Harris told the New York Observer, "I’m super focused on Hedwig at the moment, so that hasn’t even been a conversation at all." The former How I Met Your Mother star is currently a Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Itch. He added, "But I’m a big fan of CBS and Les’s [Moonves, CEO of CBS], so who knows?"
When asked if the job would be "fun," Harris mused, "It would be an asinine amount of work."
While Harris would make history by being an openly-gay talk show host, several groups are seeking someone other than a white male to take a spot on the highly-competitive talk show circuit – such as Chelsea Handler, Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Rock, or Tina Fey.
