"I'm thrilled to be a part of this year's Tony Awards," the theater vet said in a statement excerpted by TheWrap.com. "Not only will I be shining a spotlight on the best that Broadway has to offer, but hopefully I'll score some free house seats to a show—or five!"

We hope NPH will delight us again with a musical number (or five) at this year's Tony Awards, which air June 10 on CBS.
