'Parks and Recreation's' Aziz Ansari confirmed MTV Movie Awards host

"Parks and Recreation" star Aziz Ansari has been officially announced as the host of the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. Zap2it previously reported that he was finalizing a deal back in March.

Though best known for his "Parks and Rec" role and for his character Randy in 2009's "Funny People," Ansari actually got his start on MTV as part of the cast of "Human Giant." In a statement, MTV's general manager Stephen Friedman says, "Aziz is the perfect host for the 2010 MTV Movie Awards as he will bring his innovative comedy and distinctive style to the movie industry's most rebellious night on television."

Never one to miss an opportunity for a statement, Ansari released his own thoughts on the gig. "I'm so happy Ronnie from 'Jersey Shore' was unavailable and this exciting opportunity was able to come my way," he says.
