CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Neil Patrick Harris is everything Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals wants in its man of year.
He’s an award-winning actor of stage, television and film, a singer and dancer, a repeat host of both the Emmy and Tony awards and a magician.
On Thursday, Harris was named the collegiate acting troupe’s man of the year for his ‘‘lasting and impressive contributions to the world of entertainment.’’
‘‘With his enviable reputation as a host and showman, we look forward to hosting Mr. Harris for an entertaining and unforgettable evening to recognize his achievements,’’ Hasty Pudding President Tony Oblen said.
Hasty Pudding Theatricals is the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe, dating to the late 18th century. Harris will be given his pudding pot following a parade through Harvard Square and a roast scheduled for Feb. 7.
