Some suggestions for you :

I've done plenty of daredeviling - from white-water rafting to bungee jumping. But I think the most fearless was hosting the Emmy Awards. It was overwhelming, and I definitely had to leave fear at the door.

I pride myself in being able to straddle demographics, and if that was said as Barney Stinson, it would mean a little different thing.

I enjoy being a hyphenate. I've always thought of my career as a plate spinner in the circus.

In my 20s, I mostly ate burritos and nachos, with the occasional burger.

I thought the idea of 'Smurfs' lent itself to the 3-D environment pretty well, I think, better than some of the farm animal movies that have been done before. I was a fan of the 'Smurfs' and they come with their own fan base, which I thought was nice.

Starship Troopers was great. It was great fun to work on something with blue screens and big budget special effects. Denise Richards was nice to look at too, of course.

Whenever I wasn't in school with a tutor three hours a day, I'd get a knock and be rushed to set and they'd be waiting and I'd film my thing and then I'd go back to school again.

I'm a games and theory kind of guy. I love puzzles, so it was fun dissecting Shakespeare's prose.

The voiceover thing is very selfless. You go in there and they've hired you for your voice, but they know exactly what they want, and the writer's there and he knows exactly how it's supposed to be said. So you can't really argue with them, you just have to let them tell you what to do and then do it.

I'm in a play on Broadway, I have an animated TV show coming up, I have a few movies that just came out.

I'm not the best cruise ship crooner. I'm not the best karaoke guy.

I've gotten to hang out with Elmo, I'm the Fairy Shoeperson on 'Sesame Street'. So hopefully our kids will get to see and hear me as much as they're able.

The theater is reaching as many different demographics as it can now.

We're blessed on 'How I Met Your Mother' to feel like we're doing a bit of a funny playlet everyday.
