Neil Patrick Harris Insists He Won't Be "Too Vanilla" As Emmy Host!

We absolutely cannot wait for Neil Patrick Harris to scream "time to suit up" into a mirror on Sunday, and then host the Emmys!

However, NPH made it clear that he wants the show to be legen…wait for it…dary and not legen…wait for it…dairy!

In a recent interview, the magic man revealed his cards by saying he's trying to shy away from Hollywood bashing, but on the other hand he also doesn't want to be too saccharine:

"My sense of humor has never been about jabbing at people. I've never understood that logic. We're celebrating a special occasion, and the host is openly mocking someone in front of peers? That's what roasts are for! I like for things to be inclusive and fun. But I don't want to be too vanilla, and the dad part is good because I'll be juggling my kids in the opener. A chain saw and two kids. We stopped feeding them six weeks ago, so they've each lost about 8 pounds in preparation for it."

Excuse us while we LOL for days/call child services!

Hmm we wonder if Neil's comment will cause a divide in the ice cream community, and churn away viewers!

Regardless, Neil we know you'll kill it on Sunday, and whether you go Vanilla, Pistachio, Chocolate, or Cake Batter on us, we'll still want another scoop of you!
