Neil Patrick Harris puts his talent in a box. Well, a cube.

Nph 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.
