Neil Patrick Harris to host the Tony Awards

Neil Patrick HarrisLadies and gentlemen alike know that Neil Patrick Harris has got it all: Perfect comedic timing, a hit show, old-fashioned song-and-dance skills, a ridiculously diverse audience, and a body built for suits. With such overwhelming levels of snazzy, is anyone surprised that NPH has been asked to host the 63rd Annual Tony Awards?

Some of the theater-literate out there may know that NPH has done his fair share of musicals onstage, from RENT to Sweeney Todd to Cabaret. Most of you are probably most aware of his Joss Whedon project, Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog, which provided us with endless joy (and by "endless", I mean "three installments' worth"). Regardless, NPH has the knowledge, the background and the charisma to pull this off.

I was trying to think of any areas in which I have doubts, to prevent this post from becoming a full-on "Yay NPH!" lovefest, but I really can't. This means my expectations are extra-high though, so NPH and the gang won't need to do very much to let me down. Don't break my heart the way the Seagull snub did!

The ceremony airs on CBS on June 7, 8 p.m.
