Pitch Perfect's Rebel Wilson To Host 2013 MTV Movie Awards
MTV previously announced that the MTV Movie Awards would take place this April, which comes a bit ahead of the usual early-June date. Tonight, during a commercial break for the series finale of Jersey Shore, MTV aired a teaser that revealed Rebel Wilson as the host for the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
The video below has Wilson being tortured by her Bridesmaids co-star Matt Lucas, who is trying to get information out of her. She refuses to talk, but that might be because her mouth is full…
They can torture her, but they can't make her starve!
MTV doesn't actually use the word "host" in the trailer, but the MTV Movie Awards will "star" Rebel Wilson. She follows in the footsteps of Jason Sudeikis, Aziz Ansari, Andy Samberg, Mike Myers and last year's host, Russell Brand among the celebrities to host in recent years. Given that Sarah Silverman was the last female host (in 2007), MTV was probably a bit overdue to pick a female to handle the job. After Wilson's numerous scene-stealing moments in Pitch Perfect, she seems like a perfect choice to handle the role. It should be interesting (and entertaining) to see how she does at the event. And it'd be especially great if Pitch Perfect managed to score a nomination or two, come to think of it.
The 2013 MTV Movie Awards will take place April 14 on MTV.
