Hugh Jackman to Neil Patrick Harris: Have Fun Hosting!
Hugh Jackman is all smiles as he arrives at LAX airport with his son Oscar, 9, in Los Angeles on Friday (June 5).
The 40-year-old Aussie actor is a three-time host of the Tony Awards and most recently hosted the Oscars, so it’s no wonder that this year’s host for the Tonys reached out to him.
“I saw [Hugh] three or four days ago, and he couldn’t have been lovelier,” Neil told People. “I was asking him how to maintain the audience at Radio City [Music Hall]‘s attention and [Hugh] had some good tips for me. He seemed very confident and said, ‘Make sure you don’t forget to have a lot of fun.’”
The Tony Awards will air LIVE @ 8PM ET/PT on Sunday, June 7 on CBS.
