Will Smith has been chosen to host Nickelodeon's 2012 Kids' Choice Awards and the ceremony is set to air live on Saturday, March 31, at 8 p.m. ET.

Smith has won ten Kids' Choice Awards and was announced as host on January 11, taking over from three-time host Jack Black, who hosted last year's Award show.

Will Smith is set to reprise his character alien-fighting Agent J in "Men in Black III." In the third film in the franchise, Smith's character will be seen "jumping" back in time to 1969 and teaming up with his old partner, Agent K.

The Sony Pictures film is set for release on May 25, 2012 and will mark the first movie in the hit franchise in 10 years. "Men in Black II" made more than $441 million worldwide since it was released in 2002, while the original 1997 film earned $589 million.

Viewers can vote for their favorite nominees on the official Nickelodeon website beginning on March 1.
