Peter Fonda will be the surprise guest judge on the finale of The Independent Film Channel’s Ultimate Film Fanatic, the network said Thursday.

He joins Richard Roundtree, Traci Lords and Jason Mewes.

The final installment of the series will mark the end of an eight-episode film-trivia competition, in which Fonda will join the two finalists for lunch and decide who the Ultimate Film Fanatic is.

The national winner will be IFC’s programming director for one night and serve as the evening’s on-air host, as well as collecting $10,000.

“I’m here to separate the real film fanatics from the everyday film geeks,” Fonda said in a prepared statement. “What’s important to me is seeing how much film really means to these finalists.”

The final episode airs Friday at 10:30 p.m. (EST/PST).
