In very “weird” casting news, “Weird Al” Yankovic will be appearing in the reboot of Reno 911…as Ted Nugent.

Yankovic shared via Twitter, “Finally, some good news in the world – after an 11-year hiatus, one of the funniest shows of all time is BACK! The new season of Reno 911 begins streaming on @Quibi on May 4. (Oh, and I show up at one point as Ted Nugent.)” The photos below show Yankovic in some pretty convincing Nuge cosplay and someone else is clearly dressed as Kid Rock, so who knows what that plot of that Reno 911 episode, but it ought to be interesting at the very least.

Quibi is currently offering a free 90-day trial on its service. To learn more, head over to A trailer for the Reno 911 reboot is below.
