Aziz Ansari: MTV Movie Awards Host!!!

Parks & Recreation funnyman Aziz Ansari will host the 2010 MTV Movie Awards from the Gibson Amphitheatre stage on Sunday (June 6) in Universal City, Calif.

The 27-year-old comedian joked, “Ronnie from Jersey Shore was unavailable, so I am indeed hosting the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.”

“Our audience fell in love with Aziz on Human Giant. They followed him to the movies, TV and stand-up, and connect with him daily online,” said Stephen Friedman, general manager of MTV. “Aziz is the perfect host for the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, as he will bring his innovative comedy and distinctive style to the movie industry’s most rebellious night on television.”

FYI: Aziz also joked, “In order to promote my turn as Charlotte in the upcoming film, Sex and the City 2, I am going to host the MTV Movie Awards.”

  • Beth

    I feel really now, I have seriously never heard of him…

  • Frida

    Um, old news… didn’t we hear about this like months ago?

  • =XXXXX

    Wow. this is an amazing opportunity for him. I love him and trust me he is hilarious. He had a show with two other guys on MTV called human giant, and a comedy central special named something “intimate moments for a sensual evening” or something. Finally MTV made a good decision for the host. Now if they could only get Britney to do an “oops i did it again” type performance for the opening…wishful thinking i know….here’s who i think will perform: justin bieber, usher, ciara, black eyed peas, lady gaga, hopefully some cool acts like la roux or mia. Maybe one republic or lady antebellum. Hopefully not kesha or rhianna unless they stop sucking.
