Producers for the Tony Awards announced today that the one and only Neil Patrick Harris will take on hosting duties for this year’s show.   It will be the “How I Met Your Mother” star’s third time running the night, his first two being back in 2009 and 2011.

Harris said in a statement,

“I’m 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 five!”

Now, the only question to me is will Hugh Jackman show up for some competition…?
