“Saturday Night Live” comic Jason Sudeikis has been named the host of the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. The 35-year-old “Hall Pass” star will lead the event at the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, California, on June 5.
He said of his new role, “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.”
MTV President Stephen Friedman added, “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.”
“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.”
The nominees for the awards show will be based on the people’s votes at MovieAwards.MTV.com. They will be announced on Tuesday and voting will continue until June 4.
Sudeikis will be seen next in the star-studded comedy “Horrible Bosses” alongside Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, Colin Farrell, Donald Sutherland, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Julie Bowen, and Kevin Spacey. He will also star in another ensemble cast film “Movie 43″ this year.
This week, the cast of the upcoming animated flick “Rio” held the world premiere for their movie in—wouldn’t ya know—Rio de Janeiro! Jesse Eisenberg (who voices the main character Blu) and his co-stars headed down to Brazil for all the colorful fun, including Will.i.am. who snapped pictures with his “Rio” pal Anne Hathaway (pictured) and shared with followers, “Me and ann hathaway in rio…she sings the fabulous by the way.” But they weren’t the only ones enjoying themselves, as Jamie Foxx, who also lends his voice to the movie, previously posted, “I’m canceling my life…. I’m in Brazil to stay…..”
Meanwhile, back in La La Land, the ladies of “Sucker Punch” held their premiere on Wednesday night. Everyone from Emily Browning to Vanessa Hudgens walked the red carpet, and it seems Zack Snyder’s dreamy caper is already getting raves. “Juno” writer and all-around kick-butt chick herself Diablo Cody checked out the film and gave her own unique thoughts on it from her Twitter, “Saw the amazing “Sucker Punch” last night. I have officially retitled it “Holly Madison vs. the World.”
