Adam DeVine is gearing up to host the first ever MTV Movie & TV Awards, and he's even up to take home a few golden popcorns himself. Having a comedian host the show is a return to form for the awards show, but it's a bit unusual that DeVine isn't promoting one major project right now. (Last year's hosts, for instance, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart were promoting their film Central Intelligence). Adam DeVine's new movie isn't hitting theaters any time soon, but he does have a bunch of projects up his sleeve coming out after he hosts MTV's big night.
Unlike his predecessors, DeVine doesn't have a huge summer movie to promote as host of the MTV Movie & TV Awards. The actor just finished the seventh and final season of his show Workaholics for Comedy Central, and with no big releases planned for the rest of the year, DeVine likely saw a break in his schedule and decided to spend it giving out awards to Hollywood's biggest stars.
Granted, just because he doesn't have anything coming out this summer doesn't mean DeVine doesn't have a busy year or two ahead. According to his IMDB page, the comedian is set to star in three upcoming films, two of which he has already filmed.
DeVine will play a romantic comedy lead in When We First Met, about a man (DeVine) who tries to figure out how he got stuck in the friend zone. The film, which also stars Alexandra Daddario and Robbie Amell, does not yet have a release date, but will hopefully come out soon. Next, fans will get to see DeVine play a magic camp instructor in 2018's Magic Camp, co-starring Gillian Jacobs, Aldis Hodge, and Jeffrey Tambor. Finally, DeVine is currently filming Game Over, Man!, a comedy written by his Workaholics co-star and co-creator Anders Holm.
Those are his only projects listed on IMDB, but fans might also get a chance to see DeVine perform in person. Just this past March, the actor completed his "Weird Life Tour" of comedy shows around the country. Furthermore, his stand-up comedy show Adam Devine's House Party is still on the bubble over at Comedy Central and could be picked up for a Season 4.
Levine might not be promoting anything specific when he hosts the MTV Movie & TV Awards, but fans should still be ready to see his face a lot in the upcoming years.
