Neil Patrick Harris talks Tonys Awards on 'The Colbert Report.'

With his Tony Awards hosting gig just a few days away, Broadway vet and all around good guy Neil Patrick Harris dropped by The Colbert Report on June 6 to chat about Broadway's biggest night. Before the How I Met Your Mother star could even discuss his plans for the night, host Stephen Colbert (who Harris co-starred with in a Company concert last year) immediately started to crack jokes at the actor’s expense. “I find you a threat,” Colbert said. “First of all you are the classic triple threat. You are an actor/singer/dancer, but you are also the biggest threat of all. You’re a gay person that I like.” Click below to watch Harris’ discuss why Broadway's talented performers can compete with Olympic athletes and analyze the top Tony races. Be sure to catch Harris live at the Tonys on CBS June 10.
