Neil Patrick Harris is an American actor, singer, comedian, writer, producer, and television host. He played the role of Bart Simpson in the made-for-television film Blood on the Blackboard: The Bart Simpson Story.


The film announcer introduced him as "TV's Doogie Howser". In sharp contrast to actual events, the film depicted Bart murdering Principal Skinner in cold blood while a frightened Fat Tony tried to talk him out of it.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

At the time "Bart the Murderer" originally aired, Harris's best-known role was as the title character in Doogie Howser, M.D.. He has since enjoyed a successful acting career and in the 2000s and 2010s his most prominent role was starring in How I Met Your Mother.
