Neil Patrick Harris Casts a Gay Spell as Sesame Street's Shoe Fairy
And by "gay" I mean "happy"...
If you thought Feist was cute, watch Neil Patrick Harris play a Shoe Fairy on the 39th season premiere of Sesame Street.
Watch it here.
Harris spoke to AfterElton about the role: "Not the shoe fairy – the fairy shoe person. It’s quite a different connotation. I was asked by Sesame Street to be a part of a song and I just leapt at the opportunity. Jim Henson was the only person I ever wrote a fan letter to as a kid and I’m a wild fan of puppets and the Henson Company in general. They wrote a song, wanted me to sing it. There are all these different mythical characters this season. Sandra Oh plays another type of fairy that Abby Cadabra creates and so we got to do this big musical number with puppets and dancing. It was a great, great afternoon. It’s one demographic that I have yet to win over."
He's casting his best spell:
