Who needs Indiana Jones when you have Rob Riggle?

The actor/ comedian is on a mission to uncover some of the world’s greatest mysteries and legends in his new Discovery Channel series, Rob Riggle: Global Investigator, premiering Sunday, March 8 at 10P.

But what makes Rob qualified for the job? A lot more than you realize. Here are four reasons:

1. He’s a military veteran with more than 20 years of service under his belt

That’s Lieutenant Colonel Riggle to you! Believe it or not, Rob spent 23 years in the United States Marine Corps and United States Marine Corps Reserve, serving tours in Kosovo and Afghanistan.

2. He’s has the brains to back up to the brawn

Rob earned his Bachelor of Arts in theater from the University of Kansas, and eventually a Master of Public Administration from Webster University. The latter must have come in handy when Rob was a public affairs officer in the Marines.

3. His hat game is on point

Indiana Jones has one hat, but Rob Riggle has several.
