Ed Sheeran: Chart-topper and TV Star!
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 singing talents to the animated comedy for a musical episode, titled “Haw-Haw Land,” in the upcoming 29th season. Entertainment Weekly 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.
