Neil Patrick Harris seems to have it all right now – a hit TV series, award nominations, and a pivotal role in the largest internet sensation of 2008. Oh, and he’s talented to boot.
To quote Dr. Horrible, “Here lies everything/The world I wanted at my feet/My victory’s complete/So hail to the king/Arise and sing.”
Tonight, he adds SNL to his list of credits, something that I see as a major victory. NPH has surpassed underground cult hero fandom and made the jump to mainstream awesomeness!
Musical guest is Taylor Swift, making the move from what felt like an endless supply of hip-hop to a young country star.
Earlier this week, MTV News visited the SNL set to interview Taylor Swift. And of course, NPH made an appearance or two! You can watch that clip HERE.
I have to admit, I have very high expectations for this evening’s show. I won’t accept anything but the best from SNL’s writers. I’m sure they recognize the talent they have on their hands, and have created some of their finest sketches to showcase NPH’s skills.
Saturday Night Live airs on NBC (Global in Canada) at 11:30 EST.
