Every year around this time, buzz surrounding who will hand out that year's Tony Awards begins to bubble up. Some of this year's names have been released and include some of the biggest names in theater. Interestingly, however, some Hollywood names have come up, as well. On the list for 2012 are: Amanda Seyfried, who stars in the upcoming film adaptation of Les Miserables, Paul Rudd, Cheryl Crow (who is composing the score for the upcoming Broadway adaptation of the film Diner), and Nick Jonas, who recently closed out the Tony-winning Broadway revival of H2$. Other presenters include Tyler Perry, Jessica Chastain (who will star in the upcoming revival of The Heiress), Jim Parsons (star of the current revival of Harvey), five-time Tony-winner Angela Lansbury (currently appearing in Gore Vidal's The Best Man), 2011 featured actress Tony-winner Ellen barkin, Bernadette Peters, Candice Bergen, Christopher Plummer, James Marsden, Mandy Patinkin, and the composers of The Book of Mormon -- Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The awards ceremony will be held at the Beacon Theatre on June 10th and will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris. Additional presenters will be announced throughout the week.
