‘How I Met Your Mother’s’ Neil Patrick Harris sits down with Oprah Winfrey

Neil (l.) will be in the spotlight.

Neil Patrick Harris has had the opportunity to do a number of exciting things over the course of his career — and he can now add sitting next to Oprah Winfrey to the list.

In a new post on Twitter, the “How I Met Your Mother” star confirmed that he welcomed the talk-show host to his house presumably for an “Oprah’s Next Chapter” interview — and then, his fiance David Burtka managed to turn the tables on her:

“Yet another My Life Is Random moments: Oprah came over to our house today. I made her pizza … Then @Davidburtka got to interview @Oprah herself for an @ENews exclusive. He did a great job, very proud of him!”

Neil has quite a bit coming up on his plate in the coming weeks. Not only is he the host of the 2012 Tony Awards on CBS June 10 (in addition to the months of preparation that come along with that), but the two-part season finale of his hit comedy is set to air on Monday, May 14. At the moment, however, it’s unclear whether or not Barney’s future bride is going to be either Quinn (Becki Newton), Robin (Cobie Smulders), or something else.

Stay tuned — once we know more about what Neil and Oprah talked about for their interview, we will let you know here at the page.
