Oh man, you're not going to believe this one. The collection of ESPY Award Hosts is an amazing group of the most random people you will ever come across. Let's check out them out again just for the hell of it: Lebron James, Jimmy Kimmel, Lance Armstrong, Matthew Perry, Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson, Jimmy Smits, Norm Macdonald, Jeff Foxworthy, Tony Danza, John Goodman, and Dennis Miller.
Who could they possibly bring on that was even more random than all twelve of the former hosts? This guy.....
I don't really hate the guy, so I guess they could have done worse, but Justin Timberlake??? Just another step in the direction of MTV. Can we get Stu Scott hosting a daily countdown of the days best music videos set to Sports clips? It's the next logical step.
NEW YORK - Justin Timberlake is hosting an awards show — and it's not the Grammys.
ESPN has lined up the 27-year-old singer-actor to host its annual ESPY Awards show this summer, celebrating some of the best and funniest moments in sports over the past year.
The ceremony, to be held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles on July 20, will be televised live on ESPN, the network said Wednesday.
Timberlake says he's a sports junkie.
"I'll do my best to deliver a great show, as I do not want to be roughed up backstage by these athletes who are bigger, faster and stronger than me," he said.
Timberlake will be in the summertime movie, "The Love Guru," with Mike Myers and Jessica Alba. He recently showed a different kind of stage presence when he inducted Madonna into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
