Actor Neil Patrick Harris has come under fire for getting his alleged "longtime sweetheart," David Burtka, a role on the TV sitcom How I Met Your Mother. A Canada.com brief reported that Harris landed a guest role for Burtka.
Since then, Harris's publicist issued a statement denying the rumors about his sexual orientation. "He's not of that persuasion," the release said.
Burtka is an experienced theater actor but has also had small parts on episodes of The West Wing and Crossing Jordan. (The Advocate)
