Neil Patrick Harris is bringing British television to the U.S. The TV actor is in talks to host and produce the American version of U.K. game show "The Cube."

The program, which places contestants in a small plastic cube to induce stress while they perform physical tasks, has become a smash hit in Britain.

And the "How I Met Your Mother" star is traveling to London later this year to record a pilot for an adaptation for CBS, reports TheWrap.com.

In addition to hosting, Harris will also serve as executive producer.

"The Cube" is the latest hosting gig for Harris, who has already served as the master of ceremonies for the Emmys, the Tony Awards and the TV Land Awards.
