We’ve got some cool news, Castle fans! Nathan Fillion, star of the hit ABC show, is set to host the west coast show for the 2013 Writers Guild Awards (via The Hollywood Reporter). The awards show will be held in on Feb. 17, 2013 at L.A. Live, as announced on Monday.

When he was extended the honor of hosting the show, Nathan admitted he was a bit confused at first, thinking he’d received an award himself.

"Since I play a writer on TV,” he said in a statement, “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 wish our favorite crime novelist the best of luck — not like he needs it!
