Cameron Diaz and Jessica Alba to present at ESPYs

Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel will present at this year’s ESPY Awards, the annual gala that mixes athletes with celebrities as ESPN celebrates the best and brightest in the world of sports. The Sex Tape stars will be handing out the hardware along with Jessica Alba, Kiefer Sutherland, and Jim Parsons. This year’s event, hosted by Drake, will take place on July 16.

The world of sports is an unusual industry to hand out awards for being the “best” or the “greatest”—since those issues typically get settled on the field, court, etc. But ESPN has successfully leveraged its relationships with jocks and beautiful people to make the ESPYs a high-profile event, now celebrating its 22nd telecast. Drake follows an impressive list of hosts that includes Jon Hamm, Seth Meyers, Justin Timberlake, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jamie Foxx.

Additional celebrity presenters for this year’s event will be announced at a later date.

There’s no word yet on whether Drake will rap his way through the show, but we can only hope. Check out his announcement via Twitter below:
