The How I Met Your Mother star previously hosted the Tonys in 2009, the same year he hosted the Emmys, and in 2011. Harris is also attached to produce the ceremony.

"I'm thrilled to be part of this year's Tony Awards," Harris said. "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!"

The 66th Annual Tony Awards airs live from the Beacon Theater in New York on June 10.
