Castle star Nathan Fillion has been tapped to host the 2013 Writers Guild Awards set for February 17, 2013. The star-studded event will be held at the Marriot Los Angeles L.A. Live in downtown LA.
Stated Fillion: “When I first accepted the honor of hosting the Writers Guild Awards, I was confused and actually thought I was receiving one. Since I play a writer on TV, I felt perhaps someone was under the impression I deserved an award and I wasn’t about to correct them. However, now I’m in the perfect position to present myself with whichever award I choose. Who’s going to know? At the very least, I can network with the most talented writers in the business in preparation for my next round of unemployment. It’s a win/win.”
“We think Nathan’s an extraordinary choice to host the 2013 Writers Guild Awards,” said Executive Producer Cort Casady. “Not only does he play a writer brilliantly on Castle, but also, in addition to acting, he sings, dances, is a popular voice talent, and has a great gift for comedy. And with over 1.5 million Twitter followers, Nathan brings a smart, enthusiastic audience to our celebration of writing.”
Fillion is currently seen on television in the fifth season of Castle and has a starring role in Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing set for theatrical release on June 7, 2013. He’ll also be seen co-starring as ‘Hermes’ in Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters hitting theaters on August 16, 2013.
