Actor Eric Braeden was not pleased when How I Met Your Mother star and new dad Neil Patrick Harris bashed him via Twitter for passing on a cameo appearance on the show. The Young and the Restless star, who has been acting longer than NPH has been alive, decided to teach the Twitter-happy Harris a lesson.
“I really don’t know who that fellow is. He’s a guy who stars in that series. It’s very unfortunate. First of all, I came back from hip surgery. I was off for three weeks. I’ve doubled my work, 30 to 50 pages a day for me, alone. Everyone knows that I’m exhausted. I was not about to appear on a show for two lines, because that’s what it amounted to.
[With regards to Harris], his choice of words bothered me. It seems to me like a young whippersnapper, having seen himself on a few covers, who’s received a few awards, is now suddenly suffering from the first signs of hubris. I’ve been in the business for 50 years. I’ve seen people come and go and I’m still here. If he is a worthy adversary, he’d better not cross my path. I will let bygones be bygones.”
Well, that will teach Harris to think before he tweets! What do you think of Eric Braeden’s response to the “whippersnapper” formerly known as Neil Patrick Harris?
