Neil Patrick Harris to Host Game Show The Cube For CBS

Would You Watch Neil Patrick Harris Host a Game Show?

Between posing as a womanizer on How I Met Your Mother, emceeing and dancing on award shows, sitting in the judge's seat on American Idol, and cooking up evil as Dr. Horrible, Neil Patrick Harris is a man who wears many hats, and now he's adding yet another title to his roster — the actor has reportedly signed on for his own CBS game show!

Harris is set to host a pilot of the US version of The Cube, a British series where contestants attempt various tasks inside — you guessed it — a cube. The twist: the chamber is designed to induce stress on its victims. In addition to onscreen duties, Harris will also serve as an executive producer.

While he may not be your typical game show persona — older guys, comedians, TV talk show icons (looking at you, Reege) — and the hosts aren't always at the top of the Hollywood food chain, I'm just excited to watch Harris use his witticism to interact with frazzled, hyped-up regular folks. You know that would make for some fun banter. Fingers crossed that the network picks it up!

This is the best game-show news I've read in a long time. As a game-show fan, I 'm usually left unimpressed by most new offerings, on either side of the Atlantic. I'm usually a Q&A lover, not a reality- or stunt-based game aficionado - but watching The Cube left me exhausted. The production values are amazing, and the Matrix-style "bullet-time" editing actually had me yelling, in the dark, at my computer screen! The Cube's concept may be Beat The Clock redux, but the presentation makes it compelling and addictive. You just can't stop watching until the episode is done - and you immediately crave more, to the point where I downloaded the entire first British season after sampling the initial episode. Since then, I've been watching news on a US version like a hawk. It's been a rollercoaster ride, but things finally seem to have gelled in the best way possible. CBS will have a big summer hit on their hands with this one. Shrewd move on the part of NPH.
