Unlike producers for the Academy Awards who chose a risky, yet funny option in Seth MacFarlane as host, the producers for the Tony Awards are sticking with someone they’re comfortable with. Actor Neil Patrick Harris will be the host of the 2013 Tony Awards, his fourth time hosting the show.
Harris, who stars in the long running CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother," can make a career out of hosting the Tony's if he keeps this up. Harris previously hosted the show in 2009, 2010, and 2012. Harris has garnered praise in previous years for his hosting performances, as he often shows off his acting, dancing, and singing skills on stage.
This year's Tony Awards will be moving from the Beacon Theater to Radio City Music Hall. The show will air on CBS, June 9 at 8pm.
