Rebel Wilson. She’s come a long way from spilling peas on her infected tattoo in Bridesmaids. In 2012, she starred in BacheloretteWhat to Expect When You’re Expecting and, of course, Pitch Perfect, as well as voiced a character in Ice Age: Continental Drift. And it seems like she’s already planning to exercise her comedic chops in the upcoming year because she’s just been announced as the host of the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.

The first promo for the awards show, which aired for the first time last night during the season finale of Jersey Shore, shows a handcuffed Rebel being tortured by a band of men — including her on-screen Bridesmaids brother, Matt Lucas! — to tell them when the date of the show would be. Though she has no lines in the scene, she still adds humor to the routine. You’ll see. According to the network, Rebel will “redefine the MTV Movie Awards with her top secret plans.”

At the 2012 event, while presenting the award for Best Female Video, the Australian actress stole the spotlight from The Wanted – and kind of embarrassed them — as she donned a shirt with a picture of a girl in a skimpy pink bikini and said, “MTV told me if I presented, I would get to take home one of The Wanted… It’s gonna take me a while to choose, so you guys better throw to the nominees.”

Besides acting as a replacement for last year’s host, Kevin Hart, Rebel’s also portraying Chris Colfer‘s best friend in his debut film, Struck by Lightning, due January 11, and she’s also in talks to star in the potential Pitch Perfect sequel. So brace yourself for a whole lot o’ Rebel.

The 2013 MTV Movie Awards airs Sunday, April 14. Who do you hope scores a nomination? What do you think of the host? Watch the promo, then tell us your thoughts!

‘Pitch Perfect’ Star Rebel Wilson to Host the 2013 MTV Movie Awards (VIDEO)

The MTV Movie Awards just got a little funnier.

Pitch Perfect actress Rebel Wilson has been chosen to emcee the April 14 ceremony. And while the show is still months away, the comedienne is already bringing on the laughs.

During Thursday night’s Jersey Shore series finale, viewers got a sneak peek of Wilson’s comedic chops in a short trailer also starring her Bridesmaids costar (and good pal) Matt Lucas.

Wilson’s hosting gig marks the first time a woman has helmed the show since Sarah Silverman in 2007. But, she’s no stranger to MTV’s award shows: Wilson made an unforgettable appearance at this year’s VMAs, presenting alongside Brit boy band The Wanted in a bikini T-shirt while snacking on potato chips.

After landing a breakout role as Kristen Wiig‘s odd roommate in 2011′s Bridesmaids, the Aussie actress quickly rose to fame with her quirky, over-the-top humor.  In 2012 alone, she starred in Bachelorette, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, and most recently, Pitch Perfect.
