Ed Sheeran to Appear on Upcoming ‘Simpsons’ Episode
”Shape of You” singer's TV tour continues after recent “Game of Thrones” cameoJuly 18, 2017
Just a day after watching his “Game of Thrones” debut, the world learned singer, songwriter, and repeat Stern Show guest Ed Sheeran has lined up another TV cameo on “The Simpsons.”
He’s lending his voice and likeness to Fox’s long-running animated series for a “La La Land” parodying Season 29 episode called “Haw-Haw Land,” according to reports, which involves his character Brendan competing for Lisa Simpson’s affections by flaunting his musical talents.
While Ed’s turn as a singing soldier on Sunday’s “Game of Thrones” premiere involved costumes and filming on-location, his “Simpsons” performance may have been considerably less taxing. “[W]e recorded him over the phone from England,” executive producer Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly, which along with the interview published an image of Ed’s cartoon character:

“The Simpsons” returns Sunday, Oct. 1 with Ed’s episode scheduled to air later in the fall.
