Longtime “Today” show weatherman, Al Roker, is taking his act to the stage.

The NBC morning show announced today that Roker will take on a new gig and hit the Broadway stage in the Sara Bareilles’ musical, Waitress.

Al is slated to join the cast of the Broadway show for six weeks starting on 5 October. His “Today” colleagues revealed that, in addition, to making his Broadway acting debut, the morning show host will also sing, playing Joe in the show.

“Real people will pay real money to watch me!” he joked with his co-hosts on Wednesday morning. “As a singer! I’m a terrific weatherman.”
