Neil Patrick Harris to Gleam The Cube?
By Noah Michelson
Is there anything that Neil Patrick Harris can't -- or won't -- do? Television star, Broadway actor, film hunk, Emmy host, musical Internet web series leading man, guest star on American Idol and Top Chef and now -- game show host?
Rumor has it that CBS is looking to hire the Renaissance man -- and former Out cover boy -- to helm a new British import called The Cube (watch an episode of the original UK series above). Already a major hit overseas, the show places contestants inside a small, stress-inducing box where they must complete routine tasks to win money. NBC has a similar show, Minute to Win It, debuting in March and Fox was initially interested in The Cube last winter, but passed, allowing CBS to swoop in and scoop up the game show. So far CBS has been mum on when The Cube would premiere and has not confirmed Harris as the host of the show, but when and if they do, you'll be the first to hear about.
