Neil Patrick Harris To Host Tony Awards

Neil Patrick Harris will host the 2009 Tony Awards on Sunday, June 7, live from NYC’s Radio City Music Hall.

“The discipline of live theatre — doing the same perfect thing night after night, eight times a week — never ceases to amaze me,” the 35-year-old How I Met Your Mother star said in a press release. “I’m truly honored to have been chosen as the Master of Ceremonies for this year’s Tony Awards, and I hope to help provide a first-class evening for all.”

The Tonys will air live @ 8-11PM ET/PT on CBS.

Last week, NPH told me that he plans to go back to Broadway someday. “I would love to [move back to NYC] when HIMYM is done,” NPH told “I think we’ll move back to the east coast. The pulse of the city is so strong, the heartbeat here, I think it’s a better place to live day to day. Definitely theater. [My partner David Burtka is a big theater actor too, so he misses it as well.”

I guess the red flag went up for the writers on, Doogie Hauser when NPH kept suggesting an episode where he visits a local high school to give the varsity football teams their physicals. You can almost see, NPH practicing his line, while cupping imaginary junk, “turn your head and cough, please.”

And look! he has the quintessential “gay” forehead, a super-pronounced feature found on many gay men. If you don’t believe me, watch the next showing of mens’ figure skating and you’ll see what I mean.
