Zap2it: "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" is your fourth Broadway show; you’ve had massive TV hits, done film and Web. What domain do you want to master next?
Neil Patrick Harris: I want to work on parenting. That’s the challenging one at the moment. The show is wonderful and structured, but the show doesn’t allow me to put them down to sleep. I see them once I wake up, only for a small period of time. I am regretting that. They are 3 1/2.
Zap2it: One of the best parts of Hedwig is how you ad-lib and get to abuse people who misbehave at the theater. Is it fun?
Neil Patrick Harris: Hedwig has the ability to chastise and she does not mince words. We are still early in the run. I have been playing around with just how ruthless she should be.
Zap2it: What has surprised you about being a parent?
Neil Patrick Harris: I am amazed at the kind of mischief they get into. Their mischief is just seeing what will get them into trouble and what won’t — once they figure out what the boundaries are. But I have to give utmost credit to [my husband] David, who is an extraordinary parent and a great person and I am anxious for him to be able to be nominated for a Tony himself — in chapters to come. He has sacrificed enough for me.
The rest of his life story is actually even more badass,
if you can believe it. After the war, Lucas went home and fulfilled his promise to his mother to finish school, attending his first day of Ninth Grade with his Medal of Honor around his neck. He finished college, went on a USO speaking tour, was married three times, survived his second wife’s attempt to hire a hitman to murder him (she hadn’t got the message from the Japanese that this guy was impervious to conventional weapons), and then, at age 40, decided to get over his fear of heights by enlisting in the 82nd Airborne as a paratrooper. On his first training jump, both parachutes failed to open. As his team leader astutely pointed out, “Jack was the last one out of the plane and the first one on the ground.” He fell 3,500 feet through the air without a parachute. He attempted a badass commando roll just as he was about to splat on the earth Wile E. Coyote style. He not only lived, he walked away unscathed. Two weeks later, he was back in the plane on his second training jump. That one went better. Four years later he finished his tour as a Captain in the 82nd Airborne Division. His adventures in miraculously surviving death now complete, ran a successful business selling beef to people outside Washington, DC, wrote an appropriately-named autobiography titled Indestructible, met every president from Truman to Clinton, had his original Medal of Honor citation laid out in the hull of the USS Iwo Jima, and died in 2008 at the age of 80. From cancer, of all things

What if there were women’s cleanliness products that were marketed the way Old Spice stuff is? Like they had names like “Lioness” and “Sycamore” and “Wildfire” and “Hunter’s Moon” and they were touted as making you smell like a warrior queen who does not suffer fools and conquers all she beholds
