This year’s newly announced MTV VMA host got super candid on Jimmy Fallon.

Sebastian Maniscalco graced the big screen last year starring in Oscar-winning movie The Green Book, and you may already know him from the 2018 comedy TAG. Despite being in the Best Picture film, in a recent appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Maniscalco revealed he’s actually quite nervous about hosting the VMAs.

Sebastian shared a clip of him telling his wife, Lana Gomez, about his new hosting gig, and her initial reaction is similar to his own—confusion. He jokes about not knowing Cardi B, but assures everyone that all his years watching MTV will help him be a great host. We’re not worried though—watching the show through Maniscalco’s eyes is guaranteed to be a good time.

Don’t miss the 2019 MTV VMAs Monday August 26 on MTV.
