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.
