MTV Movie Awards 2016: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart reveal show details
When it comes to the 2016 MTV Movie Awards, co-hosts Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are thinking big — really big.
“It’s the 25th anniversary [of the show], and we want to make it the most epic ever,” says Johnson. “We are literally still working out.”
Following in the tradition of previous hosts like Amy Schumer, Conan O’Brien, and Aziz Ansari, this year’s co-hosts are teasing plenty of over-the-top gags and raunchy jokes,which just so happen to be Johnson’s specialty.
“I can promise you there’s going to be a lot of funny that may or may not include a dick joke referencing size,” says the Baywatch star, laughing.
And if the former wrestling pro has his way, the show will be on fire – literally.
“There’ll definitely be fire,” jokes Johnson. “[And] maybe drag. Kevin would look amazing in drag.”
