Daniel Radcliffe, Chris Rock tapped for all-star Tony event


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Weeks before he faces off with Lord Voldemort in the series-ending “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” Daniel Radcliffe will face a far-cattier crew when he presents at the Tony Awards.

We’re kidding, of course. All of our love to the Broadway crowd. The Tony producers have assembled an all-star list of trophy presenters for the June 12 event. In addition to Radcliffe, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Whoopi Goldberg have been tapped to present, while THR notes that celebrities expected to grace the stage in some shape or form include Chris Rock, Alec Baldwin, Samuel L. Jackson, Kelsey Grammer, Viola Davis, Vanessa Redgrave, James Earl Jones, Harry Connick, Jr., Christie Brinkley, David Hyde Pierce, Marg Helgenberger, Matthew Broderick and the great Angela Lansbury.

Neil Patrick Harris hosts this year’s Tony Awards, which will be held on June 12 and will be broadcast live on CBS from 8 to 11 p.m.
