    Here's The Cast For Netflix's "A Series Of Unfortunate Events"

    Even Esmé Gigi Geniveve Squalor would agree that these talented performers are all very "in."

    Last November, it was revealed that Netflix would be debuting an all-new live-action adaptation of the A Series Of Unfortunate Events books, set to premiere sometime in 2016.

    Excitement for the forthcoming series has been building ever since. At one point, there was a ridiculously well done fan-made trailer that sent lovers of the series into a tizzy. Netflix has since denounced any attachment to the trailer.

    Hynes is relatively unknown as far as acting on television goes, however, he's pictured above as Franzl in Intermezzo, which was performed at Garsinton Opera in England last year.

    Neil Patrick Harris will be filling the role of Count Olaf, the man who serves as the caretaker of the orphaned Baudelaire children.
