Actor Neil Patrick Harris has a starring role in Hasbro's US TV ad for new game, Scrabble Catch Phrase.

The star of sitcom How I Met Your Mother is featured in the game's TV ad campaign, which kicked off this week in the US.

Along with the commerical, Harris (pictured) will help kick off Hasbro Game Night. The first ad shows the actor 'crashing' a gathering to liven up the action with the Scrabble Catch Phrase game, turning the get together into a Game Night.

The Game Night campaign will include two additional ads this year, featuring Yahtzee and Jenga, although these will not include Harris.

"We are thrilled to be working with Neil Patrick Harris for the launch of Scrabble Catch Phrase," said Eric Nyman, SVP and global brand leader, Hasbro Gaming. "His genuine love of games makes him the perfect fit to help us celebrate the way our games bring people together on Game Night."

Harris added: "It's no secret I love games, and Catch Phrase has always been one of my favourites."
