Well, well, well… how grey does this look?!
Our first look at Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf in Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is so very, very good. Yes, it’s very similar to Jim Carrey’s take on it but this, to us at least, is just a testament to how perfect Carrey was in the role.
If you pay attention and are a fan of the books, there’s a lot of loving little nods in there too.
We’re excited… the first binge watch of 2017? Looks likely…
