As if you needed another reason to be sad over How I Met Your Mother coming to an end...

Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel and the entire cast of this CBS smash appeared opposite James Lipton Bravo's Inside the Actors Studio last week.

Watch the stars totally nail it here:

Someday, the following list will not be necessary.

Someday, celebrities will not need to make any sort of official announcement regarding their sexuality because, quite simply, no one will care and society will be fully accepting of all orientations.

But that day hasn't arrived yet, for reasons explained so eloquently by Ellen Page when she came out as a lesbian on Friday:

Perhaps these stars can make a difference. Maybe they can positively influence others struggling with their sexual identity, using their public platform to push for tolerance.

So, with all that in mind, we join many in Hollywood in saluting Page and other famous folks who are very out and awfully proud:

We've found yet another skill possessed by Neil Patrick Harris.

The actor can sing, he can dance, he can make us laugh... and, boy, can he drink!

He may have taken the stage with four past hosts to kick off the 2013 Emmy Awards, but make no mistake:

Neil Patrick Harris was the man in charge of Hollywood last night.

How did the How I Met Your Mother star do as emcee of television's biggest night?

He zinged Paula Deen (saying she must now refer to Orange is the New Black as "Orange Is the New African American."). He mocked Jimmy Fallon for some "gay" dancing. He turned down a demand from Amy Poehler to "Twerk it."

He was generally safe and cordial, relying more on his general charm than any over-the-top sketch or jokes.

Is that what you look for in an Emmys host? Sound off now and let us know what you thought of NPH on stage?

Neil Patrick Harris kicked off his hosting duties for the 2013 Tony Awards Sunday night with an elaborate opening number that featured Mike Tyson. Seriously.

The eight-minute-long act featured musical recaps of nominees such as Kinky Boots, Motown: The Musical, Pippin, Bring It On and Matilda the Musical.

The highlight wasn't the acclaimed plays, or even NPH however. It was boxer-turned-pop-culture-punchline Tyson, who made a cameo at the 3:15 mark:

He didn't do much, but he didn't have to. Tyson's mere presence on stage at the 2013 Tony Awards was enough to get people talking, as it clearly has.

The former world heavyweight champion recently embarked on a touring one-man show that also hit Broadway (seriously), so it did sort of make sense?

As for Harris, he also closed the show by rapping! Check out his take on "Empire State of Mind" featuring Audra McDonald after the jump ...
