‘Parks & Recreation’ Star Hosting 2010 MTV Movie Awards

aziz ansari Parks & Recreation Star Hosting 2010 MTV Movie Awards

Breakout comedian Aziz Ansari from NBC’s Parks & Recreation is the confirmed host for this year’s MTV Movie Awards.  Read on to find out more about this year’s show and what he had to say about scoring the hosting duty!

He made an appearance at last year’s show and had the short-lived sitcom Human Giant on MTV, so it makes sense that this budding comedian takes on the hosting gig at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.

Aziz commented, “I’m so happy Ronnie from Jersey Shore was unavailable and this exciting opportunity was able to come my way” (MTV).

You can expect more clever quips and video spoofs from the funny man at the 19th annual awards show.  The ceremony will be recorded at the Gibson Amphitheater at Universal City, CA, and airs live on June 6th at 9 p.m. ET

The voting process begins on May 11, where fans decide on their favorite movies, scenes, actors and more from the best movies of 2009!  What do you think of Aziz hosting the award show this year? Will he be funny or a flop?
