It seems like the Tony Awards can't stave off Hugh Jackman! The X-Men: Days of Future Past star will honor the best of Broadway as the host the 68th Annual Tony Awards, the American Theatre Wing announces.
This will be the 45-year-old's fourth time as the Tonys' master of ceremonies — he hosted in 2004 (winning an Emmy for his job), 2005, and 2006.
Hugh is also no stranger to being honored by the prestigious award ceremony — having won the 2004 Best Leading Actor in a Musical Tony for his role in The Boy From Oz. He also received the 2012 Special Tony Award for all his work treading the boards.
"Hugh is an extraordinary talent and loyal supporter of the Broadway community, whether he is on-stage or in the audience" raves Broadway League executive director Charlotte St. Martin. "And we are honored to have him back as host."
Adds CBS Entertainment vice president Jack Sussman: "He's the ultimate triple threat — actor, singer, dancer — he does it all, second to none. He is a consummate entertainer and the one you ultimately want out there hosting your live television event."
You can catch Hugh's latest go-round as host when the Tonys air on CBS at 8 p.m. ET on June 8, 2014, broadcast live from New York City's Radio City Music Hall.
We'll be there for curtain-up!
