It has been a good week for two Pacific Palisades Honorary Mayors, Billy Crystal and Eugene Levy.

A few days ago, it was announced that Crystal is one of five entertainers who will receive a Kennedy Center Honor on December 3.

Now, current honorary mayor Levy is among celebrities who will be honored with stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Levy is one of the nine selected in the television category.

Although Levy is known for the American Pie movies and several films by Palisadian Christopher Guest, it’s Schitt’s Creek, and the early SCTV sketch show that landed him in the television category.

Radio personality Ellen K is chair of the selection committee made up of Walk-of-Famers like herself. She said they hand-pick “a group of honorees each year that represent various genres of the entertainment world.

“The Committee did an amazing job choosing these very talented people. We can’t wait to see each honoree’s reaction as they realize that they are becoming a part of Hollywood’s history with the unveiling of their star on the world’s most famous walkway!” K said.

In addition to television, additional honorees come from the categories of Motion Pictures, Recording Live Theatre/Live Performance, Radio and Sports Entertainment.

Former Palisadian Kevin Fiege is getting his star in the motion picture category. As president of Marvel Studios, he’s been in charge of all of those recent films based on Marvel’s comic book heroes.

Dates have not been scheduled for the ceremonies. The stars have two years from the date of selection to schedule their ceremony before it expires.

Upcoming star ceremonies are usually announced on the official website (www.walkoffame.com) 10 days prior to dedication.
