Despite the haters who were less than thrilled with his cameo on Game of Thrones, Ed Sheeran is set for another cameo. This time in the animated fashion of The Simpsons. The episode will air this coming Sunday, January 7th with Sheeran playing Brendan, a jazz pianist and love interest for Lisa who she meets at a STEM conference. Sheeran’s character will be caught in a love triangle between Lisa and resident town bully Nelson Muntz.
Sheeran previously expressed interest in a guest role on “The Simpsons” which he appears to be a big fan of given the fact he’s got a tattoo of Blinky, the three-eyed fish who occasionally appears on the show. He even took to his personal Instagram to voice his excitement.
