With things continuing to take shape for a fourth Matrix movie, now comes word on a new addition for the film.

Courtesy of Variety, Neil Patrick Harris has joined the movie in a hush-hush role. Harris, of course, is best known for his awards-filled turn as Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother, in addition to the likes of A Series of Unfortunate Events, Gone Girl and Starship Troopers.

Harris joins a Matrix movie that sees the returns of Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, and only last week added Aquaman’s Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. The original trilogy’s Lana Wachowski is back to direct what’s currently being titled simply The Matrix 4.
