Perhaps Neil Patrick Harris wants to see if he can get a second Emmy for his "Tony" hosting duties.
The “How I Met Your Mother” star is set to return to the Tony Awards stage as host of the awards show on June 12. According to the Los Angeles Times, Harris did such a solid job hosting in 2009, he also nabbed the primetime Emmys gig that same year.
Harris said in a statement that he’s “honored” and “stoked” to be back.
"It should be a great show - we've got a fantastic mix of live performances, a few secret surprises, and since they're closed for retooling, we're using all the rigging equipment from Spider-Man,” Harris joked. “What could possibly go wrong?"
We suppose we’ll find out when the Tony Awards airs on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on June 12.
