For some reason, being on a hit comedy series does not necessarily prepare you to be the host of an awards show — at least that’s what New Girl’s Lamorne Morris fears when he and co-stars Jake Johnson and Max Greenfield host the Do Something Awards, which air tonight on VH1 at 9 p.m. ET.
“I’m not gonna lie, I might go to the bathroom, like, on myself, onstage,” Morris told VH1’s Kate Spencer.
“I’ll give you 500 bucks if you do it during the show,” Johnson offered.
“500 bucks is not enough,” Morris said. “You would legitimately have to give me everything you’re being paid and what you’re being paid, double it, and then I’d do it.”
Well, that would make for a very different kind of show, wouldn’t it?
Like the rest of us, the guys were excited about all the celebrities set to appear — from Justin Bieber to their own castmate Zooey Deschanel. But Greenfield saw a big opportunity with one particular guest:
“We’ll be hosting — will we also be auditioning for Ben Affleck?” he asked. Oh, we certainly hope so. Or even vice versa — Affleck would make a great fling for Jess!
