Tom Hanks - Tom Hanks and Scarlett Johansson to present at Tony Awards

Tom Hanks and Scarlett Johansson will present at this year's Tony Awards.

The 56-year-old actor - who has been nominated for his role in the Nora Ephron play 'Lucky Guy' - and the 28-year-old actress - who narrowly missed out on a Tony nomination for 'Cat On A Hot Tin Roof' - have been added to the line-up of presenters for the 67th Annual Awards.

Other confirmed presenters include award-winning actors, Cuba Gooding Jr - who earned an Oscar for Best Supporting Act in 1996 for his role in sports comedy 'Jerry Maguire' - and Jesse Eisenberg, who was presented with an Oscar for his role in 'The Social Network'.

Martha Plimpton and Jon Cryer are also set to grace to stage as presenters as well as other celebrity guests at the event - which will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris - and will be aired live from New York's Radio City Music Hall on CBS on June 9.

Neil hosted the event last year and in 2009, a stint which earned him and the production team an Emmy Award, and he can't wait to helm the show again.

He said: ''I'm thrilled to be a part of this year's Tony Awards. Not only will I be shining a spotlight on the best that Broadway has to offer, but hopefully I'll score some free house seats to a show - or five!''
