The ‘Pitch Perfect’ star brings super-sized laughs in this just-released teaser video.
Since bursting onto the scene in movies like Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect, Rebel Wilson has pretty much become America’s new sweetheart — better luck next time, Jennifer Aniston — so it only makes sense that she should be given the prestigious task of hosting the 2013 MTV Movie Awards! During the emotional final episode of Jersey Shore on Dec. 20, MTV debuted the first official promo for next year’s big show, and it looks just as ridiculous as you might expect.
In the video, Rebel is taken prisoner by Matt Lucas — who also played her counterpart in Bridesmaids — but even under the harshest of conditions, nothing can keep Rebel from her one true love: a sweet, sweet candy bar. (Fat Amy is real, you guys!)
Rebel joins a long list of funny ladies to have hosted MTV’s annual salute to cinema, one that includes the likes of Sarah Silverman (2007), Jessica Alba (2006), Lindsay Lohan (2004) and Sarah Michelle Gellar (2002).
“MTV will unleash rising superstar, Rebel Wilson, on the MTV Movie Awards,” the network announced in a statement. “Known for her groundbreaking and hilarious performances in the hit movies Bridesmaids and most recently Pitch Perfect, Wilson will star in the role of host and redefine the MTV Movie Awards with her top secret plans!”
Watch the first official promo for the MTV Movie Awards below, then vote and drop a comment: Do you think Rebel will make a good hostess? Do you hope she brings Fat Amy to the party?
