The Simpsons are back from the Christmas break and they’ve brought Ed Sheeran.
The singer will make a guest appearance on The Simpsons where he’ll play as a love interest to Lisa. The episode titled Haw Haw Land (a riff on La La Land) will see Sheeran play Brendan, a brilliant jazz pianist.
On playing the role Sheeran had this to say:
“It’s always been kind of a pipe dream of mine to be in a Simpsons episode, so it’s quite cool. On my tour bus, every day is Simpsons night. I will finish a gig, we’ll get a bottle of wine, and we’ll all go in the back and watch as many episodes as we can watch until we fall asleep.”
The Simpsons isn’t his first step into acting, having already appeared in Game of Thrones, Home and Away, and Bridget Jones’s Baby.
