Los Angeles: Actor Neil Patrick Harris has been roped in to star in the Christmas-themed promo to promote the upcoming 87th Academy Awards.
The 41-year-old actor was wearing a tuxedo with a red scarf on the joyful holiday and shares his idea for a perfect Christmas gift, reported Ace Showbiz.
"This holiday season, give your family a gift they'll never forget. Instead of traditional presents, give them the gift of simply telling them to watch me host the Oscars," he said standing beside a giant Oscar statue.
The 'How I Met Your Mother' star will host the Oscars on February 22, 2015 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles.
Academy Honorary Awards are given to Jean-Claude Carriere, Hayao Miyazaki and Maureen O'Hara, while a Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award is handed to Harry Belafonte. The nominees for the Academy Awards will be announced on January 15.
