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.

Who's your favorite MTV awards show host so far? And do you think Rebel has what it takes? Watch the full-length video above, then sound off in the comments!
