Neil Patrick Harris Directs Episode of 'How I Met Your Mother' Airing 1/18

Multitalented Neil Patrick Harris is set to step behind the camera and direct an episode of 'How I Met Your Mother' this week, which will air on January 18. Though a series regular, this will Mark Harris's directing debut, and a rarity for the show as Pamela Fryman has directed 92 of 'How I Met Your Mother's' 97 episodes.

Amanda Peet will guest star in the episode as an attractive co-worker of Marshall's (Jason Segal) who stirs up trouble between Marshall and Lily, but not in the usual way.

Equally successful on stage and screen, Neil Patrick Harris continues to demonstrate his creative versatility. He can currently be seen as the womanizing Barney Stinson in the fifth season of the hit CBS comedy series, "How I Met Your Mother," a role which garnered him a 2009 Golden Globe nomination and three consecutive Emmy Award nominations. Harris' Barney is best known for his hilarious catchphrases, penchant for suits, and foolproof ways of picking up women. Named one of the "2008 Entertainers of the Year" by Entertainment Weekly, Harris served as host of the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards and the 63rd Annual Tony Awards.
