch this movie and believed it leapt him that's how good he is and i was like shit it's weird because he never quite said it during a mean it's like well he come out vans let he eventually eventually yes but i'm just saying like back in the day you knew but because he never said it you didn't know when you were watching so it's you know and neil patrick harrison gone girl i did go with it a little bit yeah there was how i met your mother yeah i went with his whole shit but yeah i mean look going back to the scar joe thing and tie in a bow in it it would be like you getting offended because you didn't get the lead white chicks but i'm always offended when i don't get roles but i know that i that i don't deserve anything we've had this conversation when another transgender was wanting to be on the runway for victoria secret right and the real deal about this business is that you do not deserve anything no matter how hard you work no matter how good you are you never nothing is ever given or you don't deserve it so anytime you get anything it's just like holy shit of a million things had to come together you were the right height or the right skin color you were the right thing you know you don't you're able to travel to canada you whatever come together so that you get this role it's never ever the exact best person obviously because i'm not in every movie yeah so it's never the best person and once you realize that and all these transgender once they once they realize that but nothing is ever deserve to them in this industry it's the only thing i can speak to.
