Sean Hayes will be the host of the Tony Awards next month.

The former ‘Will & Grace’ actor is working on Broadway alongside Kristin Chenoweth in ‘Promises, Promises.’ He has a Tony nomination for best actor in a musical for the role.

CBS made the announcement Monday. The network is broadcasting the Tonys live from Radio City Music Hall in New York on June 13. The musicals ‘Fela’ and ‘La Cage aux Folles’ dominate the nominations.

With Neil Patrick Harris as host, the Tony Awards audience last year was up 19 percent from 2008, leading a run of awards shows that scored solidly in the ratings.
