NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s an award show that will be legend…wait for it…dary.

Or at least that’s what Neil Patrick Harris promises.  The ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star will be returning to host the 2013 Tony Awards .

As he did in 2012, Harris will also act as a producer, along with executive producers Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss of White Cherry Entertainment.

Of course, the Emmy Award winner excitingly announced his returning role at the awards with a joke.

“[The show will] be more impressive than ever – if my math is correct, it will be 267 times bigger than last year,” said Harris. “Oh, wait. No, that can’t…hold on…carry the one…I’m awful at math. But rest assured, the show will rock!”

The 67th Annual Tony Awards will be broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, June 9 at 8:00 p.m. on CBS.
