Neil Patrick Harris Joins Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West

Neil Patrick Harris speaks at the 20th Annual Race To Erase MS Gala "Love To Erase MS" at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on May 3, 2013 in Century City, California.

It was announced today that Seth MacFarlane's comedy western, A Million Ways to Die in the West, will be released on May 30, 2014. In that announcement was the news that Neil Patrick Harris will be joining a cast that already included MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, and Giovanni Ribisi. Harris, MacFarlane, Seyfried, Silverman: This movie is going to have all the musical numbers. Sure, the reported plot is something about a coward whose wife leaves him because he chickened out of a gunfight, but maybe that's all a front for a really fun movie adaptation of Oklahoma. Oklahoma's the one with a talking teddy bear, right?
