Mark Wahlberg Ready for Insults at MTV Movie Awards

By the time host Rebel Wilson is done with everybody Mark Wahlberg expects to laugh, be surprised – and maybe be a little hurt – at this weekend's MTV Movie Awards.

"I think she may insult some people, but she is very, very funny," Wahlberg, 41, tells PEOPLE at Thursday night's Miami premiere of his movie Pain & Gain, presented by Grey Goose.

The actor certainly seems poised for a Wilson barb. He's nominated for best duo for being paired with a computer-animated bear voiced (profanely) by Seth MacFarlane in Ted. Wahlberg's up against a pal, Will Ferrell, nominated with Zach Galifianakis for The Campaign.

"They better give us that one," he says with a laugh. "Me and Ted had some chemistry, don't you agree? Will and Zach ... I don't know."

The MTV Movie Awards air live Sunday at 9 p.m.
