Dave Grohl to Drum Battle Animal in The Muppets Show

The return of Animool

Foo Fighters frontman is set to make his return to The Muppets on an upcoming episode “Going Going Gonzo,” for a drum battle with Animal. The Muppets have since rebooted as a TV show, following the refreshed interest of after their 2011 film. Dave Grohl had a short cameo in the film, backing up Fozzie Bear’s band “Animool”.

Grohl, who began his career as a drummer playing in Nirvana, later playing in Queens of the Stoneage later and Them Crooked Vultures, has made several TV and film appearances as a musician such as The Pick of Destiny in 2006. Though he played the devil in that film so it’s probably safe to say his role in The Muppets will be a little more PG.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt will also star in the episode as himself, which airs at 8:00 PM on ABC December 1st.
