MTV Movie Awards to be hosted by Aziz Ansari
Aziz Ansari may not be a household name yet, but he will be after his next gig. Recently he can be seen on the NBC show “Parks and Recreation,” that is from the producers of “The Office.” In addition, he landed a role in MTV’s sketch show “Human Giant,” which really put him on the radar. Since then he has appeared on “Flight of the Conchords” and as a recurring role on “Scrubs.” Now he is going to be hosting the MTV Movie Awards and you can bet that his career will only go up from here.
MTV announced that in a statement he said, “I’m so happy Ronnie from ‘Jersey Shore’ was unavailable and this exciting opportunity was able to come my way.” They report that general manager of MTV stated, “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.”
The MTV Movie Awards will air live on Sunday, June 6 at 9 p.m. ET.
