When you’ve found the perfect host, you don’t let him go.
It hasn’t quite happened for the Emmys, and now it’s an ongoing soap opera for the Oscars, to say the least. The Tonys, though, have their guy, and it couldn’t be a better fit. Neil Patrick Harris will host the 67th edition of the Broadway awards, his fourth time with the gig, and he really just exudes fun and charm, even in pre-approved press release quotes.
“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,” he said, via CBS. “Oh, wait. No, that can’t… hold on… carry the one… I’m awful at math. But rest assured, the show will rock!”
This is his third year in a row manning the stage, and to get excited for June 9, here are some of his most delightful numbers from the past:
- Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korea's leader, was killed with a chemical weapon last week at an airport in Malaysia.
- Caitlyn Jenner told President Trump his administration's rollback of protections for transgender kids was a "disaster" 😳
- Uber's CEO met with more than 100 female engineers on Thursday to discuss sexism and harassment allegations at the company.
- Beyoncé is backing out of Coachella under doctors' advice. But she plans to headline the festival again in 2018 😭🐝
