Hugh Jackman to Host Tony Awards: VIDEO


Yesterday afternoon, Hugh Jackman announced that he would be announcing the Tony Awards on June 8 at Radio City Music Hall.

Last year's host, Neil Patrick Harris, who is busy preparing for the leading role in the revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, took the news in stride, despite some taunting from Jackman.

Tweeted NPH: "I'm so proud of @RealHughJackman for hosting this year's Tony Awards and for calling me an hour ago to say, 'Suck it!'"
