Neil Patrick Harris To Host Tony Awards Again

3 April 2012 8:07 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Not sure how many Broadway fans will get the hockey reference, but Neil Patrick Harris has made it a hat trick and agreed to host the upcoming Tony Awards for the third time in four years. Nph is good at it, and it is nice that Broadway has stability on the hosting front. I’m already wondering what will happen late this year when AMPAS starts looking around again for an Oscar host. Billy Crystal certainly stopped the bleeding by stepping in after Eddie Murphy dropped out along with producer Brett Ratner, but Crystal’s usual schtick felt dated to me. Emmy Award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris, star of the CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother, returns to host The 66Th Annual Tony® Awards, to be broadcast live from The Beacon Theater in New York, Sunday, June 10 (8:00-11:00 Pm, live Et; delayed Pt) on the CBS Television Network. »
