EXCLUSIVE: How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris has left Paradigm where he had been a client for seven years. With the show coming to an end this coming season, I hear the actor felt he was closing a chapter and wanted a fresh start. Harris has been meeting with other agencies; it is unclear yet where he will be headed. “Neil is a tremendous talent, a wonderful man and we wish him nothing but continued extraordinary success,” Paradigm said. Harris joined Paradigm after the first season of HIMYM, following the retirement from agenting of William Morris’ Steve Dontanville who put him on the show. At Paradigm, Harris went through several renegotiations for the hit CBS series, including the most recent one for the upcoming ninth and final season. He also did two stints as host and producer of the Tony Awards, which earned him two Emmy Awards. (He also won an Emmy in 2010 for his guest stint on Glee and has landed four nominations for HIMYM). On the feature side, while at Paradigm Harris became the star of The Smurfs franchise. He also made his directorial debut, helming a 2011 pilot for CBS.
