Neil Patrick Harris’ Tony Awards Promos: Part Broadway, Part Barney


If there’s one thing Neil Patrick Harris is great at, it’s everything. But, he’s got a particular knack for hosting awards shows. 

From dazzling the er, laid back, White Castle fans over at Spike’s Video Game Awards, to entertaining our moms while they watch the TV Land Awards, to enlighting us all as the host of the Emmys. NPH has rightfully earned his unofficial title as the Host With The Most. In fact, he’s done such a wonderful job that he’s already looping back around to host the Tony Awards yet again. And if we weren’t already sold, the Tonys released this promo reel of Harris delivering his devilishly handsome mix of Broadway pizzazz and How I Met Your Mother’s signature Barney Stintson swagger. (It’s okay. I’ll give you a moment to set your DVR now.)
And let us all just hope we never have to live in a world where NPH isn’t hosting evenings surrounding the distribution of tiny golden statues. 
The Tony Awards air June 10 on CBS.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
