Mrs. Neil Patrick Harris to Guest Star on Web Series 'West 40s'

Some casting news for you.

David Burtka -- who is best known for being married to gay-icon-after-being-pushed-out-of-the-closet Neil Patrick Harris -- is slated to join the cast of "West 40s," Mark Sam Rosenthal and Brian Sloan’s web series about five gay men stumbling through their 40s in Hell’s Kitchen NYC

From a release:
David Burtka will play a major guest-starring role in Episode 3, slated for production in January 2019. Burtka has been acting in film, TV and theater since moving to New York City in the 1990s. He has appeared on "The West Wing," "American Horror Story" and as a celebrity judge on "RuPaul’s Drag Race." He is also a professional chef, having studied at Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena with appearances on Food Network’s "Beat Bobby Flay" and as a judge on "Worst Cooks in America." He has a book coming out in 2019, "Life is a Party." His role on "West 40s" will be his first major scripted role in a few years, after focusing mainly on his culinary career.  
“I love this series and I’m honored to be a part of it. I have always been a fan of Brian Sloan’s work and I am so happy I finally get to work him,” said Burtka, 43. Burtka and his husband, who have been together nearly 15 years, are New Yorkers too, having moved permanently to the city in 2015 when Harris’s run on "How I Met Your Mother" ended. 
Should be fun to see. Is Episode 2 ever coming out?

i don't know what it is about david burtka, but i JUST DON'T LIKE HIM.......can't explain it, i don't know him, just something about him irritates me. i think its because he's riding his husband's coat tails, and is trying TOO hard to be famous for something more than just being a celeb's husband.....
