LOS ANGELES, May 29 (UPI) -- Neil Patrick Harris and Rachael Ray will be the first celebrity contestants to play "Million Dollar Password" when the U.S. game show debuts, CBS said.

The new version of the classic game show is to premiere Sunday with TV personality Regis Philbin as host.

Harris can be seen on the sit-com "How I Met Your Mother," while Ray is the host of "The Rachael Ray Show."

Contestants on "Password" team up with celebrities and have the potential to win up to $1 million by taking turns as the clue-giver and clue-receiver, then trying to determine that round's password. If the player and the celebrity can work together to successfully give and receive clues in multiple rounds, the contestant may be able to guess the $1 million password and win the cash that goes along with it, CBS said.

Comedian Rosie O'Donnell and skateboarding sensation Tony Hawk are scheduled to play in the June 8 episode of the show.
