Emmy winner actor Neil Patrick Harris is all set to join the cast of The Matrix 4. He will be joining in Keanu Reeves, along with Carrie-Anne Moss, who will be reprising their roles in the film. As well as the villain on Aquaman Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who was tapped as one of the leads last week.
Till yet, plot details of the upcoming film are being kept under the wraps. While it is being rumoured a young Morpheus could appear in the movie, however, the sources close to the film would not confirm Harris’ specific role.
With 27 million followers on Twitter, Harris has a huge fanbase, it is being quoted that he’s certainly going to bring added value to the project.
A Series of Unfortunate Events lost at last night’s Emmys to Sesame Street. I’d say I was bummed, but Catherine O’Hara told me: losing an Emmy to ‘When You Wish Upon A Pickle’ is in many ways, a funnier way to end the story. I like that. #befitting #countolaf @netflix @TheEmmys
