"How I Met Your Mother" star Neil Patrick Harris will host the 67th annual Tony Awards again, a representative for the American Theater Wing announced Thursday.

It will be the actor's fourth time hosting the show, which broadcasts live from New York's Radio City Music Hall in June.

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

His previous Tony hosting duties were in 2009, 2011 and 2012. Harris does not have a Tony of his own, but has appeared in productions of "Cabaret," "Proof" and "Assassins."

The Tony Awards can be seen on CBS on Sunday, June 9.
