Neil Patrick Harris Will Chaperone Gay Prom


Apparently Neil Patrick Harris did a fine job hosting this year’s TV Land Awards, because the freakin’ Tony Awards have asked him to host their show! And he accepted.

On June 7 our favorite currently-employed out ‘mo will be responsible for steering the 63rd annual Broadway awards show through Billy Elliot and Hair and even 9 To 5.

It’s not a blind pick; Harris knows a thing or two about Broadway, given his stints in Cabaret, Assassins, and Proof. (And a little something called Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, which should have been on Broadway.)

    NPH is the ideal host for the Tony Award Show. Articulate, smart, resourceful, witty, you name it! The mere mention of him hosting will surely result in the largest viewership ever.
    Make us proud, Neil!

    I love Neil, but no one watches the Tony awards outside of queens and closet cases. He is not gonna oversee a spike in ratings.

    Personally, i’d rather see him in a show, than host one. I loooooved him in Cabaret.
