In case you hadn’t already guessed by his prominent placement in the hilarious bio video for host Aziz Ansari or his memorable past appearances , Zac Efron is a big fan of the MTV Movie Awards. Now, the Hollywood heartthrob will be returning to the most outrageous, unpredictable awards show of the year — and bringing some friends along for good measure.
Vanessa Hudgens and Miranda Cosgrove will be joining Zac at this year’s Movie Awards ceremony, airing live June 6 from the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, California, as presenters.
Efron appeared in TV shows like “Firefly,” “ER” and “Summerland” before landing the role of Troy Bolton in the 2006 Disney Channel movie “High School Musical.” Soon after, Efron was an overnight sensation and has since starred in “Hairspray,” “17 Again” and “Me and Orson Welles.”
It was on the set of the “High School Musical” movies that Efron would fall for Vanessa Hudgens, another young star who had appeared in shows like “Drake & Josh” and “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody” and films such as “Thirteen” and “Thunderbirds.” She also became an overnight superstar playing Gabriella Montez in the “Musical” films, then went on to appear in “Bandslam.” She is about to release “Beastly” and then “Sucker Punch” and preparing for a stage production of “Rent.” Hudgens and Efron have been dating since 2007 and attended the 2009 Oscars together.
The youngest of the three, Miranda Cosgrove is the star of the TV show “iCarly.” After beginning her acting career at the age of 3, Miranda appeared in numerous commercials over the years before getting her big break on the TV show “Drake & Josh” and in the Jack Black film “School of Rock.” A singer as well as an actress, Cosgrove recently signed a deal to become a spokeswoman for Neutrogena and provides a voice for the upcoming 3-D animated feature “Despicable Me.”
Hosted by comedian Aziz Ansari , the 19th annual show will feature a musical performance by Christina Aguilera . Additional presenters include Steve Carell, Jonah Hill, Russell Brand , Diddy, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz .
Don’t miss the MTV Movie Awards, airing Sunday, June 6, at 9 p.m. ET on MTV!
