Neil Patrick Harris wants to be the next Ed Sullivan

“In a perfect world, in five years I’m Ed Sullivan.”

That’s Neil Patrick Harris, describing his career ambitions in a new interview with Charlie Rose, just after NBC announced that it’d ordered a 10-episode variety series fronted by NPH to bow in 2015.

Roll the clip to see what else Harris thinks, hopes and wishes for in his new gig to bring back the variety showcase to TV. The full interview airs later this week.
