Michigan Superstar Bob Seger to Appear on ‘The Simpsons’
Michigan's own Bob Seger will visit Springfield this weekend, appearing in an all-new episode of 'The Simpsons' this Sunday night. (That sounded like a promo, didn't it?)
The Rock-N-Roll Hall of Famer will play himself in the episode, which premiers Sunday night at 8 pm on the Fox TV network. The long-running comedy airs locally on Fox 66, WSMH-TV.
This week's episode is titled 'Uncut Femmes,' a hat tip to Adam Sandler's 2019 film 'Uncut Gems.'
According to the Detroit News, Marge Simpson will be involved in some sort of jewel heist. Seger's involvement in the episode is not clear, but in the clip below, you'll see the rockstar in a setting that appears to be a backstage event, attended by Homer Simpson and Springfield Police Chief Wiffum.
"Rock and roll never forgets," Seger says, quoting the title of his 70s hit. Homer has a puzzled look on his face as he exclaims to Chief Wiggum, "Were we just Seger shamed?"
According to the Detroit News, Bob Seger is a big fan of the Simpsons. A member of his management team says Seger recorded his voice parts for the show last fall. Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally also make guest appearances on this week's show.
