Ed Sheeran To Play Lisa’s Love Interest On ‘Simpsons’ ‘La La Land’ Parody

After traveling to Westeros on Game of Thrones this weekend, Ed Sheeran is headed for the town of Springfield where he’ll join The Simpsons in its upcoming 29th season. 

Sheeran will guest star on a musical-themed episode called “Haw-Haw Land,” which Entertainment Weekly reports will be a parody of La La Land with him playing a Ryan Gosling-esque musician named Brendan. Naturally, he’s just Lisa’s type. 

“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 told 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.”

Sheeran will be singing a bit in the episode when he meets Lisa, impressing sax-loving school girl. But it doesn’t sound like everyone will be falling for Brendan. Jean continued to state Milhouse, who has often professed his love for Lisa, will not be so pleased by Brendan showing up in his hometown. 

“When Lisa meets Brendan, Milhouse comes in and he goes, ‘I’ve brought three kinds of waters — cold, warm, and lukewarm,'” said Jean. “Lisa goes, ‘I’m not thirsty anymore,’ and ‘Milhouse goes, ‘Dammit!’ That’s the effect he has on somebody else…. The girls love him but he’s difficult.”

Sheeran is reportedly a longtime Simpsons fan and even has a tattoo of the show’s three-eyed fish, Blinky. 

“We had a perfect part for him,” said Jean. “So we said, ‘Oh, great, we’ll have him do this!’ And we recorded him over the phone from England.”

Pop artist on the rise Phil Crown isn’t necessarily a new face to the music scene; currently residing in Oakland, California, he has been producing behind the scenes for many notable artists over the last few years. Now, Phil is stepping into the spotlight and releasing his debut EP next month; he just dropped the first single off the upcoming ‘Desert Son’ EP, “Pick Up The Phone.”

“Pick Up The Phone” is a dance-infused pop song that captures the struggle a girl has when she’s feeling stuck in a moment of her life, not going anywhere.

Phil Crown explains the lyrics, “Pick Up The Phone is a metaphor to tell her to start making something of herself. Like a wake up call, ‘tell me how you want it’ and I can give it to you, as soon as you’re ready to listen.”

The first track off his debut album is a release in collaboration with Machat Records in association with Hippos and Tanks.
