  1. Yep, that's about his speed - doing something cool well, WELL after everybody else did it.

  2. Isn't NPH about a week late... enough with the "challenges" already and just write a damn check!

  3. To the boneheads above: this isn't about timing or doing it first when it was fresh and chic. It's about charity. These "it's so last week" comments are jaded and dull, so "last week" themselves.

  4. NPH looks terrible! He's not aging well at all. And that lanky body needs some meat. If he were straight, no homo on this page would give a rat's ass about him. Enough!

  5. He lost the weight for "Hedwig..."

  6. I really would prefer if they said "I wrote my check and now here is my challenge to ...". Then DUMP! BTW, too late doesn't really make sense to me. The concept of this type of thing is to keep it in the news as long as possible. If everyone did it all at once it would done, over, and forgotten about.

  7. "With the help of his family."

    Burtka also has two children from a previous relationship.

    I guess this is Burtka's "family" now.

  8. Lol! 1 loser commenter posting under 3 different names but with one IP address. Jackass, you don't get to pick when you do it. You have to be challenged to do it. And he did it very well. Love him and his family.

    BTW, he is skinny b/c he lost a huge amount of weight to play the tranny Hedwig on Broadway. Trannies are largely unhealthy, so it was necessary for him to become gaunt.

  10. To everyone saying anything to the effect of this being "so last week" or criticizing all the celebs doing this for self-promotion and other crap opinions, watch this video of a guy suffering ALS and his appreciation to all of this awareness:

  11. Now that the Catholics have come out against it, I trust and hope that the ALS challenges are no longer passé.

  12. I'd be more impressed if these millionaires just quietly wrote a check instead of doing these self indulgent videos.
    I agree with Josh, watch the incredibly moving YouTube video of the terrified young man who has just started feeling the effects of ALS, it's much more important than any celebrity pouring ice water over their $1000 hair cuts.

  13. NPH, take a sabbatical. Just go be a person. You're too much with us. You're beginning to smell bad.

  14. Neil is way too thin. I read that it had something to do with the Broadway play he just finished.
    He looks like he just wandered out of a concentration camp.
    Neil - Start Eating!!!

  15. This yesterday stunt has collected $53 million and continue to to gain more. I'm sorry to those people who are not entertained by them. Your negativity is not helping collecting money are you? Try putting a dollar in a jar every time you need to do a drive by snide remark. Send the money to some worthy cause.

  16. Couldn't they use confetti instead of clean safe water? Enough already with your weird self promotions. Just write a check.

  17. Wow, except for a few post, I've never seen so many trolls on one post. I say, you go NPH!

  18. I'd love to have Nathan Fillion as my nemesis.

  19. New York bridges misses their trolls. ALS and NPH are both winners. More than a few evil witches need a bucket of ice water thrown over their heads. NOW, that would be charitable.

  20. M. Scott, love your comment !!

  21. A talented, hardworking, sweetheart of a man and oh what an adorable family. PLUS NPH has the cutest nipples.

  22. ROCKER ROCKER - NPH has a "lanky body" and "is not aging well" because he purposely lost something like 20+ pounds for his role in "Hedwig and The Angry Inch", on Broadway. And he was fabulous in the role.

    Posted by: John | Aug 25, 2014 10:42:42 AM

  23. Burtka is not just his "partner." They are also legally married. He's NPH's husband. Geez, get your research right for once!

  24. I watched the video and thought, "What beautiful kids. What a lovely family." And then I read the comments and thought, "A lot of people are prisoners of unhappy childhoods."

    I understand rage. But do you have to spew it in our faces? It feels really bad.
