The rumor mill was turning last month with people talking about the possibility of Sir Elton John making an appearance in the sequel to 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, and now, the man himself has confirmed it’s true.

John took to Instagram to make the announcement, playing off of his famed song “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting” with the below post:

It’s been a long time since Tommy….. #Kingsman

He’s portrayed himself in earlier roles, like in 1997’s Spice World and the TV show The Nanny (in the same year).

It’s yet to be confirmed what indeed he’s signed up for, but it would be a bit of fun to see him take on a different persona … maybe a baddie?

The next installment of Kingsman is entitled Kingsman: The Golden Circle, with Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, and Mark Strong making their return. We can also look forward to Channing Tatum stepping up for the next installment and seeing other familiar faces like Julianne Moore and Halle Berry.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is set to hit U.S. theaters on June 16, 2017.

In the meantime, we can enjoy Ben Stiller teaching John “how to blue steel” on The Graham Norton Show (not that he needed much prodding):

What do you think of the casting so far?
