Russell Brand to host the 2012 MTV Movie Awards

russell-brand-mtv-movie-awards-rock-of-ages-katy-perryMTV has just announced that comedian Russell Brand will host the 2012 MTV Movie Awards. The show will air on Sunday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on MTV from the Gibson Ampitheatre in Universal City, CA.

Brand says this is going to be a great show. "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." Jokes like that are the reason he's been asked back for the third time. He previously hosted the show in 2008 and again in 2009.

"With his amazing ability to span the full spectrum of comedy from the most high to lowbrow, Russell's smart, unpredictable wit uniquely connects him to our audience," said Stephen Friedman, President of MTV. "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 together on one very special night."
