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.

Movie Stars Invade TV: A Look at Pilot Season 2010

Sissy SpacekTelevision fans, look out: Oscar-winning actors are taking over! And not just for a special cameo or a three-episode guest star stint, either. Movie stars are coming to TV in a big way ... as series regulars.

Why? Well, for a few reasons. Portraying a character on a weekly basis can present a new challenge to these veteran silver screen stars, but let's not forget that young Hollywood actors in tween-targeted films are dominating the box office. These Oscar-winning actors aren't giving up films, but their star power and names alone are big enough to attract an audience to a TV show.

Many Oscar-winners and nominees have left their mark on both screens -- just look at Sally Field. She's won an Oscar for 'Norma Rae' and Emmys for 'Sybil,' 'ER' and 'Brothers & Sisters.'

Maybe the Oscars of these latest stars got lonely on the mantle and the next logical thought would be: Why not add an Emmy sister?

Check out the list of actors who are coming to TV -- including Sissy Spacek and Dustin Hoffman -- after the jump.
