Neil Patrick Harris rolls out Emmys red carpet
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Neil Patrick Harris, host of the Emmy awards for excellence in the TV industry, isn't planning to leave the stage during Sunday's ceremony unless he's really, really gotta go.
"I'll be staying on stage the whole show - with a few exceptions," the second-time Emmy host teased after ceremoniously unravelling the red carpet on Wednesday morning. "I thought about having a colostomy bag, but I thought that would not be good for the first few rows. It would be like a Gallagher show if things go wrong, so I may have to excuse myself for a minute or three a couple of times during the show."
Harris, whose How I Met Your Mother is entering its ninth and final season, said he doesn't feel like he has to prove himself after previously hosting the Emmy and Tony Awards.
"There's a lot of awards, so I thankfully don't have to do a lot of work," he said. "I get to come up with some funny one-liners. If someone vomits, I get to joke about it, but there's not a lot of vomit. Charlie Sheen hasn't been on Two and a Half Men for years."
