Neil Patrick Harris puts his talent in a box. Well, a cube.
Weren't we just saying that Neil Patrick Harris could replace Simon Cowell next year on "American Idol"? Well, it turns out another TV competition has gotten to stylish NPH already: He'll be shooting a CBS pilot soon for "Minute to Win It," the U.S. version of the British show "The Cube."
The show, which puts contestants into a big ol' box with tasks to perform and nine lives to lose, sounds pretty intense.
Phillip Schofield hosts the British incarnation of the deceptively simple show -- which has the Ministry totally stressed after watching the video clip embedded below. Harris had those gigs hosting the Emmys and the Tonys; Schofield hosted the 2007 Royal Variety Performance for the queen.
