Neil Patrick Harris wants to host the Oscars again

Los Angeles - Neil Patrick Harris would love to host the Oscars again.

The 42-year-old actor presented the prestigious awards ceremony in Los Angeles earlier this year and admits he would definitely be up for the challenge if he's approached to do it a second time.

The former How I Met Your Mother star said: "I knew what I was getting into. It's a beast, but I'd love to do it again if I was asked!"

The four-time Emmy winner is gearing up for the launch of his new live weekly variety series, Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris, on NBC later this month and claims it's a dream come true.

He explained: "You'll get to see a bunch of cool shit. It's essentially showing audiences six or seven shows simultaneously. There are singing-competition shows and there are dancing-competition shows already. I didn't think there was room in the world for another version of that.

"I'm going to be pranking celebrities... I went and photobombed a wedding. It will be fun and, I'm hoping a little bit game changing."

Neil also plans to invite some of his celebrity friends to join him on the show.

He told Us Weekly magazine: "We have a celebrity announcer every week. I'm not supposed to say who our first one is, but it rhymes with Peace Mithertroon."
