A Series of Unfortunate Events Trailer: Say Hello to Neil Patrick Harris’s Creepy Count Olaf

By

Neil Patrick Harris looked nearly unrecognizable when photos first surfaced of him in costume as Count Olaf for Netflix's upcoming A Series of Unfortunate Events adaptation, and the first trailer is here to confirm that, yup, he's indeed embracing that gangling, soul-patch-rocking role quite well. What, you expected the notoriously thieving and murderous guardian to not give the Baudelaire orphans one hell of a battle for their dead parents' enormous fortune? You haven't the faintest idea what they're going up against. The series drops on January 13. Watch the trailer above — if you dare — with a teaser below.
