Josh Groban's acting career continues to heat up. Following the release of the trailer for his new indie comedy Coffee Town, The Hollywood Reporter now brings us the news that the singer will guest star in an upcoming episode of the cult comedy series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Josh will appear as himself in an episode of the new season of the show, called "The Gang Saves the Day." It's not clear how he fits into the plot, but as The Hollywood Reporter notes, two characters on the show, Dee and Artemis, are massive Josh fans. In season six, they got backstage passes to one of his concerts, but Dee couldn't attend because she was poisoned by Frank, the character played by Danny DeVito .
Josh's appearance on the show may have come as a result of his role in Coffee Town : one of his co-stars in that movie is Sunny star Glenn Howerton. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia returns for its ninth season in September, when it moves from its home on FX to sister network FXX.
In the past, Josh has appeared on The Offic e, Glee and CSI: NY , as well as on Ally McBeal, which is where most people were first introduced to him and his amazing voice.
