He’s one of the most underrated actors of his generation, so it’s nice to see that Patton Oswalt has been tapped to host the 29th Annual Film Independent Spirit Awards.

The shindig is slated to take place under a tent in Santa Monica on March 1st, 2014, and the “Secret Life of Walter Mitty” star will no doubt add his own special flair to the proceedings.

According to Spirit Awards executive producer Diana Zahn-Storey, Oswalt is her top choice for the event.

She told press, “Patton is an incredibly talented writer, actor and comedian whose irreverent humor is the perfect fit for our show.”
