MTV has announced that Aziz Ansari is set to host the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.
The average person might be wondering just who Aziz Ansari is as he is not exactly a household name like previous MTV Movie Award hosts like Mike Myers, Lindsay Lohan, and Justin Timberlake.
Anzari is an American born actor and comedian that started his professional career doing stand up comedy on the NYC club scene. He stars as Tom Haverford on the NBC comedy “Parks and Recreation” and also created the cult MTV sketch show Human Giant.
“I’m so happy Ronnie from ‘Jersey Shore’ was unavailable and this exciting opportunity was able to come my way,” Ansari said in a statement.
The 2010 MTV Movie Awards air live from Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, CA on Sunday, June 6th at 9pm.
