The star of CBS’ long-running series “How I Met Your Mother” was responsible for bringing The Muppets back to the big screen.
In the movie he sings the wonderful “Man or Muppet”, a song that is nominated for an Academy Award and was written by previous Guest DJ Bret McKenzie! We learn in his Guest DJ Project set that he’s been playing music for most of his life, including teaching himself piano to land girls in high school.
He shares the inspirational musical number he listens to before he hits the stage, praises Bruce Springsteen for being a “tough dude” who sings about love “very vulnerably”, and calls “Bohemian Rhapsody” the “weirdest song of all time”.
