Neil Patrick Harris Receives Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Christopher Polk/Getty Images for PCA(LOS ANGELES) -- Neil Patrick Harris received the 2,448th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday.  His star is located in front of the Frolic Room Bar, near the Pantages Theatre.

Harris, who first achieved fame by playing the titular teen doctor in the 1989-1993 TV series Doogie Howser, M.D., says he never expected to earn a star on the Walk of Fame because he thought it required a huge fan base that needed to raise a lot of money to make it happen.

The 38-year-old actor told ABC News Radio after the ceremony, "I didn't do any of that as far as I know....I'm just pleased as punch that they spelled my name right."

Harris currently stars in the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, which returns for its seventh season on Monday.  He also appeared in the summer box office hit The Smurfs.
