NEW YORK —

Chris Tucker will host this year's BET Awards.

The network announced Tuesday that the comedian-actor will host the show June 30 from the Nokia Theater L.A. Live.

Tucker is riding high off of his supporting role in the Oscar-nominated film "Silver Linings Playbook," which starred Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. The 41-year-old is best known for starring in the "Rush Hour" film franchise opposite Jackie Chan.

He said in a statement that he's honored and "looking forward to being part of a really great show."

The BET Awards is part of three-day event the network is putting on that weekend dubbed "BET Experience at L.A. Live." It kicks off June 28 with a Beyonce concert. Other performers throughout the weekend include Kendrick Lamar, Miguel, The Jacksons and R. Kelly.
