Netflix’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events Cast

Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events based on the same novel will make its appearance in 2017. Neil Patrick Harris – the American actor, producer, singer, comedian, magician and television host best known for his role as Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother – will play the character of Count Olaf. Neil Patrick Harris has been rightly chosen for the role and he is expected to deliver full justice for the character of Count Olaf. In order to become the villain that Count Olaf’s character demands, Harris has to go through two hours of prosthetics. Harris is required to put on disguises in order to get closer to the children to collect their inheritance. Acting in several disguises for the role of Olaf will be a challenge for Harris.

Harris has expressed that he feels drawn to the character of Count Olaf and found it really amazing (in a sarcastic way) and that he had a lot of fun playing the character of the famous villain. The other cast for the series includes Malina Weissman as Violet and Patrick Warburton as the narrator. Aasif Mandvi, Alfre Woodard, and Louis Hyness Klaus are also part of the cast.
