LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Emmy Award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris, who stars on CBS’ hit comedy “How I Met Your Mother”, will host the 67th Annual Tony Awards.
This will be Harris’ fourth time hosting the Tonys.
“I’m very excited to be back hosting the Tony Awards at the legendary Radio City Music Hall. It’ll be more impressive than ever—if my math is correct, it will be 267 times bigger than last year,” Harris said in a statement. “Oh, wait. No, that can’t… hold on… carry the one… I’m awful at math. But rest assured, the show will rock!”
The show, which will take place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, airs June 9 at 8 p.m. on CBS2.
“Neil is a multi-talented performer whose showmanship, wit and energy command the stage of live events,” President of CBS Entertainment Nina Tassler said in a statement. “He is a master of ceremony who truly loves celebrating the performing arts with the highest level of entertainment, and it’s quite obvious to the audience he’s having a lot of fun along the way.”
