Russell Brand has signed on to host the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, and we can only imagine the hilarious routine he'll come up with. This isn't the comedian's first time emceeing the award show, either. The Get Him to the Greek star assumed hosting duties in 2008 and 2009.

"This MTV Movie Awards will be more impressive than The Avengers, and you won't have to wait an hour for someone to Hulk out," the 36-year-old said in a statement Thursday.

The biggest contenders this year are The Hunger Games and Bridesmaids, which have eight nominations each. Known for wacky categories like best on-screen dirtbag, the show never fails to shock, and we can't wait to see who Rusty decides to roast in his opening monologue!

Hollywood's biggest stars like Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron will be on hand for the festivities, which take place June 3 at Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California.

We can't wait to see who takes home the popcorn statue!
