2 Neil Patrick Harris Neil Patrick Harris Neil Patrick Harris is an American actor, writer, producer, comedian, magician, and singer. He is known primarily for his comedy roles on television and his dramatic and musical stage roles.

Hahaha, this guy! The main reason to watch How I Met Your Mother! And he look's good too And I have to congratulate his recent fatherhood! That Kid's childhood is going to be LEGEN... Wait for it... DARY. Neil Harris for the win!

Alright, acting wise, he has yet to have a really serious role where he can show off his talent. But how can you help but love this wonderful man. He is adorable, wonderful, creative and funny. Sad he bats for the other team, but only because that leaves no shot for me.

Actually he shows off much of his talent in How I Met Your Mother. - Juan-Luis

I love Neil Patrick Harris! He is my favourite actor! He is so funny when he portrays as Barney Stinson!

Whenever I hear people say that an "Out" gay actor could never be taken seriously in a straight role I think of Mr Harris, and how effectively he proves them wrong,

Would gladly doogie his howser.

8 Jim Parsons Jim Parsons James Joseph "Jim" Parsons is an American actor. He is known for playing Sheldon Cooper in the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory.

Great actor, make you smile every time he is on the air. Thank god for guys like him that can make you smile

Incredibly talented comedian that always seem to make us laugh. He has a great writing staff behind him, but, I doubt anyone else could deliver those complicated technical dialogues as well.

Jim Parsons is by far the cutest and most talented of any actor on this list, he should be #1.

I really love him so much. He's deserve all the Emmy's.
