Neil Patrick Harris will host the Tony Awards this year, producers of the show announced Tuesday.

This will be the How I Met Your Mother star's third gig emceeing the show, having hosted in 2009 and 2011.

"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!"
