Tony Award nominee Sean Hayes (Will and Grace)will host The 64th Annual Tony Awards, to be broadcast live on CBS from Radio City Music Hall in New York, on Sunday June 13. The annual awards show honors achievements on Broadway.

Hayes is currently starring on Broadway in Promises, Promises alongside Kristin Chenoweth. He received a Tony Award nomination for the role, as well as nominations from the Drama League and the Outer Critics Circle. The actor recently received some unwanted attention when Newsweek published an opinion piece that said openly homosexual actors can never be convincing in heterosexual roles, singling out Hayes in Promises, Promises and Jonathan Groff on Glee.
