Neil Patrick Harris: 5 Movies I'm Looking Forward to Seeing This Year
neil patrick harris 5 movies I can't wait to seeJust because Neil Patrick Harris is in movies doesn't mean that watching them is work, too.

In the video above, Moviefone's Guest Editor reveals the five movies he's looking forward to seeing most this year -- and we have to admit, he makes a compelling argument for all of them.


"'Elysium' looks very, very cool," he says. "I like that whole idea that there's like the upstairs-downstairs thing and they're breaking in. That seems really exciting."

In addition to the Matt Damon action epic, Harris is also looking forward to the comedy (and other aspects) of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, "Don Jon."

"I want to see a movie called 'Don Jon' that's coming out," he reveals. "Joseph Gordon-Levitt directed it and starred in it and he's really sexy in it. And that's reason enough to watch the film. But he's also super-talented, and I want to direct someday too, so I'm a little jealous of that."

And then the truth really comes out.

"But I can't wait to, you know, watch [Joseph Gordon-Levitt] for hours," he jokes. "At least in a movie house and not just standing in front of his house, looking in the window."

Harris's implied stalker tendencies aside, the actor would be remiss if he didn't mention a pair of highly anticipated family movies coming out in the next few months.

"Lastly -- and I'm not just saying this -- is a tie between two family films. One is called 'Smurfs 2.' It's the sequel to the hit film 'Smurfs 1,'" he says with a wink. "There's also -- and this is where I'm torn because it's kind of a tie -- this other movie, again a family film, is called... and let me get the name right... 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2.'"
