(PCM) As if Neil Patrick Harris hasn’t proved himself enough of a talent in enough mediums in pop culture, the brilliance that is NPH is adding another line to his resume: author.
The 39-year-old singer, director, producer, three-time Emmy-winning actor, constant awards show host, amateur magician, father of twins and star of stage, television and film (are you out of breath yet?) plans to release a memoir in Spring 2014.
His yet-to-be-titled memoir is said to be “an imaginative nonfiction that delivers an interactive, nonlinear reading experience,” according to a statement by the publisher Crown Archetype. He will “draw upon his love of adventure and surprise in creating the book” as it chronicles his life from his child star days on Doogie Howser, M.D. to coming out, from How I Met Your Mother to parenthood.
The idea of stories and life experiences garnered by his time on the sets of Doogie Howser, M.D., the Harold & Kumar movie franchise, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and How I Met Your Mother alone are enough to ensure that this memoir will not just be funny but it will be legen – wait for it – dary! (Seriously, will that ever get old? We don’t think so!)
But according to NPH himself, the resulting memoir was inspired by another famous face.
“I’m excited to be writing a book of the observations and stories of my life,” NPH is quoted as saying in the statement. “I read with great fondness Tina Fey‘s ‘Bossypants,’ so my plan is just to reprint those exact stories but change the names to people that I knew. What editor would take issue with that?”
We love NPH (and we loved Tina Fey’s Bossypants), so whatever the memoir turns out to be will undoubtedly make its way on the bestsellers list and into all of our home libraries.
