Neil Patrick Harris to Sing on Animated Batman Series

Neil Patrick Harris is lending his singing talents to a special musical episode of Cartoon Network's animated series Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

Dr. Horrible will sing on an episode of Batman entitled "Mayhem of the Music Meister," airing Friday, Oct. 23. Harris will play the role of the villainous Music Meister. Catch the digital release of the episode's soundtrack, available the following day (Oct. 24).

Harris hosted the 61st Annual Primetime Emmys on Sept. 20. He's also in his fifth season of CBS's How I Met Your Mother and is currently filming Beastly, a remake of the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast with Vanessa Hudgens, due out next summer.

Members of the cast of Batman screened "Mayhem of the Music Meister" at last summer's Comic-Con 2009 in San Diego, where it received a standing ovation from the audience.
