Ed Sheeran's Next Major Cameo Will Be on The SimpsonsGet Your First Look

Written by  Instyle

Sure, you know “The Shape of You,” but what will be the shape of Ed Sheeran when he guest-stars on The Simpsons?

Oh! Like that.

Following his turn as a singing soldier in the Game of Thrones season 7 premiere Sunday night, the British pop star will be Simpsonized: Sheeran is lending his multi-platinum pipes to the animated Fox comedy for a musical-themed episode, titled “Haw-Haw Land,” in the upcoming 29th season.

EW has learned that he’ll be playing a musician named Brendan (think along the lines of Ryan Gosling’s character in La La Land) — and Lisa is instantly smitten with this slightly older fellow.

“He keeps alternating [between], ‘You’re not that great, but you could be fantastic,’ and she keeps falling for him because of his talent,” executive producer Al Jean tells EW. There’s actually a love triangle forming as well with Nelson, who tries to impress Lisa with his singing talent. How is Nelson’s voice? “Well, you’ll hear,” says Jean with a chuckle. “He sings ‘Save the Last Dance for Me’ with new lyrics, and he kind of bullies those notes.”


This year continues to be equally surreal and amazing.
