This news is so AH-Mazing, we want to BLANK!

Alec Baldwin has played many roles over his career, but the 30 Rock alum is taking on a completely new role — as game show host!

This summer, the actor will be hosting ABC‘s revival of Match Game — the 1970s comedy panel show where contestants have to match the answers of six celebrities in a game of fill-in-the-blank!

The hour-long episodes will air during the network’s Sunday Fun & Games programming block starting June 26 — along with the Steve Harvey hosted Celebrity Family Feud and The 100,000 Pyramid.

Baldwin will serve as executive producer of the 10-episode series, and will be donating his appearance fee to the Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation!

On Thursday, the 58-year-old announced the news on Twitter, sharing:

Looks like he’s already getting in the zone!

The Match Game revival will have a strong comedic element to it, just like its original run — which featured regular panelists like Brett Somers, Richard Dawson, Betty White, and Charles Nelson Reilly (whom Baldwin famously imitated on Saturday Night Live)!

And since Baldwin has some funny friends, we have our hopes set high that the limited series will deliver some major laughs! (We’re looking at you, Tina Fey!)

Catch the all new Match Game on June 26 at 10 p.m. EST on ABC!
