Wonder what Neil Patrick Harris has been doing in between “Harold and Kumar” movies and reprising his role as Doogie Howser for Old Spice? Well, not only has he been in “How I Met Your Mother”, he also stars in the role of “Doctor Horrible” in the Web Event “Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”.
The Website is aptly named “Doctor Horribles Sing-Along Blog”.Directed by Joss Wheden (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Titan A.E.) the web event stars Harris along with Nathan Fillion (Desperate Housewives and.. well.. Buffy), Felicia Day (Monk and yes…. Buffy) and Simon Helberg (Evan Almighty, Van Wilder, but no Buffy).
Think of this as a Villains blog with the “Cop Rock” feel. Harris is the Arch Villain that likes Penny (Felicia Day) but is constantly foiled in evildoings as well as love by Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion). It is a musically filled show about love, hate and conflict. It is all told through Dr. Horribles’ Video Blog.
The show, in 3 acts, is found at http://www.drhorrible.com and the blog is at http://doctorhorrible.net/. The Acts are being hosted by Hulu, but you might want to view it soon for they are only up for a limited time.
The show is a little cheezy but is also entertaining. I especially like the “Cowboy Chorus” that shows up from time to time. Should be a fun excursion, especially if you are into Superheros and Musicals.
