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!

Harris finished off a recent vacation in Mexico by chronicling an afternoon of drinking via, beginning his fun day in the sun by writing:

"Last day of our Mexico adventure. Let's see just how many margaritas I can drink."

As you can see, it began innocently enough.

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 ...

Controversy is swirling over a new CBS ad for Super Bowl XLVII, which stars Neil Patrick Harris and features a shot of him wearing a football player's eye black with the date of the big game written across the front.

Because mediocre quarterback Tim Tebow is known to scrawl bible verse references across his eye black, a writer for WND.com believes CBS is clearly making fun of the religion with this spot.

Neil Patrick Harris Super Bowl Ad Still

The site quotes a viewer of the commercial as saying the network is "pushing a gay agenda by using [Harris], and they’re mocking Christians at the same time.”

Harris, of course, stars on How I Met Your Mother and came out of the closet in 2006.

Do you agree with this connection? Is CBS making fun of Christians by having a famous gay person wearing eye black with letters across it?

Neil Patrick Harris has been tapped to host the Tony Awards for the third time, according to reports. The actor hosted the annual award show in 2009 and 2011.

The 38-year-old How I Met Your Mother star, who will also be serving as a producer on this year's telecast, confirmed the news in a statement.

The 2012 Tony Awards air Sunday, June 10.

Neil P. Harris

“I’m thrilled to be a part of this year’s Tony Awards," he said. "Not only will I be shining a spotlight on the best that Broadway has to offer, but hopefully I’ll score some free house seats to a show – or five!”

Probably a fairly safe bet.

“Neil is the ultimate showman,” adds CBS Entertainment’s Jack Sussman.

“He brings great talent, energy and creativity to the Tony stage and usually a surprise or two. I can’t wait to see what he has in store this year.”

How time flies. Neil Patrick Harris and longtime partner David Burtka commemorated the one-year birthday of their adopted twin boy and girl this week.

Tweeted NPH yesterday: "Things I dig: our twins Gideon and Harper, who are one year old today! They are glorious. So proud to be their Papa."

Aww. The How I Met Your Mother star is such a sap.

The 38-year-old star added: "And I'm in awe of, and so grateful for, David Burtka. He is, in my humble opinion, the greatest dad in the history of ever."

Aww again.

Gideon and Harper are certainly lucky to have two adoring fathers in Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, who announce their engagement this summer upon the passage of New York State's gay marriage equality law. Happy birthday, kids!
