Harris TonysLooks like Neil Patrick Harris wants to catch Angela Lansbury in his quest to be the host with the most. CBS confirms that Broadway and Television star Neil Patrick Harris will host the 67th Annual Tony Awards on June 9 at Radio City Music Hall. This will be Harris’ fourth hosting gig vs. Lansbury’s total of 5.

Harris previously hosted the 63rd, 65th and 66th Annual Tony Awards. Additionally, Harris will also co-produce the awards show along with executive producers Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss of White Cherry Entertainment.

Harris said, “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, Oh, wait. No, that can’t… hold on… carry the one… I’m awful at math. But rest assured, the show will rock!”

On Broadway, Harris has appeared in AssassinsProof and Cabaret. He is the winner of two 2010 Emmy Awards and was nominated for his work on the CBS series “How I Met Your Mother.”

Now who do you think  will be given writing duties for the opening and closing songs of the show? Any predictions?
