Neil Patrick Harris is hosting the 87th annual Oscars on Feb. 22, Variety reports.

Though it’s the “How I Met Your Mother” actor’s first time hosting the Oscars, Harris did host the Tony Awards four times and the Emmy Awards twice. He has also performed on the Oscars before.

Neil Meron broke the news on Twitter Wednesday.

Ellen Degeners hosted the 2014 Oscars. That show saw the best ratings that the Oscars have had in almost 15 years, coming in at 45 million viewers.
