Tony Awards 2016: Neil Patrick Harris debuts shaved head on red carpet

Posted on

Before the Tony Awards ceremony Sunday, the surprises had already started on the red carpet.

Neil Patrick Harris debuted a shaved head when he hit the theater with husband David Burtka. The How I Met Your Mother star — who has hosted the Tonys himself four times and won Emmys for three of them — is scheduled to present at this year’s show.

Harris will appear next in Netflix’s adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, starring as Count Olaf (a role that will presumably call for an elaborate, non-shaved hairstyle). Production has begun on the series, which does not have an official release date yet.
