Hugh Jackman will return to take over hosting duties for the Tonys this year, taking over for Neil Patrick Harris, who is likely busy starring in John Cameron Mitchell's Hedwig and the Angry Inch Broadway revival (for which he is eligible for nomination). No matter: Jackman has been saving up those exuberant screams and enthusiastic arms for a few years now. No doubt you'll see plenty of both when he emcees the June 8 show.
