If you're a reader, your childhood was probably filled with Lemony Snicket's 'A Series of Unfortunate Events'.

And now it's going to be translated into an equally eccentric series on Netflix

If you saw the 2004 movie, it's hard to forget Jim Carrey's amazing and entertaining performance as Count Olaf.

And now, unhappily for the Baudelaires, Netflix has found just the man to do it on the TV show... 

How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris will grow out his unibrow and step into Olaf's chunky, tattoo-covering boots when the series begins shooting. Judging by the above tweet, he's not wasting any time in getting into character!
