William Shatner will host BBC current affairs quiz Have I Got News For You, the Guardian newspaper is reporting.
The actor, famous for playing Captain James T Kirk, will join regular stars Ian Hislop and Paul Merton and guests Andy Hamilton and Charlie Brooker on the show on Friday 25 May.
Commenting on his forthcoming appearance, the 81-year-old said: “English sense of humour is different from American sense of humour. Luckily, I’m Canadian.”
Other stars to host the programme include Benedict Cumberbatch.
