Self-described brony William Shatner will appear in ‘My Little Pony’

William Shatner is going to be on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

At this point, nothing would surprise us about Shatner’s career choices. He’s spent the last few years gleefully participating in TV fandoms on Twitter, and at one point he even described himself as a brony. (His favorite pony is Rainbow Dash, in case you’re wondering.)

With that in mind, why not leverage his geeky star power to land a role on the show?

In response to a question from a fan, he confirmed that he’s already recorded a role for My Little Pony‘s seventh season this year. A brony’s dream come true.
