Neil Patrick Harris Got Final Approval Of 'D**k Pic' For New Show On Netflix

Neil Patrick Harris Got Final Approval Of 'D**k Pic' For New Show On Netflix

Neil Patrick Harris has revealed he got final approval for the ‘d**k pic’ in his new Netflix show, saying it was ‘harder than you think’ to choose which one to go for. Watch the trailer here:


Harris, 49, stars in new series Uncoupled, which follows middle-aged New Yorker Michael Lawson as he sets out on the city’s dating scene for the first time in 17 years after being suddenly ditched by his partner. 

A synopsis from Netflix says: “Stunned when his longtime boyfriend moves out, a New York City real estate broker faces the prospect of starting over — and dating again – in his 40s.” 


After nearly two decades off the market, our newly-single protagonist is forced to embrace all of the modern quirks that today’s dating world comes with, including dating apps... and, of course, d**k pics. 

In one scene, we see Lawson try and select the perfect photo for potential lovers – a sequence Harris was heavily involved in, it seems.

Speaking to Page Six, he said: “Not only did I get approval, I was asked to choose said d***, which is harder than you think – no pun intended.”

He explained how he was presented with a ‘flaccid latex phallus’ that was left in his dressing room, and asked to sign off on it, but sadly it didn’t make the cut. 

“It was not OK because I’m more proud of Michael’s member than something that is mass-produced, that you can purchase online,” Harris said, stressing that it takes a lot of care to find the perfect member. 

“So we started looking through photos of people who have taken pics of their dongs in locker rooms,” he said. 

“And you had to find the right angle and girth and manscapery. And I think we found the right mix. 


“I’m proud of what I’m packing downstairs.”

Harris, who married David Burtka in 2014, doesn't envy his character's plight on New York's modern dating scene, letting out a 'guttural sigh' at the thought of online dating at the show's premiere.

“What is Tinder? That’s the straight one?” he asked Netflix's fan platform Tudum on the red carpet.


But he's clearly put at least some thought into it, adding: “First line [of my Tinder bio] would probably be ‘Just broken up with…..not sure what I'm supposed to do…anxious for suggestions….physically.'

"And no emojis. F**k emojis.”

You can watch Uncoupled on Netflix from Friday 29 July.
