Neil Patrick Harris has explained why he’s so excited about hosting the 2013 Emmy Awards.
The How I Met Your Mother
star told USA Today
, “I love TV and the motley crew of people that are part of it. I think that makes for a better viewing experience of television than ever, and I’m happy to be the guy in charge of honouring that.”
Harris also said that he has no plans to leave the stage during the ceremony, unless he really has to go. “I’ll be staying on stage the whole show-with a few exceptions,” he said. “I thought about having a colostomy bag, but I thought that would not be good for the first few rows. It would be like a Gallagher show if things go wrong, so I may have to excuse myself for a minute or three a couple of times during the show,” reported The Huffington Post
He spoke about why he doesn’t feel like he has to prove himself after previously hosting the Emmys and the Tony Awards, saying; “There’s a lot of awards, so I thankfully don’t have to do a lot of work. I get to come up with some funny one-liners if someone vomits, I get to joke about it, but there’s not a lot of vomit. Charlie Sheen hasn’t been on Two and a Half Men
Harris has also promised that there will be at least one song-and-dance routine, but he added that it would be different from his previous performances.
Primetime Emmys will air Sunday on CBS.
