Posted Tuesday May 10, 2011 3:42 PM GMT

Proving he has what it takes in years past, Neil Patrick Harris will return as host of the 65th annual Tony Awards.

The “How I Met Your Mother” star is set to lead the awards show, which honors the best in theater and will air live on June 12th on CBS.

“I’m honored and stoked to have been asked to host the 2011 Tony Awards,” said Harris in a statement.

“It should be a great show – we’ve got a fantastic mix of live performances, a few secret surprises and since they’re closed for retooling, we’re using all the rigging equipment from ‘Spider-Man.’ What could possibly go wrong?”
