Neil Patrick Harris Will Host the 2011 Tonys

Neil Patrick Harris is a fantastic awards show host. Just ask the TV Land Awards, the Spike Video Game Awards, and the 2009 Tony Awards — the guy sure has some serious range. Now, he’s been asked to the Tonys this year and provide some of his infectious awesomeness to that stage.

As great as he is, I’m not sure that’s the only reason CBS chose the actor as their host. Harris is also known as Barney Stinson to fans of CBS’ How I Met Your Mother, which, if ratings are any indication, include a huge chunk of the country. Even so, we know he’s going to give us a good show. Here’s a look at what he gave us a few years ago in addition to his biting Broadway digs.
