Berry, Maguire to present MTV Awards

LOS ANGELES: Catwoman and Spider-Man will present awards at the upcoming MTV Movie Awards — or, at least, their real-life alter-egos, Halle Berry and Tobey Maguire, will. Other presenters at the irreverent ceremony will include Snoop Dogg, Dave Chappelle, Kirsten Dunst, Eve, Jimmy Fallon, Kate Hudson and Scarlett Johannson, the cable channel announced Monday.

Lindsay Lohan, the 17-year-old star of ‘Mean Girls’, is set to host the show, which will be broadcast June 10. ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl’ has the most MTV Movie Award nominations with six, including best movie and best on-screen team for co-stars Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom. D12, the Beastie Boys and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are among the bands scheduled to perform at the show, which will be taped June 5 at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California. ‘Spider-Man 2’, the sequel to the 2002 blockbuster, will be in theatres in the United States June 30. ‘Catwoman’, in which Berry stars as the feline comic book character, comes out July 23. — AP
