Neil Patrick Harris, Amanda Peet

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for Tony Awards;

Amanda Peet may be getting a call soon from the folks over at How I Met Your Mother.

Neil Patrick Harris says he's itching for the 2012 star to guest on the CBS show...

"I have a bit of a boner for Amanda lately," Harris told me last night at GQ's Men of the Year party at the Chateau Marmont. "You know, she's never guest-starred on any shows before and plus, she's already worked with Jason Segel once on [the upcoming flick] Gulliver's Travels."

Perhaps HIMYM producers should enlist Segel to make the first call. Harris laughed, "It's always easier for us to try and entice people who have worked with other castmembers."

As for being named Trailblazer of the Year by GQ, Harris said he's, of course, honored, but especially thrilled with the photo they ran of him looking like a very dapper magician in a velvet suit (top hat and bunnies included!). "It's all magic-based and very Dean Martin-y," he said. "It's one of my favorite pictures."

Fellow honorees at last night's soiree included Clint Eastwood, Tom Ford, J.J. Abrams, Kobe Bryant, Inglourious Basterds star Christoph Waltz and that hunky tall glass of vampire blood Alexander Skarsgård, along with January Jones, Shenae Grimes, Hunter Parrish, Chris O'Donnell, Eli Roth and Ben McKenzie.

Sarah Silverman said she was there to hang with Hangover funnyman Zach Galifianakis. But it seems someone forgot to tell her that he was an actual honoree.

"I didn't know he was on the cover because I live under a rock," Silverman said. "I was just meeting him to go to this party, but I didn't know it was a party in his honor."
