Jason Sudeikis has been working plenty hard to prepare for this Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards (9 p.m. ET, tune in!), so while he was taking a break from all that planning, MTV News caught up with the “Saturday Night Live” star for the umpteenth time in the past few days to check in on his progress.
MTV’s Josh Horowitz decided to test Sudeikis’ knowledge of some of the show’s announced guests with a quick word association quiz, and the comedian passed with flying colors. But the best fun of these types of quizzes is trying to figure out how the person got from “Justin Bieber” to, say, “lefty.” Don’t let your mind go to the gutter, Sudeikis said it’s because the crooning young pop star plays with his left hand in basketball.
We’ve come up with our own explanations behind Sudeikis’ word associations after the jump, and feel free to share your own in the comments section below or on Twitter.
Justin Timberlake = Talented
He kind of has to say that, doesn’t he? Especially after Andy Samberg, Justin Timberlake’s “SNL” bff, gave Sudeikis such good hosting advice. It also doesn’t help that the Justin Timberlake-hosted “Saturday Night Live” finale was the most-watched episode all season (for good reason).
“Black Swan” = Fingernails
Somebody has been watching “Black Swan” with Natalie Portman just a bit too much. Though who can blame him, that scene is disgusting.
Justin Bieber = Lefty
Okay, so Sudeikis kind of already explained this one for us (by “kind of,” I mean completely), but there still is some mystery behind this All Stars basketball story. Of course, we could just watch the video of the game, but we like to imagine that Biebs totally beat the crap out of Sudeikis at basketball even though the Movie Awards host is twice his size, and that’s why “lefty” is the first thing he thought of.
The Foo Fighters = Best Live Rock Band Ever
From Foo Fighters to “best live rock band ever”? Obviously, Sudeikis has been playing a whole lot of “Learn To Fly” on Rock Band in his down time. It couldn’t be anticipation for tonight’s closed-door rehearsal or Sunday’s performance or anything.
Robert Pattinson = Steamy, Great Eyebrows, Real Good Volume On That Young Kid’s Hair
Someone has been spending a lot of time staring at RPattz’s chiseled face recently, and with our dot-connecting skills we can’t help but notice that Pattinson is the only “Twilight” star Sudeikis didn’t get for a Movie Awards promo. Could he be mourning the loss of an opportunity to put his hair-dressing skills to work on that “young kid’s hair”?
