no title

Watch out, Kermit! Joseph Gordon-Levitt is coming for your pig!

The Walk star will be playing himself on an upcoming episode of The Muppets, and will find himself involved in a poker night with Scooter, Pepe, and the "cool" clique of the muppet gang!

JGL is no stranger to Jim Henson's creations — he's set to star and produce in the upcoming Fraggle Rock movie!

But the actor isn't the only star who will grace his presence on the December 1 episode of the ABC comedy!

Dave Grohl will also play himself in the episode, and will be challenging Animal to an old school drum off!

This won't be the first Muppet experience for The Foo Fighters frontman either. He appeared in the 2011 feature film as Animool — Animal's counterpart in the knock off Moopets!

Titled "Going, Going, Gonzo," the episode will also mark the Muppets revival debut of the Great Gonzo — Gonzo's adrenaline seeking alter ego!

Are YOU watching The Muppets Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC?

So so sad! Our thoughts are with her family.
