The Emmy Award-winning star of the sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" will serve as emcee for Broadway's biggest night June 9 at Radio City Music Hall.

"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."

"Neil is a multi-talented performer whose showmanship, wit and energy command the stage of live events," said Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment. "He is a master of ceremony who truly loves celebrating the performing arts with the highest level of entertainment, and it's quite obvious to the audience he's having a lot of fun along the way."

"We are thrilled that Neil will be joining us, once again, at Radio City Music Hall to host the 67th annual Tony Awards," Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, and Heather Hitchens, executive director of the American Theatre Wing, said in a joint statement.

"Neil's creativity and passion for Broadway shines through when he is on the stage and off -- and we cannot wait to see what surprises Neil will have up his sleeves."
