Harris to get Hasty Pudding Award

Neil Patrick Harris has been named man of the year by Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals.

The Emmy Award-winning actor, who made his name on television as child doctor Doogie Howser M.D. and more recently stars as the womanising Barney in How I Met Your Mother will be given his pudding pot following a parade through Harvard Square and a roast scheduled for February 7.

Hasty Pudding Theatricals is the America's oldest undergraduate drama troupe, dating to the late 18th century, which presents awards annually to performers who have made a lasting and impressive contribution to entertainment.

Last week, Helen Mirren was named woman of the year.

Neil has also appeared on stage and in film, including in the Harold And Kumar and Smurfs movies.
