'Castle' star to officiate at Feb. 17 ceremony

The Writers Guild of America West has selected Nathan Fillion to host its awards show on Feb. 17 at L.A. Live.

Fillion is best known for his role on the series “Castle” and will star in Joss Whedon’s film adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing,” which will be released June 7. He will also co-star as Hermes in “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.”

“When I first accepted the honor of hosting the Writers Guild Awards, I was confused and actually thought I was receiving one,” Fillion said. “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.”
