In case you haven’t heard, Seth MacFarlane, the man behind Family Guy, American Dad and 2012’s runaway hit, Ted, is directing and starring in A Million Ways to Die in the West. The western-comedy has been gathering one hell of a cast so far. Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman and Giovanni Ribisi have all signed up. As if that wasn’t enough, it has just been announced that Neil Patrick Harris has joined the team. It isn’t yet known what role the How I Met Your Mother star has signed up for.
Here’s the official synopsis:
After a cowardly sheep farmer backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend leaves him for another man. When a mysterious and beautiful woman rides into town, she helps him find his courage and they begin to fall in love. But when her husband, a notorious outlaw, arrives seeking revenge, the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.
MacFarlane has certainly proven that he can do voices and he’s shown that he can hold a crowd as a presenter, but how will he fare as a lead actor?
