Sting will make an appearance on Michael J. Fox's new NBC comedy later this year. The musician has announced he will guest star as himself in a holiday-themed episode of The Michael J. Fox Show. According to TVLine.com, he'll film the appearance this week.
How his cameo will factor into the episode remains to be seen. However, Fox's onscreen wife, Betsy Brandt, told TVLine.com recently that the main story line in the episode will revolve around their characters attempting to "out-gift" each other.
An airdate for the episode has not been announced. The Michael J. Fox Show airs Thursday nights.
This won't be the first time Sting has played himself in a TV comedy. He also guest starred in an episode of Ricky Gervais' most recent HBO series, Life's Too Short.
