Neil Patrick Harris Is Looking Forward To Britney's Return To HIMYM ... I Think

While doing promo for his new movie Harold and Kumar 2: Escape from Guantanamo Bay, Neil Patrick Harris was asked by Extra TV about his feelings concerning the report that Britney Spears will be making another guest appearance on his TV show, How I Met Your Mother. NPH wants to make sure that everyone knows that he didn't make any disparaging remarks about Britney's guest stint the first time around and says that he is looking forward to welcoming her back to the set:

"Extra" sat down with How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris who spoke about Britney Spears' rumored return to the hit show, making the sequel to cult classic Harold and Kumar Goes to White Castle and whether he's made plans to return to Broadway. As for whether or not Britney Spears will reprise her role as Abby on HIMYM, Harris responded, "I don't know if it's true or not actually. I read it online as well, so nothing has been confirmed to me in any way, but we would be so lucky to have her. She was great fun the first time." When asked to set the record straight about the rumored negative comments he made regarding Spears, Harris explained, "I made no comments about her that I needed to correct. I've said all along that she was great on the show and she was and she was fun to be around ... We're very protective of her while we're making the show so there's not a lot of dirt to be said ... I think it was a slow news day ... It's interesting for me to see how the media's game of telephone, especially on the internet, plays out."

When asked the same thing by MTV News, NPH reiterated his lurve for Brit Brit:

It's been a long, long time since anyone asked Britney Spears for an encore, but the singer is reportedly planning on taking a second bow in her role as a ditzy receptionist on the CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother." After her first appearance on March 24 catapulted the comedy to its best ratings ever among viewers ages 18-to-49, Spears is scheduled to return to the show for another episode, according to People magazine. "The show is ecstatic, and so is Britney," an unnamed source told the magazine. "She had so much fun the first time around, she really wanted to come back. It was a mutual decision to work together more." ... co-star Neil Patrick Harris seemed to confirm the news to MTV News on Sunday at the New York Comic-Con. "She's coming back again, so I hear, so it should be fun," the "Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay" actor said. He added that his enthusiasm is not exactly a reversal from the comments he made two weeks after Spears first appearance on the show, when he said he doubted that Spears, 26, would join the ensemble as a recurring character. "The media takes things out of context and makes other stories out of them, which was pretty much that in a nutshell," he said in reference to his previous statement. "She's not an actress," he told MTV News earlier this month. "She played a role for a week, and did a really nice job, but the workload involved with doing memorization and the purging of comedy over and over is really, really hard. I mean, it takes a strong skill set to do that every week."

It's not that I don't believe Neil's sincerity but I really don't hear that much geniuneness from his comments. I'm sure the last thing he wants to do is talk about Britney Spears when he's promoting one of his movies but the mantle has fallen on his shoulders to do so. Britney Spears gave HIMYM such stellar ratings, of course they are going to have her back ... I don't know that I'd be happy to be overshadowed by that kind of attention on my TV show so ... I can understand if folks aren't all that excited about her guest stints. All in all, if more folks are watching the show, for whatever reason, then any attention is positive attention. In the end, I'm sure that all the HIMYM cast members will be happy to have Britney back on the set ... son long as she keeps doing guest stints and doesn't become a series regular ;) [Source, Source]
