In the most random celebrity feud of the year (way to sneak one in at the last minute!), Neil Patrick Harris called soap star Eric Braeden “a D-bag” on Twitter after he bailed on shooting a cameo for How I Met Your Mother at the last minute because he felt the part wasn’t “substantial” enough.
Eric Braeden is a D-Bag. the actor, (Robin’s dad) agreed to a cameo, then last night bailed, saying the part wasn’t ‘substantial’ enough. We’ve recast with Ray Wise, a fantastic actor who makes any part ‘substantial’. Super excited to welcome him to the family! SOURCE
To be fair, Eric is used to more substantial roles, like the one he has on The Young And The Restless. Oh, wait, did I say “substantial”? I meant “shitty”. Yes, “shitty” is the word that best describes Y&R. Seriously, I thought the audience of that show had died already.
