TV stars to appear at MTV Movie Awards

The MTV Movie Awards is an awards show honoring movies, so why am I talking about on a TV Web site? Two words: Josh Duhamel.

OK, to be fair there are a number of television stars slated to appear on Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, not just Duhamel of Las Vegas. Hotties John Krasinski, from The Office, and Katherine Heigl, from Grey’s Anatomy, are scheduled to present.

Other presenters includes: Cameron Diaz, Lindsay Lohan, Victoria Beckham, Jessica Biel, Mandy Moore, Robin Williams, Justin Long, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Samuel L. Jackson, Amanda Bynes, Chris Tucker, Seth Rogen, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Chiklis, John Travolta, Zac Efron, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Evans and Ioan Gruffudd.

Long-time readers know about my never-ending crush on Duhamel, and I admit it will probably take me to the theater to watch his new film Transformers, that I probably wouldn’t watch otherwise unless someone paid me. Duhamel fighting giant robots, it can’t be all bad can it?

Krasinski and Moore are probably attending the MTV Movie Awards to plug their new film License to Wed, which for the record I would watch, whether or not cutie Krasinski was in it. Since he is, that’s just the icing on the cake.

Mike Myers is also being honored at the show with the “MTV Generation Award” for his contributions to Hollywood. I say it’s about time Myers gets some respect. After all, where would be without his Shrek and one of the greatest words ever introduced into our vernacular: “Schwing?”

So, check out the MTV Movie Awards beginning with the pre-show coverage at 7:30 p.m. on MTV. Duhamel, Shia Lebouf and Tyrese will join MTV News’ Tim Kash to reveal a never-before-seen clip of Transformers.

The show airs at 8 p.m. on MTV live Sunday, June 3. Sarah Silverman is hosting.
