Season 29 News: New details on Haw-Haw Land have been released!

After revealing that Ed Sheeran will join the cast for Season 29 in the episode Haw-Haw Land, new informations for the episode, and Ed’s role, have been revealed!

In an interview wih EW, it has been announced that Ed will play the role of the musician Brendan.

Al Jean said: “He keeps alternating [between], ‘You’re not that great, but you could be fantastic,’ and she keeps falling for him because of his talent”. Nelson is also trying to impress Lisa with his singing and Al Jean is asked how is Nelson’s voice: “Well, you’ll hear. He sings ‘Save the Last Dance for Me’ with new lyrics, and he kind of bullies those notes.”

Milhouse is not fond of this connection with Lisa, Al Jean says: “When Lisa meets Brendan, Milhouse comes in and he goes, ‘I’ve brought three kinds of waters — cold, warm, and lukewarm’. 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.”

Producer Mike Scully brought Sheeran to the show, having heard he was interested in appearing in it, Al Jean explains: “We had a perfect part for him. So we said, ‘Oh, great, we’ll have him do this!’ And we recorded him over the phone from England.”

EW also adds that the episode is scheduled to air in late fall.

In the press release, Jeff Idelson, president of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, said: “In Cooperstown, we salute baseball’s greatest contributors, preserve its vast history and salute the cultural side of the sport. We are honored to pay tribute to the 25th anniversary of ‘Homer at the Bat’, “‘The Simpsons’ has left an impressive imprint on our culture as the longest-running American sitcom, and ‘Homer at the Bat’ remains as popular today as when the episode aired in 1992. Baseball is recognized as our National Pastime due to its wide intersection with American culture over the last two centuries, evident in literature, theater, language, art, music, film and television. ‘The Simpsons’ is a perfect example of that connection to America.”
