Justin Trudeau is following in the footsteps of prime ministers before him.
Comedian Brent Butt shared the news on Sunday that Trudeau had recorded a voice cameo for “Corner Gas Animated”.
As Butt pointed out, the Canadian PM’s appearance marks tradition, with both Stephen Harper and Paul Martin previously popping up on the original live-action incarnation of the sitcom.
It sounds like Trudeau’s appearance will be a quick one, as Butt said the entire recording — done in the PM’s office — only took about 15 minutes.
“Corner Gas Animated” debuted in April 2018; its second season is set to premiere spring 2019 with 11 new episodes.
Along with Trudeau, the new season will feature guest appearances by Michael J. Fox, Russell Peters, Jann Arden, Chris Hadfield and “Epic Mealtime” star Harley Morenstein.
The original “Corner Gas” series ran from 2004 to 2009, with “Corner Gas: The Movie” following in 2014.
