The new series The Muppets has seen a long list of guest stars since its debut on ABC in September. And now, we can add actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt and musician Dave Grohl to the list, reports Variety.
Both celebrities will appear on the same episode, scheduled to air on December 1, entitled Going, Going, Gonzo. In it, Gordon-Levitt, who has a musical side to him as well, will sing a duet with Miss Piggy on Up Late with Miss Piggy, the fictional talk show on which the series revolves. Later, he’ll join others for a game of poker. Grohl, meanwhile, will challenge Animal to a drum-off.
Grohl, of course, is known as the frontman for the rock band, Foo Fighters. But he first rose to fame as the drummer for ‘90s grunge band Nirvana. He is no stranger to The Muppets, having appeared in the 2011 film, coincidentally also playing the drums as Animal’s replacement.
