If there's one thing we've learned about the Tony Awards, it's that they like recycling hosts!
After recruiting Neil Patrick Harris to host the show over the last three years, the Tonys are returning to an old favorite for their 68th ceremony: Hugh Jackman!
This will be the Australian's fourth time hosting Broadway's biggest night, and the 45-year-old couldn't wait to share the news, posting this video to his Instagram account:
The Golden Globe-winning actor previously hosted in '03, '04 and '05 and also tried his hand at hosting the Oscars in 2009. So he's definitely got the experience!
"We are thrilled that Hugh will be joining us, once again, at Radio City Music Hall to host ‘The 68th Annual Tony Awards,’" said Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League and Heather Hitchens, Executive Director of the American Theatre Wing.
“Hugh is an extraordinary talent and loyal supporter of the Broadway community – whether he is on-stage or in the audience - and we are honored to have him back as host.”
Jackman won a Tony Award in 2004 for Best Leading Actor in a Musical for his role in "The Boy from Oz." He was also awarded the Special Tony in 2012 for extraordinary contribution to the theatre community.
The Tony Awards will be broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, June 8th on CBS.
