Neil Patrick Harris to Host 2012 Tony Awards

Neil Patrick Harris will once again preside over Broadway’s biggest night as the host of this year’s Tony Awards.

CBS announced early Tuesday that the How I Met Your Mother thesp will emcee the 66th annual ceremony on June 10. This marks Harris’ third time host the Tonys, following stints in 2009 and 2011.

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

    They should just get him to host the Oscars. But then again, Oscar hosts suck either way.
