Josh Duhamel to host Kids' Choice Awards

There's plenty of green slime in Josh Duhamel's future.

The star of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" on Wednesday was named host of Nickelodeon's 26th Annual Kids' Choice Awards, which will be broadcast from the Galen Center in Los Angeles on March 23.

Duhamel, who starred on the NBC drama "Las Vegas," has already been inducted into Nickelodeon's Arm Fart Hall of Fame and showered in green goo.

The Kids' Choice Awards honor kids' favorites in film, music, sports and television by tallying the votes of kids online and via mobile devices. During the show, green slime is routinely dumped on celebrities and winners receive trophies shaped like blimps.

Last year's awards, hosted by Will Smith, attracted 6.2 million viewers.

As for Duhamel, 40, he appears in writer Nicholas Spark's latest film, "Safe Haven," with Julianne Hough. He's also attached to the drama "You're Not You," with Hilary Swank and Emmy Rossum.
