Neil Patrick Harris returns as host of the Tony Awards

Neil Patrick HarrisHow I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris has been invited to return as host of the Tony Awards next month.

The actor, who has starred in three Broadway productions himself, received an Emmy for his previous stint hosting the awards show back in 2009. Last summer Harris directed a production of “Rent” in Los Angeles.

The Book of Mormon,” an adult-themed musical by “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, received  14 nominations, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical and two nods for Best Leading Actor.

The Scottsboro Boys,” a racially charged musical, received 12 nominations.

The revival of Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes,” received  nine nominations.

A few big names seem to have been overlooked for nominations this year, including Daniel Radcliffe,  starring in the musical “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” Chris Rock in “The Motherf**ker with the Hat,” and Ben Stiller, for his role in the revival of the John Guare play “The House of Blue Leaves.”

The ceremony will be held June 12 in New York’s Beacon Theatre.
