Mike Myers has been asked to be the voice of the MTV generation, and is hosting the MTV Movie Awards. God only knows how many times the voice of Shrek will make a guest appearance during his monologue.

“Hosting the MTV Movie Awards is like a party, but without having to do beer runs in your mom’s mini van,” the alter ego of Shrek and Austin Powers, 45, says in a statement about his upcoming emcee duties – adding, “We do beer runs in Will Smith’s four-story motor home.”

The traditionally offbeat ceremony – which presents golden popcorn-box trophies for such categories as best screen kiss and best villain, in addition to best movie – will be broadcast live on MTV from Universal City in California, Sunday, June 1. [People]
