Andy Samberg's MTV Hosting Tips for Jason Sudeikis

Andy Samberg Has MTV Movie Awards Hosting Tips For Jason Sudeikis

Thanks to Freya and Becky for the scoop!

Andy Samberg at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards:

Andy Samberg slayed the crowd as host of the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. He shared a naked limo ride with Justin Timberlake, pronounced himself "the best intro-er of people intro-ing things" and lampooned action movies in a hilarious video in which he crooned, ''Cool guys don't look at explosions. They blow things up and then walk away.''

The "Saturday Night Live" star, in other words, knows a thing or two about hosting the wackiest movie awards show on the planet. And thus, he's got some sage advice for "SNL" castmate Jason Sudeikis, who's taking on emcee duties for this year's show, airing live on June 5 — not that he thinks Sudeikis needs much help.

"What advice can you give to a guy that has it all?" Samberg said when we caught up with him and his Lonely Island pals while they were promoting their upcoming comedy album, Turtleneck & Chain.

"Be yourself, grab 'em by the scruff of the neck and don't let go," he went on to advise Sudeikis. "Wear a nice suit. Hydrate. Crunches. Make sure 'Twilight' wins everything so the crowd is lively. Rig the results!"

Hmmm, that's one way of doing it. Another way would be to follow the helpful tips of Aziz Ansari, who hosted the Movie Awards last year. "It's so much work, so definitely have a lot of uppers on hand, like just drugs that'll get you fired up," he joked to us recently. "PCP is good to stay up all night, get all the work done. It's a cool thing, though; it's back in vogue. It's like Twitter, PCP. It's like trendy things: Twitter, PCP, Jonas Brothers."

The 20th annual MTV Movie Awards air live Sunday, June 5, at 9 p.m. ET.


Thanks again to Freya and Becky for the scoop!

I'm secretly hoping that they invite Andy back to host again, but I wish Jason the best (and it's cool that Andy's friends are getting the opportunity to host). Jason would definitely make a funny and more traditional wisecracking host than Andy would.

I'm curious about Jason, though. His last opportunity to break out (Hall Pass with Owen Wilson) didn't do so well. Now he's paired opposite Jason Bateman (Arrested Development, Couples Retreat, Hancock) and Charlie Day (Always Sunny in Philadelphia), with Jeniffer Aniston, Colin Farrell, Kevin Spacey, and Donald Sutherland supporting. Can he break out, or will his opportunities run out (like Will Forte)? Murdering bosses doesn't seem like a clear win, but if it's done right it will (and it's from the director of Four Christmases, so I have hope).

Hopefully it will lead to some more supporting roles at the very least (but I'm hoping this will help the careers of both Jasons). If nothing else maybe people will see it just for the supporting roles.

Anyway, what do you think of Andy's interview here with the dudes? Any thoughts on that?

tbh i think it's kinda random that jason hosts...i love him but I don't see him as the host type, especially if it's for a young show like the mtv movie awards. But as always I'm really looking forward to it... though I hate the whole twilight-wins-everything thing

Anony 1, No but we'll keep our eyes open.

Anony 2, I know what you mean. I think Jason was just as surprised. I read his statement and it was something like "I'm flattered that the producers of Mostly Teenage Viewers would want me to host..." So it's pretty obvious that he doesn't quite understand too, other than the fact that he's on a show they watch (some of them, probably because of Andy though) and that he's probably the most sarcastic and tongue-in-cheek person on SNL, which I do think would make a good host.

So they probably saw his brand of humor and thought that would work well as a host. I think they're right, but as you said, he's probably not super popular with this crowd. Probably his agent has been trying to get him on shows to promote his movie(s), so this probably fit in with those efforts.

Andy's right. Being yourself is the key to becoming an effective host in any event. Aside from that, being adaptable can also make an event host livelier.
