Picture of Love with Neil Patrick Harris from Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris is nothing if not a creative actor. The "How I Met Your Mother" star has expanded his versatility yet again with a short online video -- a silent movie called "Picture of Love" -- on Funny or Die.

In the video posted on Wednesday (Aug. 20), Harris offers an ode to silent-movie greats like Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. The film shows a mostly sad-faced Harris sitting alone at a table. In order to get some company, he places the photo of a woman -- apparently beloved -- on the table as well. Alas, it's not enough for the flesh-and-blood man.

There is, fortunately, a solution. Harris grabs another photo, this one of himself, and sets it up on the table next to the first. Happy at last, the hero can walk away.
