TORONTO - William Shatner, Patrick Stewart and Richard Dreyfuss are among the celeb guests lined up for Fan Expo Canada.

The pop culture event — which runs Aug. 28 to 31 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre — is set to feature photo sessions, workshops, Q&A panels and "cosplay" — or role-playing in costumes.

Others on the guest list include Elijah Wood of "Lord of the Rings" fame, "Spider-Man" creator Stan Lee and the original Batman, Adam West.

The event will also boast Sheryl Lee and Sherilynn Fenn from "Twin Peaks" as well as Robert Englund (a.k.a.) Freddy Krueger, who will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of "A Nightmare on Elm Street."

The "Napoleon Dynamite" cast is also set to attend, as well as Canadian Stephen Amell of "Arrow," Ian Somerhalder of "Vampire Diaries" and "Lost" and YouTube sensation Yaya Han.

Shatner and Stewart, of course, are beloved for their roles in various "Star Trek" incarnations while Dreyfuss starred in the 1975 classic "Jaws."

"This year's celebrity line-up brings the most iconic names in film and TV together under one roof including living legends William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Stan Lee, and Adam West," Fan Expo HQ president Steve Menzie said in a statement.
