Somewhere between the Emmy Award nominations and the critically-acclaimed stage performances from Broadway to Los Angeles, Neil Patrick Harris still finds room in his busy schedule for his guilty pleasure: comic books and the super heroes within.
Harris is now back on the set of How I Met Your Mother but he had time during the industrys recent vacation to enjoy the transition from comic book reader to super hero actor as the voice as The Flash in the DC Universe original, animated direct-to-DVD release, Justice League: The New Frontier. In its first week of release, reviews and sales of the new film from Warner Home Video, Warner Premiere, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics have been equally stellar, and Harris has been particularly well received in his key role.
To voice a super hero is phenomenal, Harris said. I couldve been the sixth-super-hero-on-the-right and Id have been happy, but Flash actually gets to help save the day, so this is great.
Harris continues to peruse his local comics stores, even taking a moment during a recent interview to voice his dismay when he thought Los Angeles standard Golden Apple Comics had closed and relief when he discovered the store had simply moved from its location of nearly three decades.
