Mike Myers will host the 2008 MTV Movie Awards, live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, on June 1st, the Associated Press reports.
“Hosting the MTV Movie Awards is like a party, but without having to do beer runs in your mom’s minivan; we do beer runs in Will Smith’s four-story motorhome,” the forty-four year old Shrek star says in a statement.
“Mike Myers blew us away last time he hosted the MTV Movie Awards with his `Lord of the Dance’ and over-the-top musical productions,” says Van Toffler, president of MTV Networks Music, Logo and Films Group.
“He keeps creating iconic film characters that have been etched in the minds of MTV’s audiences forever,” Toffler said. “`The Love Guru’ is sure to spur yet another cultural movement, so we’re elated to have Mike back as our host.”
