Aziz Ansari Reportedly To Host MTV Movie Awards

Parks and Recreation’s Aziz Ansari is in final negotiations to host the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, airing June 6 in Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Times. Neither Ansari nor MTV has yet confirmed the news, but it seems pretty reasonable as the comic’s career has been on an upward swing as of late, with Parks gaining momentum and Ansari's comedy tour receiving good buzz; plus, the timing would be right, as the comic has an upcoming role in this summer's Jonah Hill-Russell Brand comedy Get Him to the Greek. We’d be even more jazzed if DJ Roomba was announced as the show's "house band." [ShowTracker/LAT]
