Pete Davidson cannot believe he is portraying Joey Ramone in a biopic.

Davidson, 27, will portray the punk godfather in an upcoming movie. Global’s “Saturday Night Live” star has a loveable penchant for breaking character on the sketch comedy series, and explained how seriously he is taking the opportunity to lose himself in Ramone’s aura.

“I’m still in shock that they’re letting me do this,” Davidson told Billboard. “I’m not like Kate [McKinnon] or Keenan [Thompson] or Chris [Redd] who can do characters and they can disappear into s**t… Unfortunately for me when I’m out there it’s like, ‘Oh, that’s Pete.'”

“I’m about to start music lessons and voice lessons and all this other s**t and it’s honestly a dream come true that they’re giving Pete a shot,” he says, referring to himself in the third person. “Hopefully I do it justice and I hope I don’t let anybody down.”
