Jason Sudeikis


The 'Saturday Night Live' star is 'flattered' that he's been selected to lead the award show with teenagers as its major audience.

Jason Sudeikis will be the new MTV Movie Awards host, marking the third time the committee has assigned a comedy actor to fill the position. Sudeikis, a regular of "Saturday Night Live" will make his debut as host at the annual ceremony's 20th year which will be held on June 5 at Universal City's Gibson Amphitheater.

"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," Jason said in a statement.

MTV President Stephen Friendman said Sudeikis was selected because "smart and funny is the new rock 'n' roll". Last year, the network hired "Parks and Recreation" star Aziz Ansari and the year before, they recruited another "SNL" star Andy Samberg.

The 2011 MTV Movie Awards nominees will be announced on May 3 and voting will continue through June 4. In exception is the category of Best Movie which voting will remain open throughout the live ceremony.
