JASON SUDEIKIS TO HOST THE "2011 MTV MOVIE AWARDS"

Ceremony To Air LIVE On Sunday, June 5 At 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. C From the Gibson Amphitheatre In Universal City, California

New York, NY (April 27, 2011) - The trademark comedic shenanigans of Saturday night are moving to Sunday, June 5! MTV today announced that Jason Sudeikis - leading comedic actor and "Saturday Night Live" regular - will host the "2011 MTV Movie Awards" LIVE on Sunday, June 5, from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California. This year's 20th annual ceremony will mark Sudeikis' first time hosting the awards show as he infuses this year's telecast with his quick comedic wit and improvisational skills. As previously announced, Emmy Award(R) winning producer Mark Burnett ("Survivor," "The Apprentice") returns to executive produce this year's awards that will give out the legendary golden popcorn statue in outlandish categories such as "Best Scared As-Sh**t Performance," "Best Jaw-Dropping Moment" and "Best Line From a Movie." The show will air LIVE on Sunday, June 5 at 9pm ET/PT from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California.

"Smart and funny is the new rock and roll for our audience - and that combo pretty much sums up Jason. He is a smartass and a gentleman who never goes for the easy or obvious joke," said Stephen Friedman, President of MTV. "Because of that, he is the ideal Movie Awards host and we are confident with him anchoring the show our audience is in store for unexpected and crazy moments with Hollywood's biggest stars and musicians."

"I'm sincerely flattered that the folks from the Mostly Teenage Viewers network have invited me to host this year and I look forward to keeping the streak of flawless and critically-lauded movie award show hosting in 2011 alive," said Jason Sudeikis.

Sudeikis joins the ranks of past hosts such as Aziz Ansari, Andy Samberg, Ben Stiller, Jimmy Fallon, Mike Myers, Sarah Silverman and Justin Timberlake. The celeb-filled event is MTV's bold nod to the typical awards shows celebrating the year's best in movies. Hailed for one-of-a-kind moments, film parodies, and outrageous acceptance speeches, the "MTV Movie Awards" has produced some of the most unforgettable moments in award show history.

Jason Sudeikis is currently in his sixth season as a cast member on NBC's venerable show "Saturday Night Live." Sudeikis worked for two years as a writer on the show before becoming a series regular in 2005. He has won over audiences with his impersonations of Vice President Joe Biden, "American Idol" winner Taylor Hicks, and the hip-hop dancer recurring character in the "What Up With That" sketch.t Jason was recently seen starring opposite Owen Wilson in the Farrelly Brothers film "Hall Pass," which was released by New Line on February 25, 2011. Jason will next be seen starring opposite Jason Bateman and Charlie Day in the New Line film, "Horrible Bosses," which will be released on Friday, July 8, 2011.

Jason's additional film credits include "The Bounty Hunter," in which he starred alongside Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler; New Line's, "Going The Distance," in which he starred opposite Drew Barrymore and Justin Long; and "What Happens In Vegas" with Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher.

Jason can also be heard portraying the voice of two principle characters on Fox's hit animated comedy series "The Cleveland Show" by creator Seth MacFarlane. Sudeikis also guest-starred on, "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" as the long-forgotten fourth member of the Paddy's gang, Schmitty, who the gang tries to bring back in.
