Juke Vox Heroes: Neil Patrick Harris

Welcome to the first post in what will be an occasional series called Juke Vox Heroes. This feature will identify an actor that has lent his or her vocal stylings to a surprising number of places and examine their vast canon of work.

I couldn’t think of a better actor to kick-off the series than the great Neil Patrick Harris. Born in Albuquerque NM, he burst on the scene in 1989 as the boy genius doctor Douglas “Doogie” Howser on the hit series Doogie Howser, MD. Now 36, Mr. Harris has since appeared in many film, television and Internet roles. Of course he can also be found weekly as as the dressed-to-the-nines womanizer Barney "Barnman" Stinson on CBS’ comedic tour-de-force, How I Met Your Mother.

Mr. Harris has conquered almost every medium imaginable (yes, even Twitter), this includes little known and extensive voice work in animated productions, video games and audio books.
