Get excited for more Blake Shelton, y'all!

The country singer and Voice coach is set to make his acting debut in Adam Sandler's Ridiculous 6, The Wrap reports. The film, the first under Sandler's four-picture deal with Netflix, will also star Taylor Lautner, Rob Schneider, Terry Crews, Luke Wilson, Dan Akroyd, Nick Nolte, Danny Trejo, Will Forte, Steve Buscemi, Vanilla Ice and more.

In Ridiculous 6, a spoof on American westerns like The Magnificent Seven, Shelton will reportedly portray Wyatt Earp, a real gunman in the Old West. Vanilla Ice is set to take on the role of Mark Twain.

Per The Wrap, Sandler "will play a man who grew up as an orphan among an Indian tribe" who reunites with his long-lost biological father, a wealthy bank manager played by Nolte. Lautner, Schneider, Wilson and Crews will play Sandler's character's half-brothers, while Trejo and Forte portray members of a rival gang. Buscemi will be up to his usual tricks as "a local jack-of-all trades," according to the report.

Don't get too worried about Shelton holding his own amongst Sandler and these other Happy Madison regulars. He technically made his acting debut this past weekend as the host and musical guest of Saturday Night Live. While he played himself in a number of skits, he was also spot-on with the characters he did play, like The Bachelor's Chris Soules!

Production for Ridiculous 6 is set to begin in February. Netflix did not respond to E! News' request for comment about the upcoming film.
