Whose career is hotter right now than Neil Patrick Harris? Seriously though. He’s heading into season seven on the sitcom How I Met Your Mother and starring in this summer’s movie, The Smurfs and oh yeah, he has a little hosting gig this weekend better known as the Tony Awards!

Neil gears up for the hosting gig again (the last time was two years ago) and told PopEater one of the goals for the show is to appeal to all audiences. “I think the goal is to present all of these productions in a way that makes them desirable for the rest of America and entice them to come to New York and see a show. It’s choosing the right numbers from the shows and explaining and then watching them perform, really.”

So in case you’re wondering, yes, he says, “there will be the inevitable Spider-Man jokes.” He adds, “I don’t know just how far we will go down that path.”

Despite his busy schedule including rehearsals at the moment for Sunday’s big night, Neil also has eight month-old twins, he mentions, there’s still time to sleep! He explains, “It’s been a busy year and when you add two babies into the mix it quantifies your time even more so.” Plus, since they sleep about 11 hours a night that has to help, too.

Being in NYC sounds like a win-win situation for Neil, career and baby-wise alike. “We’re kind of grateful and thrilled to be in New York while this is happening because New York is a great city for little babies, I think. Just going up and down the street, there’s so much to see and the parks are unbelievable.”

The Tony Awards airs on Sunday at 8 p.m. on CBS.
