Bradley Cooper's remake of A Star Is Born is currently underway, and he just got a big and unexpected name to join the cast — Dave Chappelle.

A Star Is Born is about an unknown country singer named Ally, played by Lady Gaga, who lands her big break. Cooper is both directing and starring as Jackson Maine, a country singer whose own star has faded until he discovers Ally.

So, who is Chappelle playing in the remake? He'll be portraying a character named Noodles, a friend of Cooper's character. The two go way back and have a long history of playing in clubs together.

Cooper's A Star Is Born is the third remake of the 1937 movie starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March. The first, released in 1954, starred Judy Garland and James Mason. One wasn't enough, apparently, so Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson gave the second remake a shot in 1976. Fans can now look forward to Gaga and Cooper's iteration of the timeless tale of musical stardom. 

The movie began filming at Coachella in April and is scheduled to hit theaters on Sept. 28, 2018.
