Poll Winner: Neil Patrick Harris

How I Met Your Mother hunk Neil Patrick Harris defeated Alan Ritchson to win the title of hotter television star.  I’ve got to be honest, I think Alan Ritchson’s just about the perfect man, so I disagree with the result.  But, Neil Patrick Harris won with 68% of the votes, so he certainly has his fans, and he’s not exactly bad looking himself.  Here’s the bio and ten pics for the winner:

Born and raised in New Mexico, Harris began acting at a young age, and at 15, he acted in Clara’s Heart, which he earned a Golden Globe for.  After a few movies as an adult, Harris found success by playing a fictionalized version of himself in the Harold and Kumar film series.  His television career began in 1989, when he won the lead role in Doogie Howser, M.D.  But he truly exploded on the scene in 2005, when he landed the role of womanizer (slightly ironic) Barney Stinson on the comedy How I Met Your Mother.  Harris came out as gay in 2006, saying, “I am quite proud to say I am a content gay man.”  He announced his engagement to his partner David Burtka in 2011, after New York passed the Marriage Equality Act.
