0 comments

Wolverine Hugh Jackman took to Instagram yesterday to announce he will host the 68th Annual Tony Awards on June 8. It's all going down live from New York at Radio City Music Hall, and we can't wait to see what the dapper Aussie has in store for the big night.

This is the fourth time Jackman has hosted the ceremony that celebrates the best of New York's theater scene. The X-Men actor has received much praise for his past Tony performances — including nabbing an Emmy for the 2004 show. Jackman will be taking over for Neil Patrick Harris, who hosted the show for the past three years. In his Instavideo, Jackman said he couldn't keep mum any longer and wanted his fans to know first that he signed on to host the ceremony. You can tune in to CBS this June to catch Wolverine in all of his hosting glory. But, if you can't wait for summertime, we've got just the clip for you. Check out the video below to see Jackman go head to head with Harris to determine who's the better host. (Digital Spy)
