Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard channeled their onscreen “Empire” rivalry in a new video announcing that they will be hosting the 2015 Guys Choice Awards on Spike TV.

The duo, who play on-again, off-again exes battling for control of a lucrative record company on “Empire,” will host the awards ceremony on June 6, with the ceremony set to air on Thurday, June 18, at 9 p.m. ET.

“We just worked with Terrence and Taraji on the upcoming season finale of ‘Lip Sync Battle’ and I can promise you that adding their off-the-charts chemistry into the Guys Choice mix will make for one of the most unpredictable nights of the year,” said Casey Patterson, executive producer of Guys Choice, in a statement. “Gird your loins, boys, Cookie is coming to town!”

In addition to hosting, Henson will also receive the “Jean Claude Gahd Damn” award.

Additional honorees include Liam Neeson for “Biggest Ass Kicker,” Chris Pratt for the “Guy of the Year” award, Dwayne Johnson for the “Troops’ Choice,” model Hannah Davis for “Our New Girlfriend,” and Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook for “Top Fantasy Leaguer.”

Presenters include Ben Kingsley and Avan Jogia, stars of Spike’s upcoming miniseries “Tut,” Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tito Ortiz. Additional honorees, attendees and presenters will be announced shortly.
