Neil Patrick Harris and Oprah Among Barbara Walters’ ‘2014 Most Fascinating People’

Neil Patrick Harris, Oprah, Chelsea Handler and actress Scarlett Johansson will be feted by veteran U.S. newswoman Barbara Walters as part of her 2014 10 Most Fascinating People TV special.

Last year’s broadcast of the annual countdown was billed as the last, because Walters was planning to retire – but bosses at ABC network have brought the special back.

A statement from Walters reads:

“I was absolutely delighted when ABC approached me to do another year of 10 Most Fascinating People. I know we said last year was our last, but there are just too many fascinating people out there… and you never pass up the opportunity to interview Oprah, Neil, Chelsea or Scarlett.”

More names from the list will be announced in the coming weeks, and the most fascinating person of the year will be revealed during the broadcast on December 14.

What other names do you think deserve to make the cut? Let us know in the comments below!
