The 67th annual Tony Awards have called on a familiar face to host this year's ceremony.

It's official: How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris will serve as the master of ceremonies for a fourth time on Sunday, June 9, with the event set for New York's Radio City Music Hall at 8 p.m. CBS will air the show live on the East Coast with a tape delay broadcast set for the West Coast.

Harris most recently hosted the Tonys in 2012, when he also served as a producer of the show. He will continue to produce this year's event alongside executive producers Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss of White Cherry Entertainment.

"I'm very excited to be back hosting the Tony Awards at the legendary Radio City Music Hall. It'll be more impressive than ever -- if my math is correct, it will be 267 times bigger than last year," Harris said in a statement. "Oh, wait. No, that can't ... hold on ... carry the one ... I'm awful at math. But rest assured, the show will rock!"

Nominations were announced on April 30. They can be viewed in full at the Tony Awards website.
