Neil Patrick Harris is the latest addition to Seth MacFarlane's Western comedy, A Million Ways To Die In The West.

The How I Met Your Mother funnyman has signed on to the star-studded ensemble movie, which already includes Charlize Theron and Liam Neeson among the cast, reported Collider.

Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman and Giovanni Ribisi also have roles in the film, which marks Seth's second time in the director's chair.

Seth, who co-wrote the script with his Ted writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, will direct, produce and star as a cowardly sheep farmer whose girlfriend (Amanda) leaves him for another man.

He turns to a "mysterious and beautiful" married stranger - played by Charlize - to help him find his courage, and has to put his new-found bravery to the test when her outlaw husband (Liam) rides back into town seeking revenge.

A Million Ways To Die In The West is set for release in May 2014.

Neil, who is best known for playing womaniser Barney Stinson in the US sitcom and his cameo roles in the Harold And Kumar comedies, will next be seen in The Smurfs 2.

It's sometimes difficult for a retiring person like you to showcase your talent. You are tired of being eclipsed by pushy rivals. By showing your work to the right people, you can finally gain the fame and acclaim you deserve. Fortunately, an influential friend, neighbour or colleague can set up an interview or introduction. An important executive or critic will be impressed by your efforts. If you're offered an unpaid position as an intern or apprentice, take it. This will lead to professional opportunities you couldn't find through other channels.More
