Neil Patrick Harris is Count Olaf In A Series of Unfortunate Events New Teaser Trailer


Netflix has given us so many great shows this year. Comedies, drama, sci-fi, you name it! Seems like we still have a lot of new shows coming our way. A teaser trailer for Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events was released this morning and it finally revealed Neil Patrick Harris as the infamous Count Olaf. My first thought? “What’s wrong with your hair, Barney?”

Based on the internationally best-selling children’s book that inspired a film of the same name back in 2004 starring Jim Carrey, this new 8-episode series will tell the tragic story of Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire, three orphans whose evil guardian Count Olaf (Harris) will do everything in his power to get his hands on their inheritance.

All jokes aside, I think Neil Patrick Harris will do a tremendous job a Olaf, and I’m really looking forward in seeing his performance. The series will also star Patrick Warburton (Lemony Snicket), Joan Cusack (Justice Strauss), Malina Weissman (Violet Baudelaire) and Louis Hynes (Klaus Baudelaire).

Will you be binge-watching? All episodes will be available on January 13. Watch the teaser trailer below and let us know what you think!
