Watch: Neil Patrick Harris Reveals Secrets for Upcoming Oscar Telecast

After successful stints at the Emmys and the Tonys, Neil Patrick Harris has finally been called on to host the Academy Awards this Sunday.

Harris begins the video with the disclaimer, “I don’t where or how I can give spoilers without the taser coming out again.” Find out just how much Harris reveals, and start off Oscar week with an insider’s look, by checking out the video below:
