4. Neil Patrick Harris in “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”


“Hey! NPH wouldn’t do that…”


In between his portrayed penchant for promiscuity on “How I Met Your Mother” and his famed cameo as the omnipotent proponent of drug use, NPH, in “Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle,” Neil Patrick Harris was involved with a lesser know independent gem of a project called “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.” In this musical superhero centric action-comedy written and directed by Joss Whedon, Dr. Horrible is an aspiring evil scientist desperately vying to gain entrance to the Evil League of Evil.

Nathan Fillion assists NPH with his vocal warm ups.

To properly pull off Dr. Horrible, you need the following items:

1 Pair of Khaki Slacks
1 White Long Lab coat (preferably one that buttons on the shoulder)
1 Pair of white lab gloves
1 Pair of lab goggles (the more EVIL the better)
(Optional: A Freeze Ray that freezes time for about 2 minutes and 30 seconds and a Broadway caliber singing voice.)


What’s that? You have a friend coming with? Well, for every Dr. Horrible there is a self-absorbed do gooder of an arch nemesis, Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion).

Captain Hammer:

1 Pair of Dark colored Cargo Pants
1 Blue T-Shirt with the Hammer insignia emblazoned across the chest
1 Pair of Black heavy duty gloves
1 pair of Boots
(Optional: A penchant for narcism and a distinguished yet commanding voice that instils confidence in those fearful and fright in the heart of all foes.)


Yet another person joining the gang? Well no supervillian is complete without their evil sidekick. In this case “The Big Bang Theory’s” very own Simon Helberg plays Dr. Horribles profusely sweaty companion in crime, Moist.



1 Members only-esque Jacket (Must be purchased from a thrift store or pulled from a parents closet)
1 Horribly bland grey colored 90’s graphic T-Shirt
1 Pair of Jeans
1 Generous application of moisture (Baby oil is optional)

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
