ABC’s The Muppets is adding another big guest star.

The Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth is coming to the new fall comedy series, EW has learned exclusively.

Hemsworth will play himself on the show—a more grown-up take on the beloved Muppet characters that goes “behind the scenes” as Kermit, Miss Piggy and the rest stage a new prime-time series.

We can only hope Hemsworth coming on board means some sort of Muppet parody of The Hunger Games. See the star's Instagram with Miss Piggy here:

Spent Friday with the most beautiful girl in the world. Kermit, #SorryNotSorry. #TheMuppets #misspiggy
