The triple threat performer did a phenomenal job when he hosted the show two years ago ... so much so, he was asked back.

NPH stated had the following to say about hosting again:

    “I’m honored and stoked to have been asked to host ... It should be a great show — we’ve got a fantastic mix of live performances, a few secret surprises, and since they’re closed for retooling, we’re using all the rigging equipment from Spider-Man. What could possibly go wrong?”

The 65th Tony Awards will be telecast from the Beacon Theatre in New York City on June 13.
