Taking a page from James Franco’s “How to Win at Instagram Using NSFW Photos” book, the How I Met Your Mother actor has shared a naked, sweaty selfie after finishing a performance of Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway. Looking a little bit of The Joker with smudged makeup, Harris snaps a photo of himself posing nude in his dressing room.

He writes:

However, don’t be expecting more backstage portraits to come our way. Though Harris is currently still the lead actor in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Girls star Andrew Rannells is currently slated to replace him on Aug. 20Dammit!
