It has just been confirmed that both Neil Patrick Harris and Patrick Warburton have signed on to be in the new Netflix series Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. Harris will be playing Lemony Snicket, a role played by Jim Carrey in the movie version. And Warburton will grace us with his legendary voice as the narrator. Harris and Warburton are joining the ranks of the already confirmed Malina Weissman and Louis Hynes.
I couldn’t be more excited to hear that two of my favorite television actors are starting up with new projects, and together, no less. It should be yet another great production by Netflix.
Netflix has not yet announced a release date for the new series, but rumors are already going around that filming will be happening this month in Vancouver. A release could be sooner rather than later. Woohoo! I have never seen the movie, and I have yet to read the books, but perhaps now that Netflix is putting a series into action, I’ll have to do both.
