MTV will employ Russell's "Brand" (see what I did there?) of witty English comedy on June 3, the night of the awards. No stranger to hosting for MTV, Brand has twice helmed the MTV Video Music Awards. But it may be fun to hear him announce the best "fiwm" category.

Brand can will also appear this summer as part of the star-studded Rock of Ages cast. What do you think? Will Brand "Gervais"-out and insult his Hollywood peers? Or will he keep it jovial?
