Jason Sudeikis' next hosting gig is a little bigger than the '80s sportscaster he plays on 'Saturday Night Live.'

The 'SNL'-er has been tapped to host the MTV Movie Awards from Los Angeles on June 5.

"I'm sincerely flattered that the folks from the Mostly Teenage Viewers network have invited me to host this year, and I look forward to keeping the streak of flawless and critically lauded movie awards show hosting in 2011 alive," Sudeikis told MTV News of his new gig.

The six-year 'SNL' vet will appear in the film 'Horrible Bosses' this summer with Jason Bateman and Charlie Day. First, though, he'll finish out the sketch show's 36th season with hosts Tina Fey, Ed Helms and Justin Timberlake.

"Smart and funny is the new rock and roll for our audience - and that combo pretty much sums up Jason," MTV president Stephen Friedman said. "He is a smartass and a gentleman who never goes for the easy or obvious joke. Because of that, he is the ideal Movie Awards host, and we are confident with him anchoring the show, our audience is in store for unexpected and crazy moments with Hollywood's biggest stars and musicians."
