Neil Patrick Harris Is Count Olaf in Netflix's 'A Series of Unfortunate Events'

16 January 2016 2:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When it comes to getting a new TV show off the ground, any production has its ups and downs, and sometimes they come at the same time. Mark Hudis, known for his work on HBO's hit vampire series True Blood, has just exited as Showrunner on the highly anticipated TV series adaptation of Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events. Coming to Netflix later this year, the bad news was met with good when Neil Patrick Harris was announced as the show's evil lead Count Olaf.

Count Olaf will be Neil Patrick Harris's first major TV role since leaving How I Met Your Mother in 2014, where he played bad boy Barney. His new character, originated by Jim Carrey in the 2004 big screen adaptation Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, will be quite the departure. At this time, no replacement has been named for Mark Hudis. Netflix is refusing to comment on either matter. »

The list of guest stars appearing across nine seasons and two movies of The X-Files is long and distinguished: Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, and Bryan Cranston all appeared on the show, and would later work together under Vince Gilligan (who wrote and produced for The X-Files) on his hit AMC series Breaking Bad. Jane Lynch would appear, and later hit it big on Glee. Lucy Liu, Ryan Reynolds, Shia LeBeouf, Jack Black, and Seth Green all made appearances on the show early in their careers.

Plenty of established actors showed up as well: Peter Boyle won an Emmy for his role in Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose, while Cch Pounder was nominated for one for her appearance in Duane Barry from the show’s second season. Ed Asner, Lily Tomlin, and Gary Shandling all appeared on the series, and even Billy Connolly turned up in the show’s second feature film, »
