Guess we're not the only ones drawn to Neil Patrick Harris.

Renowned illustrator and caricaturist Ken Fallin has created a new stage portrait of the Tony-nominated Hedwig and the Angry Inch star in character as part of a regular feature for Playbill.com.

Fallin, a noted Wall Street Journal illustrator who also creates the poster art for Forbidden Broadway, continues in the artistic tradition of legendary Broadway caricaturist Al Hirschfeld.

The musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch opened April 22 at Broadway's Belasco Theatre with Harris, a recent Out cover boy, starring as Hedwig, a fictional East German rock singer and "slip of a girly boy" living as a female after botched gender-reassignment surgery. See Hedwig production photos here.
