Russell Brand to Host 2012 MTV Movie Awards

by at . Comments

The man, the myth, the legendarily zany Russell Brand will host the MTV Movie Awards on June 3, the cable network officially confirmed this week.

The comedian, who has hosted the MTV VMAs twice, will front the ceremony for the first time at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, Calif.

Brand said, "This MTV Movie Awards will be more impressive than The Avengers and you won't have to wait an hour for someone to Hulk out."

Russell Brand Testifies

MTV President Stephen Friedman also said of the 36-year old's involvement:

"With his amazing ability to span the full spectrum of comedy from the most high to low-brow, Russell's smart, unpredictable wit uniquely connects to our audience."

"His rock-n-roll sensibility and fearlessness give us the perfect partner with whom to take a leap of faith with as we meld the worlds of movies and music on one very special night."

Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Mila Kunis will all present at the bash. Check out our list of 2012 MTV Movie Award nominations to see who's up for the golden popcorns.
