In casting news that can only be described as "legendary," Neil Patrick Harris is close to signing on for a guest-starring gig on Glee.
Reliable sources, such as Entertainment Weekly and E! News, confirm the star will likely appear in an upcoming episode directed by Joss Whedon, which will reunite the pair responsible for Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.
"The plan is for Neil's acting, singing and dancing talents to all be used," said a Glee insider.
