Neil Patrick Harris to Host Tony Awards

Posted by & filed under SFW, The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

Neil Patrick Harris has signed on to host the 66th annual Tony Awards. Harris hosted the Tonys in 2009 and 2011, so he’s a pro; this year, he’ll also co-produce with Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of this year’s Tony Awards,” Harris said. “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 five!”

Many may solely know Neil Patrick Harris from his roles on “How I Met Your Mother,” “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” and “Doogie Howser, M.D.,” but he’s actually a theater veteran. He acted in “Assassins,” “Cabaret” and Proof” on Broadway; most recently, he was in the New York Philharmonic concert version of “Company.”

The Tony Awards air on Sunday, June 10 on CBS. Do you plan to tune in?
