Rebel Wilson set to host MTV Movie Awards

Rebel Wilson sings, dances and summons laughs -- and that's just in the opening moments of this weekend's MTV Movie Awards.

The Australian actress is hosting the show, and she's set to start the ceremony by singing solo, The Associated Press reports.

Wilson and her co-stars from "Pitch Perfect" rehearsed a multigenre opening medley Friday that features Wilson spoofing last year's films and spinning nunchakus.

Brittany Snow, Anna Camp and Skylar Astin, along with a troupe of gymnastic dancers, joined the first-time host at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, Calif., to run through four songs not featured in the film. MTV insists on keeping the titles a surprise until Sunday's show.

Wilson will be joined at the MTV Movie Awards by presenters such as Brad Pitt, Melissa McCarthy, Seth Rogen and Kerry Washington and performers including Selena Gomez. Jamie Foxx, Will Ferrell and Emma Watson will receive special awards at the ceremony, which will be broadcast live on MTV from 9-11 p.m. EDT.
