Hugh Jackman will host the Tony Awards 2014.

The 'Wolverine' actor is set to present the show's 68th annual awards ceremony which will take place in New York City on June 8 and CBS Entertainment, who will broadcast the event, are delighted to have him on board.

Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events, CBS Entertainment, said in a statement: ''We are thrilled to have Hugh Jackman return to host the Tony Awards. Hugh is the ultimate performer - actor, singer and dancer - he does it all, second to none. He is a consummate entertainer and the one you want out there hosting your live television event.''

Hugh previously fronted the Tony Awards between 2003-2005 and this will be the fourth time the 'Les Miserables' star hosts the annual ceremony, which celebrates achievement in live Broadway theatre.

The actor - who has children Oscar, 13, and Ava, eight, with wife Deborra-Lee Furness - won a Tony Award in 2004 for his Broadway portrayal in 'The Boy from Oz', which is based on the life of singer/songwriter Peter Allen.

He was also honoured with a Special Award for Extraordinary Contribution to the Theatre Community at the 2012 Tonys.
