He did an incredible job as host last year, so hopefully this year will be a repeat performance for Harris.
Neil Patrick Harris to Host Tonys Again
by Ann Oldenburg, USA TODAY
NPH is back!
“How I Met Your Mother” star Neil Patrick Harris will return as host of the 2012 Tony Awards on June 10, live from the Beacon Theatre in New York City. This will be the third time that Harris has presided over the festivities.
As he did in 2011, Harris also will act as a producer, along with executive producers Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss of White Cherry Entertainment on the “66th Annual Tony Awards.”
The show will air live on CBS from 8:00–11:00 p.m. (ET/PT tape delay).
Said Harris in the release, “Not only will I be shining a spotlight on the best that Broadway has to offer, but hopefully I’ll score some free house seats to a show or 5.”
I had a feeling this might happen. I’m very happy. Hopefully he lives up to the hype.
