Executive producer Brad Pitt makes his Lego Masters debut

Brad Pitt, an executive producer of Fox’s Lego Masters since its inception, has yet to make an appearance on the show — until now.

In the season 3 trailer of the brick-building competition series, debuting exclusively on EW, Pitt makes his debut — as a minifig, naturally.

In the clip, the minifig (that’s short for minifigure — Lego speak for the little non-brick Lego characters) representing host Will Arnett walks up to Pitt and asks him what he’s doing here. Pitt’s minifig points out he’s the executive producer, and whips out his Lego phone to tell someone presumably involved in the production to “make it better.”

The trailer, which was just shown at the Lego panel at San Diego Comic-Con, includes Chris Pratt and former NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon also making their debut on the Lego Masters stage.

Season 3 of Lego Masters debuts on Fox Sept. 21, immediately after the season 8 premiere of The Masked Singer, from 9-10 p.m. ET/PT.
