Neil Patrick Harris is a star of many mediums: film, TV, stage, the Web. So it only seems natural that the 38-year-old actor was honored with one on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Thursday.

Harris was accompanied to the ceremony by his partner David Burtka and introduced by his “How I Met Your Mother” co-star Jason Segel, who jokingly said of the former child actor, “Neil has been entertaining us ... for over 60 years.”

The “Smurfs” actor’s star is located outside dive bar the Frolic Room, a convenience that he made sure to capitalize on.

“As much of an honor as this is, unfortunately, it won't be the first time I've been plastered on the sidewalk in front of the Frolic Room,” he joked. “And yes, that includes right now. Happy hour starts early in there.”
