Hubbies Neil Patrick Harris And David Burtka Team Up for London Fog Ad Campaign

Screen Shot 2014-11-14 at 12.51.20 PM

Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka are sharing more than their lives together--they've now starred in their first-ever joint ad campaign, sporting trench coats for renowned retailer London Fog.

The series of images, part of London Fog's holiday season campaign, debuted on the brand's Facebook page this week where the handsome Hollywood couple took over the banner, receiving thousands of likes and hundreds of comments, most of which are very positive. The main image prominently features the two actors' wedding bands from their high-profile marriage in September. Dari Marder, the chief marketing officer for the brand said London Fog was looking for a modern and iconic couple for the campaign and had few concerns about any potential backlash. 

"We have a smart consumer. We think they’ll get it," said Marder, in an interview with Women's Wear Daily. "We don’t think there will be an issue. I think it will play well. It’s a beautiful, powerful, intimate moment."

The print ads will appear in the December issues of fashion magazines in both the U.S. and U.K. The pair will also appear in spring ads for the London Fog in 2015, just in time for Neil's' hosting of the Oscars and David's starring in a new Broadway musical about marriage.

Neil Patrick Harris and Chris Pratt Fight It Out For 2014 'Sexiest Man Alive' - VIDEO

Sexiest man

Chris Pratt and Neil Patrick Harris are reported to be front-runners for People magazine’s annual “Sexiest Man Alive” issue, according to Daily News.

A People insider said Guardians of the Galaxy “made Chris Pratt a star and overhauled his image from that cute guy on ‘Parks and Recreation’ to a buff heartthrob. If he can make blockbuster money, he can sell a ton of magazines is the thinking. What ‘The Hangover’ did for Bradley Cooper this film did for Chris. It’s his year.”

The magazine staffer added that as the potential first openly gay “Sexiest Man Alive,” Neil Patrick Harris “would certainly make news and generate buzz for the magazine. Plus, Neil is going to be hosting the Oscars. He’s in ‘Gone Girl,’ he was just on Broadway. He’s also happily married with kids. He is having an amazing year.”

Last year, People named Adam Levine as “Sexiest Man Alive.” The honor went to Channing Tatum in 2012 and to Bradley Cooper in 2011.

Head over to Vocatic for their list of five men you forgot were bestowed with the honor (hint - it includes Nick Nolte) and watch a Daily News report (even though they think only women "anxiously await the results"), AFTER THE JUMP... (warning: autoplay)

Neil Patrick Harris Slated To Host Live NBC Variety Show


Neil Patrick Harris is continuing his campaign to bring back old school Hollywood charm with an American adaption of Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, a popular live British variety hour show. Between his recent role as Gone Girl’s Desi Collings, headlining in Hedwig, upcoming guest role on American Horror Story: Freakshow and hosting both the Tonys and the Emmys on multiple occasions, Harris has proven that he has the chops for this kind of entertainment

The program’s initial 10-episode run of will air on NBC, but the network is being tight-lipped about a specific release date or a name. What we do know is that the show will feature musical numbers, A-list guests, comedy, and mini game shows.

"Now that I've seen many seasons, my face hurts," Harris said in a statement about catching up on the British version of the show. "Nothing like this has been done before and its unique structure fits right into my random skill set. I can't wait to roll up my sleeves and have some fun!"

'American Horror Story' Recruits Neil Patrick Harris And David Burtka For 'Freak Show'


Neil Patrick Harris is a very busy man.

He wrapped his Tony Award-winning turn in Hedwig and the Angry Inch over the summer, was just announced as the host of next year's Academy Awards and can be currently seen in David Fincher's Gone Girl.

On top of that crowded schedule, he's now been confirmed to make an appearance on two upcoming episodes of American Horror Story: Freak Show. But this time, he's bringing husband David Burtka along with him.

TVLine reports:

Harris will appear in Freak Show‘s 11th and 12th episodes as a chameleon salesman, while Burtka will turn up in the season finale (Episode 13) in what I’m told is a sexy storyline with Jessica Lange’s batty chanteuse. Earlier this month, Horror Story puppetmaster Ryan Murphy — who invited AHS super-fan (and good friend) NPH on the show via Twitter back in August — told TVLine of Harris’ forthcoming Freak Show stint: “He had very specific ideas for what he wanted to do, and I had very specific ideas, so we’re working on melding those.” Murphy and Harris’ previous collaboration — a Season 1 episode of Glee — netted the How I Met Your Mother actor an Emmy for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series.

Look for their episodes of the FX series to air in January 2015.
