The Weeknd is living up to his "Starboy" nickname. 🔥

Growing his Hollywood résumé by the week, The Weeknd recently did the voices for three characters in a special 200th "Endgame" episode of Adult Swim's Robot Chicken.

Sounding like you've never heard him before, Abel played three diverse characters: an auctioneer for a human-dinosaur, a SWAT team member who raids said auction and Madea – yes, Tyler Perry's Madea – in prison.

"And up next at the little dinosaur auction: the least f***able dinosaur you've ever seen," he says with a chuckle at the beginning of the skit.

Adding to the special guests behind Tuesday night's 10th season finale was director David Lynch, who's known for his work on mystery movies like Mulholland Drive and the TV series Twin Peaks.

You may remember that The Weeknd first hopped behind the mic for a cartoon when he played himself in American Dad and performed an original song about being a virgin.

In fact, a writer for that show, Joel Hurwit, was the person who introduced Abel to Robot Chicken creator Seth Green. 

“I totally geeked out," The Weeknd said in a May interview with Variety. He also talked about creating "different Weeknds in alternate universes" in the future.

“I told Joel I loved doing voices and wished I could have challenged myself more in that department, so he took me to the Robot Chicken studio, where Seth Green was waiting for me,” he said. “I totally geeked out and he actually let me do multiple voices on an episode coming out soon. The cartoon nerd in me jumped out that day.”
