Report: Neil Patrick Harris to Host 2011 Tony Awards
Neil Patrick Harris is the perfect example of a humble host with gumption and charisma for days — or at least enough for a go at round two. Although some of his award show colleagues — James Franco, Ricky Gervais — may never see the light of stage again, Harris has reportedly been tapped to host his second Tony Award broadcast.
According to Deadline.com, the new dad will lend his face and tapping toes to the 65th annual Broadway award show on June 12. But this won”t be Harris” first time at the rodeo — he hosted the show two years ago to rave reviews.
And who was the first congratulate Harris on his gig “Modern Family” star, Jesse Tyler Ferguson tweeted, “Congrats to @ActuallyNPH for returning as host of the 2011 Tony Awards. He was brilliant a few years ago and will be brilliant again.”
We have no doubt about that.
