neil patrick harris tony awards host Neil Patrick Harris back as Tony Awards host for 2013Rejoice, Broadway fans! Neil Patrick Harris is returning to host the 2013 Tony Awards. It will be the “How I Met Your Mother” actor and Broadway vet’s fourth time hosting the annual awards. This year, as in 2012, Harris will also act as a producer.

“I’m very excited to be back hosting the Tony Awards at the legendary
Radio City Music Hall. It’ll be more impressive than ever — if my math is
correct, it will be 267 times bigger than last year,” says Harris. “Oh, wait.  No, that can’t … hold on … carry the one … I’m awful
at math. But rest assured, the show will rock!”

We have no doubt. NPH has been a fantastic host for the annual awards show that honors the best of the Great White Way.

The 67th annual Tony Awards air live from Radio City Music Hall Sunday, June 9 at 8 p.m. ET/delayed PT on CBS.
