Neil Patrick Harris spoke about the role while discussing his career with GQ (via YouTube). Harris explained that he was excited about getting the role because he was classified as a television actor at the time due to his work on Doogie Howser, M.D.

“In the mid-90s, when you were an actor on television, you were not welcome in the film world. And, in turn, if you were a film actor, you were not very welcome in the world of television. They were very different beasts,” Harris said. “So after doing a TV show at a relatively young age, I kept trying to do movies. But I was just a TV presenter, and that’s okay. change.”

Unfortunately for Harris, his role in Starship Trooper didn’t turn out to be the turning point in his career that he had hoped. Although he had small roles in subsequent films such as The Proposal and The Next Best, he mainly worked in television until 2004. It was then that Harris’ cameo in “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” proved that he was doing much sharper things than he was previously known. The following year, he landed the role of joyful ladies’ man Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother.

However, Harris’ film career never took off. After Starship Troopers, his next major role in a drama film came in 2014 when he landed the role of Desi Collins in Gone Girl. However, Neil Patrick Harris had a career that most actors would envy.
