According to Neil Patrick Harris, the two are “friends for life”. That’s what the 49-year-old actor said in his recent WIRED Autocomplete interview, in which Harris answers questions gleaned from the web’s top searches about him. Going through the results beginning with “Is Neil Patrick Harris…” his friendship with Jason Segel is questioned. After pretending to ramble for brevity, Harris calls Segel “lovely” and “a really lovely guy” before giving a glimpse of his co-star’s humble nature.
Harris cements their friendship by recalling the duo’s penchant for singing duets from the Broadway classic Les Misérables. The pair have publicly belted out “The Confrontation” — an infamously melodramatic and intense musical showdown between the show’s outlaw hero and his cop opponent — on numerous occasions.
For his part, Segel hasn’t spoken much about his relationship with any of his “How I Met Your Mother” co-stars, aside from his crucial friendship with his onscreen love interest, Alyson Hannigan (via Huffington Post). Segel’s on-set banter with Harris was documented, with the two sharing a cheeky moment while filming (per YouTube). It’s also worth noting that when Harris was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2011, Segel co-starred with Joss Whedon, creator of “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog,” personally revealed. Although they may not see each other as often as they used to, a working relationship that has lasted for decades doesn’t usually dissolve immediately.
