For a reason I can’t explain, Neil Patrick Harris is going to play Count Olaf in Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. I guess they think he’s the next Jim Carey? We were irrationally excited for the TV series but now we’re afraid. NPH as Olaf is a terrible idea. I know I’m speaking prematurely but I honestly don’t see how NPH could ever be good in the role. It’s one of the worst decisions from Netflix. This series could’ve been SO good and SO dark, but if they put Neil Patrick Harris in it, it’s going to be awful. I’m honestly so surprised and so disappointed. Well, I guess you could say this casting decision is unfortunate.
