Mike Myers to host MTV Movie Awards


Mike Myers has been tapped to host the 2008 MTV Movie Awards for a second time.

The 17th edition of the annual ceremony, exec produced by Mark Burnett, is set to air live June 1 from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City.

"Hosting the MTV Movie Awards is like a party, but without having to do beer runs in your mom's mini van," Myers quipped. "We do beer runs in Will Smith's four-story motorhome."

Said Van Toffler, president of the MTV Networks Music, Logo and Films Group: "Mike Myers blew us away last time he hosted the MTV Movie Awards with his lord-of-the-dance and over-the-top musical productions."

Myers next stars in the film "The Love Guru."

The 2008 MTV Movie Award nominees will be announced in May.
