Stephen Colbert “threatened” by ‘Tony’ host Neil Patrick Harris [VIDEO]

Stephen Colbert and Sunday ‘Tony Awards’ host Neil Patrick Harris discuss juggling babies, theater as Olympics event, Sunday’s “Tony Awards” broadcast on CBS, and who else in Hollywood is gay.

“I find you a threat, becase you’re the classic triple threat,” Colbert said by way of opening the interview on his Comedy Central show.

“You're an actor/singer/dancer. Your'e the biggest single threat of all: you’re a gay person I like. You’re threat is that you make being gay not seem threatening. .. it’s almost as if your happiness does not take my happiness away. Do you admit that you’re a likeable gay person?”

“I want to thank you for allowing a gay man on your show,” Harris said.

“You know what? It’s a first,” Colbert acknowledged.

“I don't think so,” Harris teased.
