Neil Patrick Harris Is Unrecognizable in New Lemony Snicket Role

Original 'Gilmore Girls' Producer Sues Warner Bros. over Netflix Revival
Gavin Polone, an original producer on the Gilmore Girls series, is suing Warner Bros.

Today, photos surfaced from the set of Netflix’s TV adaptation of the Lemony Snicket books, A Series of Unfortunate Events showing Neil Patrick Harris looking entirely unfamiliar.

The images of the TV star were presumably captured somewhere between makeup and wardrobe, showing Harris sporting a pointy goatee, a receding hairline, a protruding nose, big bushy brows and a head of wild, styled hair.

Clearly, he is playing the villain of the series, Count Olaf. In the stories, Olaf pursues his distant relatives, Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire, a trio of orphans. Naturally the results are humorous, if not slightly macabre.
