Ottawa, get ready -- Captain Kirk is headed to your city. It was just announced that William Shatner, the Canadian icon and current star of '$#*! My Dad Says,' will host this year's Genie Awards gala.

"I'm so looking forward to coming to Canada as the host of the 31st annual Genie Awards and seeing a lot of my old friends," said Shatner in a release issued today. "Unfortunately, most of them are dead of old age."

The annual event celebrates the Canadian film industry and will take place at the National Arts Centre in Canada's capital.

Working alongside Shatner will be 'Barney's Version' and 'Twilight' star Rachelle Lefevre who will act as 'the voice' of the event. Special musical performances and celebrity presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.

Catch the Genie Awards on March 10 at 8PM on CBC.
