Saturday Night Live‘s Jason Sudeikis will host this year’s MTV Movie Awards on June 5. “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 awards show hosting in 2011 alive,” Sudeikis said in MTV’s statement.

“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.”
