Stage and screen star Neil Patrick Harris is not only narrating the audiobook for The Bro Code for Parents: What to Expect When You're Awesome; he's doing it in character as Barney Stinson, the role he plays on How I Met Your Mother. Simon & Schuster Audio is making it available unabridged on CD and for digital download on October 2.
The book – supposedly co-authored by Stinson with Matt Kuhn (one of the writers for How I Met Your Mother) – helps answer some of the toughest questions facing new parents, such as "Will I ever be able to do awesome things again? Will I be able to afford this?" and "Can I ever have sex again?"
Harris' many stage credits include Assassins, Proof, Cabaret, and Rent and he has hosted Broadway's Tony Awards three times. In addition to Mother, his many other film and television credits include Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Glee, the Harold & Kumar series of films, and his breakout performance in the title role of Doogie Howser, M.D. The actor has also narrated the audio books for The Bro Code and The Playbook – also part of the "Barney Stinson canon."
