On April 14, the MTV Movie Awards will feel the thunder from Down Under as “Pitch Perfect” actress Rebel Wilson stars as host of this year’s celebration of all things cinematical. But, as we’ve learned from Wilson’s hilarious car-chase promos with “Magic Mike” hunk Channing Tatum, she could always use a little back-up (or feel up, as the case may be). And now she’s getting it—the back-up part, at least—with a slew of presenters announced Friday (March 29).
Many of the year’s most anticipated films will be represented by multiple cast members. There’s Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto from “Star Trek Into Darkness,” Seth Rogen and Danny McBride from “This Is the End,” and Chris Rock and Adam Sandler from “Grown Ups 2.”
Additionally, Steve Carell, Zac Efron, Melissa McCarthy, Amanda Seyfried and Kerry Washington will also hand out Golden Popcorns to winners in categories including Best Shirtless Moments, Best Fight, Best Kiss and Best Musical Moment.
And the high-profile appearances don’t stop there. “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” actress Emma Watson (who’s nominated for three statuettes) will be on hand to accept the Trailblazer Award, which recognizes young actors who are carving their own unique and diverse paths in the film industry. And for the first time ever, MTV will be bestowing a Comedic Genius Award to “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” actor Will Ferrell, in honor of his ability to make us pee our pants laughing.
It all goes down live Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. ET from the Sony Pictures Studio in Culver City, California. You won’t want to miss a single second of the action!
