From ET: Nick Offerman to Guest Star on 'The Muppets' -- And He's Taking Fozzie's Job!
From Pawnee to Up Late With Miss Piggy, Nick Offerman is coming to The Muppets!
ET exclusively reveals that the Parks and Recreation fan favorite will guest star on next Tuesday's all-new episode of the hit ABC comedy. Offerman joins episode three along with previously announced A-listers, Liam Hemsworth and Christina Applegate.
"There are a lot of fun people who are coming to play and it's been really fun," The Muppets executive producer Bill Prady spilled to ET. The showrunner added that Offerman's appearance was absolutely "hysterical" to film.
"Fozzie takes a leave of absence from his job as the announcer on Up Late With Miss Piggy," Prady explained. "So they get Nick Offerman to fill in, and he was a lot of fun."
We're currently crossing our fingers that Offerman will channel his late-night alter ego, Duke Silver, to announce Miss Piggy's guests -- and keep his love of bacon to himself.
As for Hemsworth's role in the Muppets mayhem? The Hunger Games star is graciously going to help Gonzo out of a tricky situation with his online dating profile.
"The story is that Gonzo is doing online dating and he uses Liam's picture," Prady chuckled. "And the problem is he's got this woman coming to meet him and she's looking for somebody that looks like Liam."
