After ‘Game of Thrones,’ Ed Sheeran will feature in another cult TV show
After he appeared in the long-awaited Game of Thrones premiere — dividing hardcore fans — Ed Sheeran is ready to feature in another cult TV show — The Simpsons.
The singer-turned-actor confirmed on Instagram he will voice a character named Brandon in a musical-themed episode of the animated Fox comedy titled “Haw-Haw Land” — a clear jibe at La La Land.
In the show, which returns for its 29th season on Oct. 1, Sheeran will be involved in a love triangle with Lisa Simpson and Nelson Muntz.
“This year continues to be equally surreal and amazing,” the British singer said. “Watch out for this one, me and Lisa have a whole thing going on x.”
The show’s executive producer Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly the musician is a Simpsons fan who even has a tattoo of Blinky, the three-eyed fish, so naturally he was interested in appearing in the comedy.
“We had a perfect part for him,” Jean explained. “So we said, ‘Oh, great, we’ll have him do this!’ And we recorded him over the phone from England.”
