It started in “Harold & Kumar Go To Whitecastle,” when NPH played himself. I thought, wow, that guy is a total dilligaf. He’s funny as all get out and dosn’t take himself seriously. But his acting there was just him playing against type and being snarky.
In Dr. Horrible’s Sing A Long Blog, he reaches some kind of Zenith of cool, with the help of Josh Whedon and some really great sidemen. When are the Coen brothers finally going to get it and cast Harris? This little movie is so good, so smart, and so funny. And watch NPH’s nuances as the Mad Scientist/Blogger who’s too shy to talk to his true love, Penny. Good lord this is the best thing on the web.
