Neil Patrick Harris to host 2011 Tony Awards
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.

You no as well as i do the only reason he got this gig is because he is gay if he was straight he would be keeping his beau company
He stole Harold & Kumar's car while "trippin' balls" on X, but he did bring it back and pay for dinner: pretty cool.
I bet he'll be faaaaaaaaaaaabulous!
Rusty likes them weeeeeiners too. He just like them with dirt and rust on em !
congratulations dude from harold n kumar..
This pole smoker had got to go away!!!!!!!!
You're an idiot. Step up to the 21st century.
Awww, poor Rusty. Guess the pole smoker didn't like what I said before. Too bad freedom of speech isn't allowed on CNN blogs.
But apparently CNN allows idiots like you to post. Now, after looking at your alias, why would you hate yourself?
Ouch! I'm truely hurt by that comment. I can't believe a pole smoker could be so rude. I though only people intolerant of the alternative lifestyle would be so rude.
HA HA! DISREGARD THAT I SMOKE POLES.
MMMmmmm...I bet he can handle multiple weenees at once.
This guy is another strange sick icon developed my sick liberal America!
My comment, UGHH, no comment.
Isnt he and Channing Tatum engaged?
I bet he smooches goobers behind strip mall dumpsters.
