Neil Patrick Harris

Although Harris may be best known to many for his TV roles (Doogie Howser, MD and How I Met Your Mother), he’s no stranger to Broadway, starring in Proof in 2002, taking a turn as the Emcee in Cabaret in 2003 and tackling the dual role of The Balladeer/Lee Harvey Oswald in the Roundabout Theater Company’s revival of Stephen Sondheim‘s Assassins.

He’s no stranger to the Tony Awards telecast either, having appeared as a performer in 2004 and a presenter in 2006 and 2007.

While you’re waiting for the real Tony Awards to be announced, you can see how your views line up with those of other theatergoers by casting your votes on The New York Times’ interactive Tony Awards ballot.
