Broderick's Vegetable Pelting Fears

FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF (1986) icon MATTHEW BRODERICK is praying he won't be pelted with vegetables at the TONY AWARDS.

The actor, who is married to SEX AND THE CITY stunner SARAH JESSICA PARKER, will be co-hosting this year's (01) ceremony with NATHAN LANE. When they were asked to host the awards the nominations hadn't been announced - so it was only after accepting the task that the pair, who star together in THE PRODUCERS, learnt their show is up for 15 gongs at the event on 3 June (01).

Broderick says, "Hopefully we'll be amusing and not have people throw vegetables at us. "It wasn't like 'Oh, you've got 15 nominations, why don't you also host it?"' (RP/WNWCAN/KW)
