‘NCIS: LA’s’ Barrett Foa Serving as The Tony Awards’ Go-to Social Reporter

FoaHe plays a tech operator on “NCIS: Los Angeles,” stars as Barbra Streisand‘s basement worker in Broadway’s “Buyer & Cellar,” and now Barrett Foa is reprising his role as The Tony Awards’ social media reporter.

Foa will be the go-to social presence for Sunday’s awards ceremony, sharing behind-the-scenes photos, videos, and interviews via his @BarrettFoa Twitter handle. He’ll also tweet out top moments and images from rehearsals. Fans will be able to follow Barrett’s social activities at CBS.com/barrett.

Unlike last year, Foa will have a social checklist to complete—15 of them to be exact. Taking an on-stage selfie, tracking down an actual Tony Award and then tweeting the photo, and sparring with “Rocky” star Andy Karl are just three of the tasks Foa will have to complete.

“If you have a Tony Awards dare for me, tweet it out and I’ll try and get it done,” Foa told Mashable. “The wackier, the more fun, the better. There’s something so quirky and fun and nerdy about the Tony Awards. … We’re dorks being silly up there.”

We’ll keep an eye out for Foa’s social antics ahead of the Tony’s, which air Sunday at 8pmET on CBS.
