Looks like Dave Chappelle is really, officially over his self-imposed exile from Hollywood.

On the heels of his not-universally-loved Netflix comedy specials and appearance on Saturday Night Live, the 43-year-old comedian has officially joined the cast of the the fourth remake of A Star is Born.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Chappelle will join Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in the film and that the comedian will play Cooper’s best friend, a character named Noodles.

The film is Cooper’s directorial debut, and is currently in production, with pictures from the set coming out on almost daily on social media.

A Star is Born is due in theaters Sept. 28 next year.
