Johnson and Hart recently teamed up for the action comedy Central Intelligence (hitting theaters on June 17th) and will take the stage to co-host the awards show on April 9th.

“It’s an honor to be hosting the MTV Movie Awards with a guy who’s not only one of the funniest guys on the planet, but who’s often mistaken as my twin, Kevin Hart,” said Dwayne Johnson. “We live for our fans and promise to make this an epic, historic unforgettable night for them.”
“I love hosting – it’s my thing,” said Kevin Hart. “Dwayne and I are the perfect team for the epic 25th anniversary show. It’s going to go down.”
“Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart define what it means to be modern movie stars,” said Executive Producer Casey Patterson. “They have a direct and personal relationship with their fans, who love them for it and have made them two of the biggest entertainers in the world. They are bringing the action and comedy to the big 25th anniversary of the MTV Movie Awards, which makes me excited and frankly a little afraid. Double trouble!”
The 2016 MTV Movie Awards will be executive produced by Casey Patterson and Garrett English.
