“The MTV Movie Awards incorporates two of my favorite things. Movies and Awards. If somehow group sex could be involved it would be the greatest night of my life,” the 36-year-old comedian joked in a statement.
This is Russell‘s first time hosting the MTV Movie Awards. He previously hosted the MTV Video Music Awards in 2008 and 2009.
The award show will air live from L.A.’s Gibson Amphitheatre on Sunday, June 3, on MTV at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
