Jason Sudeikis To Host 2011 MTV Movie Awards
The Saturday Night Live star will front our 20th annual ceremony of cinema...
Star of US TV show Saturday Night Live Jason Sudeikis has been confirmed as the host for the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, which will take place at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, on 5 June.
"I'm sincerely flattered that the folks from the Mostly Teenage Viewers network have invited me to host this year, and I look forward to keeping the streak of flawless and critically lauded movie awards show hosting in 2011 alive," Sudeikis said.
In addition to his exploits on SNL — where over six seasons Sudeikis has portrayed everyone from Vice President Joe Biden to American Idol winner Taylor Hicks - the comedian and actor stars in this summer's Horrible Bosses opposite Jason Bateman and Charlie Day.
"Smart and funny is the new rock and roll for our audience - and that combo pretty much sums up Jason. He is a smartass and a gentleman who never goes for the easy or obvious joke," said Stephen Friedman, president of MTV.
"Because of that, he is the ideal Movie Awards host, and we are confident with him anchoring the show, our audience is in store for unexpected and crazy moments with Hollywood's biggest stars and musicians."
