Comedian and "Parks and Recreation" star Aziz Ansari is in final negotiations to host the MTV Movie Awards this June, the Los Angeles Times reports. Neither Ansari's reps nor MTV would comment on the reports, but sources told the Times that it was almost a done deal. Ansari will star with Jonah Hill and Russell Brand in "Get Him to the Greek," which hits theaters on June 4, two days before the MTV Awards.
Palin's series to land on Discovery?
Sarah Palin's reality series appears to be headed for the Discovery Channel, a source at the network tells People magazine. Variety confirms the news, saying that "Sarah Palin's Alaska" has been picked up for a reported $1-million-plus per episode. Variety says Palin's project with reality-TV mogul Mark Burnett ("Survivor," "The Apprentice") "will center on interesting characters, traditions and attractions in the 49th state - with the former governor and vice-presidential candidate as a guide." A spokesman for Palin referred questions to Burnett's office, which did not return requests for comment. Neither did a Discovery rep.
