NEW YORK (AP) - Jessica Chastain, Nick Jonas, Amanda Seyfried and Jim Parsons are some of the young stars tapped to help host Neil Patrick Harris hand out Tony Awards.

Organizers of the award show unveiled Friday a list of presenters that also includes Paul Rudd, Ellen Barkin, Angela Lansbury, Bernadette Peters, Candice Bergen, Christopher Plummer, James Marsden, Mandy Patinkin, Sheryl Crow and “The Book of Mormon” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

The Tonys will air live on CBS from the Beacon Theatre in New York City on Sunday, June 10.

Chastain, who earned an Oscar nomination for her role in “The Help,” will be making her Broadway debut this fall in “The Heiress,” a play based on the Henry James novel “Washington Square.”
