Conan O'Brien offered, rejects Tony hosting gig
The Tony Awards wanted Conan O'Brien, but he didn't want them. Or he couldn't want them. Or something.
The CBS theater awards show apparently approached the ex-"Tonight Show" entertainer, according to Deadline Hollywood, but the offer has been turned down. It's well known that O'Brien can't take on a regular TV gig until September, but what of hosting duties? The Tonys are to be held June 12.
Some sources say that the famous redhead has the "explicit right to do hosting gigs after May 1" but won't be able to run his mouth freely on his NBC breakup. Whether its' because of contracts or because the gig wouldn't be in his best interest, CoCo won't be heading up the show this time around.
O'Brien hosted the 2002 and 2006 Emmy Awards.
