Playing host seems to agree with Neil Patrick Harris. After last year’s Creative Arts Emmy Awards, and the June Tonys, the star of How I Met Your Mother is in talks to host the Emmys, which is set to air Sept. 20.
The actor told PEOPLE in June that he planned to emulate Jon Stewart when he hosted the Tonys, but there’s no word yet on his inspirations for the 61st annual Emmy Awards.
The deal isn’t sealed yet, according to the The Envelope. Stay tuned!
