Grammy-winning producer Pharrell Williams is reportedly going to turn heads with an upcoming appearance on Fox’s “The Simpsons” cartoon.
According to reports, Skateboard P will appear on the long-running show as an animated version of himself.
EW has learned that the “Happy” rapper/producer/songwriter/fashion designerVoice coach will make a cameo appearance as himself in the Feb. 8 episode of the animated Fox comedy. Titled “Walking Big & Tall,” the installment opens with a plot that’s based on the true story about a Milwaukee TV station in the 1980s hiring a composer to write a city-pride song, and he ended up shopping the same song to other cities.
