Sean Hayes To Host Tony Awards

Sean Hayes has been named as the host of this year’s Tony Awards. Via press release:

Emmy and SAG Award winner and 2010 Tony Award nominee Sean Hayes, will host the 64th Annual Antoinette Perry “Tony” Awards® on Sunday, June 13th, live from Radio City Music Hall. The Tony Awards will air live on CBS from 8:00-11:00PM (ET/PT time delay). The Tonys are presented by The Broadway League and The American Theatre Wing. Hayes has received critical acclaim for his roles in theatre, television and film and quickly grabbed America’s heart as the hilarious Jack McFarland on “Will & Grace,” a role for which he received an Emmy Award (and six nominations), four Screen Actors Guild Awards, two TV Guide Awards, an American Comedy Award and seven Golden Globe nominations.

Hayes is currently starring in Promises, Promises with Kristen Chenoweth. Maybe that nasty Newsweek piece about him actually helped?
