Neil Patrick Harris Spider-Man Gag: Tony Host Hangs Behind Angela Lansbury (VIDEO)

We had high expectations for Neil Patrick Harris' third round hosting the Tonys, and he didn't disappoint. Sandwiched between his celebrity-studded opening number and a closing song that ended too soon, came this silly but thoroughly enjoyable little gag: NPH dangling like Spider-Man as Angela Lansbury dropped double entendres about hanging from things.

It was not the Spider-Man fall of NPH's dreams, but it was oddly enjoyable, and probably less dangerous! We see a buddy comedy coming out of this somehow.

WATCH the video above.
