Neil Patrick Harris to Host Tony Awards Again

Andrew H. Walker/WireImage for Tony Awards Productions(LOS ANGELES) -- Neil Patrick Harris has been tapped to host next month's 67th annual Tony Awards, according to The Hollywood Reporter.  It will be the fourth time the How I Met Your Mother star hosts the awards dedicated to the Great White Way.

"I'm very excited to be back hosting the Tony Awards at the legendary Radio City Music Hall.  It'll be more impressive than ever -- if my math is correct, it will be 267 times bigger than last year," Harris said in a statement.  "Oh, wait.  No, that can't...hold on...carry the one...I'm awful at math.  But rest assured, the show will rock!"

The nominations were announced earlier this year, with Kinky Boots netting the most nods.

Other Broadway productions to rack up nominations include Matilda the Musical with 12 nods, and the revival of Pippin.  The story about the life of a fictitious young prince and his father Charlemagne received 10 nominations.  The original 1972 Broadway production scored 11 Tony nominations and won four.

Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella received nine nods, while Golden Boy, a story about a young Harlem man who turns to prizefighting to escape the ghetto, nabbed eight.  You can see the complete list of nominees HERE.

The Tony Awards ceremony will air live on CBS Sunday, June 9, at 8 p.m. Eastern time.
