Well this should be a fun evening!

Your hosts for this year's MTV Movie Awards have just been revealed—and they're definitely going to bring the laughs.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will take center stage with none other than Kevin Hart on April 10 for this year's main event.

The two actors will also be gearing up for their upcoming flick together, Central Intelligence, which is slated to hit movie theaters on June 17.

"It's an honor to be hosting the MTV Movie Awards with a guy who's not only one of the funniest guys on the planet, but who's often mistaken as my twin, Kevin Hart," said The Rock in a press release. "We live for our fans and promise to make this an epic, historic unforgettable night for them."

"I love hosting—it's my thing," added Hart. "Dwayne and I are the perfect team for the epic 25th anniversary show. It's going to go down."

In a fan-forward first, MTV is giving the audience the once-in-a-lifetime chance to write and direct the official promo campaign with the two stars via multiple simultaneous live streams. Beginning Saturday at 2 p.m. ET, the event will broadcast across Facebook Live, YouTube, Periscope, Meerkat and YouNow, giving fans the opportunity to direct the hosts via comments and tweets using #movieawards. 

In an ironic twist, Amy Schumer was last year's host and she was offered some sage words of wisdom before she hosted yet another major program, Saturday Night Live.

Schumer posted a screenshot on Twitter of Hart's text message to her and captioned it, jokingly, "Hostile text."

So what were Hart's major pointers for the evening?

"If you get nervous during your monologue just tell the audience that you know me. I promise it will help. Or you can just FaceTime me but I probably wouldn't be able to pick up because I'm busy doing stuff," he joked.

"Just spit balling here…I'm trying to help…you know what f--k it…you will be fine…I hope…God bless…K Hart out."

Hmmm…we wonder if Schumer's planning on dishing any advice to the comedian in response to today's exciting hosting announcement? Only time (and social media) will tell!

Both Hart and Johnson have been nominated for MTV Movie Awards in the past, with the former actually taking home the big prize for the Comedic Genius Award just last year.

During his acceptance speech, the 36-year-old thanked his family and fans for their support all throughout his illustrious career.

"I wanna thank my fiancée for being my rock right now," he told the audience at the time. "I wanna thank my ex-wife for giving me these two kids who are my best friends right now; Heaven for being the most amazing daughter, Hendrix for being the most amazing son. My kids, I'm doing all of this for them. I'm trying to leave a legacy for them. Last but not least my fans—this is for y'all, I love y'all."

April 10th can't come soon enough!
