Andy Samberg to Host MTV Movie Awards

One of our favorite SNL guys is moving over to MTV for a night! Andy Samberg will be hosting the 18th Annual MTV Movie Awards this year.

The network announced the news this morning about Andy, who sounds really excited for the gig.

He says, "I'm super excited to host the movie awards. I grew up watching the show and a lot of the past hosts are heroes of mine. Plus my friends and I were writers for the show prior to working at SNL, so it will be a sweet and satisfying homecoming. I can't wait to act really important.”

And MTV thinks Andy is the perfect guy for the job.

GM Stephen Friedman says, "Andy's connection with the MTV audience is so strong...it's electric. We can't wait to see what subversive take he’ll have on our audience’s favorite movies of the year. We, like Andy's many fans, are thrilled he’s decided to grace MTV with his unique talent."

Anyone who comes up with D**k In A Box is a genius to us! Tune in to the MTV Movie Awards May 31st!
