Neil Patrick HarrisNeil Patrick Harris
will officially host the 61st annual Primetime Emmys, airing Sept. 20 on CBS. The news was confirmed yesterday after weeks of speculation, with executive producer Don Mischner saying "Neil is charming, funny, quick on his feet and very likeable." But we knew that already. [Variety]



Steven WeberSteven Weber is in talks to join ABC's 'Happy Town,' a new series about a small town plagued by the Magic Man serial killer. Weber would play the "obsessive" and agonozing John Haplin, whose daughter has been missing for years. Doesn't sound very happy to us. [Hollywood Reporter]
