'Glee' Adds To Its Student Body With Neil Patrick Harris

By Cara Alwill

Neil Patrick Harris has come a long way from his days on Doogie Hower, MD. The former onscreen medical genius is gearing up for a leading role in another geeks-rule show, "Glee," reports the EW's Ausiello. It’s going to be so gooooood.

Word on the street is that "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy has created a role for the "How I Met Your Mother" star, which is set to include a song and dance routine. The episode will be overseen by the long-awaited guest director, Joss Whedon , and choreographed by Zachary Woodlee, who recently donated dancing tips to the "HIMYM" 100th episode musical number.

So, what can we expect of Whedon’s work? Ryan seems pretty thrilled about it, so it’s safe to say it should be exciting. "Joss directed one of the great musical episodes in the history of television on 'Buffy,'” gushes Ryan, "so this is a great, if unexpected, fit. I’m thrilled he’ll be loaning us his fantastic groundbreaking talent." And who better to star in those episodes than Neil Patrick Harris? There’s no doubt that this is going to be an episode to remember.

The only thing that may stand in the way of this amazing news is that CBS will have to approve Neil Patrick’s appearance on the Fox show. But, as Ausiello pointed out, "HIMYM" and Glee are both produced by 20th Century Fox, so it should work out smoothly.

Jennifer Lopez also recently signed on to do a cameo on "Glee." Joss Whedon's episodes are slated to air this May, and we promise to keep you posted until then!

What do you think about this cameo?
