The Black Keys are about to tighten up their acting resumes: Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney will guest-star in an episode of Comedy Central’s Workaholics, EW has learned. In the episode that will likely air in early summer, Adam (Adam DeVine), Ders (Anders Holm) and Blake (Blake Anderson) sue their co-worker Montez (Erik Griffin) after he sells them a defective hovercraft. While in small claims court, the guys cross paths with two dirtbags, played by Auerbach and Carney, who are waiting for their own case to be heard. It should be noted that the duo will be sporting oddly long ponytails. 

How did this rock-and-raucous union materialize? Turns out, Auerbach and Carney are fans of the slacker comedy and became friends with Devine, who just happens to count the Black Keys among his favorite bands. Workaholics also featured the Black Keys’ “Lonely Boy”  in an episode last fall.  Season 3 kicks off May 29.
