Perhaps next time, Neil Patrick Harris will be accepting a Tony Award instead of hosting the ceremony.
The multitalented actor, who once again won raves for his handling of Broadway's biggest celebration, is scheduled to take a turn on the Great White Way himself in a revival of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." Harris, 40, will star in the musical about an East German transgender singer and her rock band.
"I am simultaneously ecstatic and terrified to be stepping into Hedwig's heels. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime role and I can't wait to begin the journey," said Harris in a press release.
"Hedwig and the Angry Inch," by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask, began as an off-off-Broadway show and moved to the Jane Street Theatre in 1998, where it ran for more than two years and won both Obie and Outer Critics Circle awards. The show was turned into a 2001 film directed by and starring Mitchell. This is the first time it will play on Broadway.
Harris is no stranger to the stage himself, having appeared in such Broadway productions as "Assassins," "Proof" and "Cabaret," but he's probably best-known to audiences for his TV roles, including playing the title character in "Doogie Houser, M.D." and Barney in "How I Met Your Mother."
Trask has no doubts that Harris is up to the be-wigged part.
"It’s like you’re putting together a fantasy rock band and Paul McCartney agrees to play bass," he said.
The show is scheduled to premiere next spring.

I consider myself straight, but I would be willing to take Neil Patrick Harris' "inches" into any one of my bodily orifices. That is one hot gay man.
Sure, Lil' Wayne fan, someone makes one legitimate, valid point you don't agree with, so they MUST be gay. Typical. You're a bigot.
You've got to admit that NPH has the nice, aryan good looks that only someone from the master race could have.
Now you're a Nazi too... racist.
are you familiar with the saying about the "pot calling the kettle black?"
Talking to yourself is the first sign of insanity.
Headed out to the front yard to take a large steaming poop.
Oh is that your house with human feces all over the front yard? It's a lovely house!
NPH! Pimpest gay guy in the world.
