From 'Game of Thrones' soldier, Ed Sheeran gets 'Simpsonized'
MANILA, Philippines – It seems Ed Sheeran is on a roll with his TV guestings. After appearing as a Lannister soldier on Game of Thrones season 7, Ed is set to appear on The Simpsons.
According to a report from Entertainment Weekly, the "Shape of You" singer will guest star on the episode called "Ha-Haw Land," where his character will be called Brendan and Lisa will develop a crush on him.
Producer Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly: "He keeps alternating [between], ‘You’re not that great, but you could be fantastic,’ and she keeps falling for him because of his talent.”
Of course, Milhouse, the guy who has a crush on Lisa is not happy with this development.
Ed's appearance was made possible when another one of the show's producers, Mike Scully, found out he was a fan of the show. Al said that they had a perfect role for him.
“So we said, ‘Oh, great, we’ll have him do this!’ And we recorded him over the phone from England,” Al said.
On Instagram, Ed posted" "This year continues to be equally surreal and amazing. Watch out for this one, me and Lisa have a whole thing going on."
The 29th season of The Simpsons premieres in October. – Rappler.com
