Rebel Wilson Is MTV Movie Awards Host For 2013 (VIDEO)

Rebel Wilson will host the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, April 14, 2013. The network announced Wilson's participation during the series finale of "Jersey Shore" on Thursday night.

Wilson enjoyed great success in 2012. She appeared in four films, including "Pitch Perfect" and "Bachelorette." Wilson also lent her voice to "Ice Age: Continental Drift." Next year, Wilson will co-star opposite Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in "Pain & Gain," a new drama from director Michael Bay. In a fortuitous bit of marketing timing, "Pain & Gain" is out in theaters on April 26, 2013, just two weeks after Wilson's MTV Movie Awards hosting gig.

To announce Wilson as host, MTV aired a video sketch of her being tortured for information by her friend and frequent colleague Matt Lucas. The duo played brother and sister in "Bridesmaids."

Watch the video above. The MTV Movie Awards will be handed out on April 14, 2013.
