It's a match!

Alec Baldwin has signed on to host ABC's new version of the iconic game show Match Game, PEOPLE can confirm.

"I am beyond grateful to ABC and FremantleMedia for the chance to host a limited series of the legendary Match Game," Baldwin says in a statement released Monday.

Baldwin, 58, will be donating his fee for hosting the game show to he and his wife's non-profit, the Hilaria & Alec Baldwin Foundation.



"Hilaria and I are thrilled to donate this fee to arts-related charities. And we look forward to having a lot of fun," says the former 30 Rock star.

Baldwin will be in good company on ABC's upcoming Sunday Fun & Games Night block of programming, which will include Steve Harvey hosting Family Feud and Michael Strahan hosting $100,000 Pyramid.

ABC's Sunday Fun & Games Night programming will kick off June 26.
