How do you get a clearly middle-aged dude who really couldn’t care less about any kind of Twilight movies to tune in to the upcoming MTV Movie Awards?  Well, getting extremely funny man Aziz Ansari to host would certainly be a good start.

According to the L.A. Times, the Parks and Recreation star is in final negotiations to host the broadcast, which will unfurl live as usual June 6 from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City. The nominations themselves have yet to be revealed.

Aziz live and unfiltered? Yeah, I’ll tune in for that. He’s the funniest thing about Parks and Recreation and was the only funny person in Judd Apatow’s woefully mistitled Funny People, and I’m betting he’ll be the funniest cat in Get Him to the Greek too when that hits June 4. Hit the jump for a list of the dates when, if you’re lucky enough to get a ticket, you can see Ansari live on his Dangerously Delicious standup tour this summer.
