MTV Movie Awards 2016: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart to host
The MTV Movie Awards have enlisted a little Hart and a big Johnson for hosting duties this year.
The network announced Friday that Central Intelligence costars Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson will host the 2016 ceremony, which air on April 10 at 8 p.m. ET. The show, which marks its 25th anniversary, will be held outdoors and will be taped at Warner Bros. Studios on April 9. And rather than take the conventional route for promoting the awards show, MTV will let fans help shape what Hart and Johnson do to tout their hosting gig.
A livestream will be held on Feb. 20 featuring the two stars, who will take directions from fans commenting and tweeting requests at the stars to do, well, whatever the commenters like. Obviously Hart and Johnson won’t be able to fulfill every request, but whatever does happen on the livestream — hosted across Facebook, Periscope, Meerkat, YouTube, and YouNow — will then be recut based on whatever the duo does for the awards show’s promos. The livestream will begin on Feb. 20 at 2 p.m. ET.
Johnson’s slate of cinematic projects currently includes Baywatch, Fast and Furious 8, Moana, and Central Intelligence. Hart will star in that last film with Johnson, and also has The Secret Life of Pets and his next stand-up film Kevin Hart: What Now? on the way.
