Neil Patrick Harris has a new hat to go with that suit.

The How I Met Your Mother standout has signed on to direct his first feature film, an indie romantic comedy called Aaron and Sarah, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

One might think that the expectant dad might want to clear his schedule a bit, but Harris can apparently do it all.

The multifaceted star of stage and screen recently helmed a production of Rent at the Hollywood Bowl and picked up Emmys for hosting the Tonys and guest-starring on Glee. He's also in the upcoming fractured fairytale Beastly and will return as a skewed version of himself in the next Harold and Kumar movie.

Emma Roberts and The Kids Are All Right's Josh Hutcherson are currently attached to play the couple in question in Aaron and Sarah.
