Negotiations are now set in stone, meaning How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris will play the villainous Count Olaf in Netflix's series based off Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events books.

Today I was put in a most unfortunate situation prepping for my next gig.

A Series Of Unfortunate Events tells the story of Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes) and Sunny Baudelaire, three orphaned siblings that fall into the evil clutches of Count Olaf, who only causes more hardship for the poor children as they attempt to solve the mystery surrounding their parents' death.

Also added to the cast as narrator Lemony Snicket is Patrick Warburton, who'll guide the story along.

Production begins this month in Vancouver and is set to hit Netflix in August. Perhaps we can finally figure out what V.F.D. stands for!
