2013 MTV Movie Awards: Rebel Wilson Nabs the Hosting Gig

Universal Pictures

MTV has announced its next MTV Movie Awards host, and they did so in a most unusual way. Last night during the ‘Jersey Shore‘ series finale (which you surely watched intently), the network aired an announcement commercial featuring Hollywood’s “it” girl, Rebel Wilson. Watch the amusing ad after the break!

In an homage to ’80s action flicks, Wilson is seen being beaten by some foreign toughs, led by her ‘Bridesmaids‘ co-star Matt Lucas. The punchline of the ad is about what you’d expect.

Wilson is an interesting choice, as the actress isn’t exactly a household name, but has nonetheless become one of Hollywood’s shining stars. A comedienne in her native Australia, Wilson made a splash here in the states with her supporting turn in ‘Bridesmaids’ as Kristen Wiig‘s rather grotesque roommate. She recently appeared in this year’s ‘Bachelorette‘ and ‘Pitch Perfect,’ and will next be seen in Michael Bay’s upcoming ’Pain & Gain.’

We’ll give MTV this: Wilson isn’t the same old, same old. Do you think she’s an ideal choice? Let us know what you think in the comments and check out the 2013 MTV Movie Awards commercial below. The ceremony will take place on April 14, 2013.
