Neil Patrick Harris will return to host the 67th Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall in what will be his fourth stint on the show that honors the best of Broadway. The Emmy Award winner and star of the TV comedy "How I Met Your Mother," who won high praise for hosting the Tony Awards last year, said he was very excited to be back. The awards show will air live on June 9th. Veteran Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci will head the jury of this year's Venice film festival, which runs from August 28 through September 7. Bertolucci is best known for his steamy 1972 movie "Last Tango in Paris" and for the 1987 biopic "The Last Emperor", which won nine Oscars and is the only Italian film to have won an Academy Award for best director. The anticipated June 2014 release of the fourth installment of "Jurassic Park," one of the highest-grossing film franchises, has been put on hold, according to Universal Pictures. The decision was made to give "the studio and filmmakers adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version" of Jurassic Park 4. Universal has yet to announce a new date for the release. The first three "Jurassic Park" films generated $1.9 billion in worldwide ticket sales.
