His third time as Tonys host is sure to be charming, because let's be honest - is there ever a time when Neil Patrick Harris isn't?
The "How I Met Your Mother" actor has signed on to host the Tony Awards once again, and will lead fans through the 66th ceremony on Sunday, June 10.
Harris previously served as host for the 2009 and 2011 Tonys, and, as he did last year, he'll also produce the 2012 awards show.
He'll be accompanied by executive producers Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss, who won an Emmy along with host Harris for 2009's 63rd Tony Awards.
Harris said in a statement that he's "thrilled to be a part of this year's Tony Awards...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 5."
The 66th Tony Awards will air live from New York City's Beacon Theatre on CBS Sunday, June 10 at 8 p.m. ET.
