D'oh Canada on Simpsons

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be portrayed in a Canada-themed episode of “The Simpsons” this weekend.

Toronto reporter Lucas Meyer will voice the part in the episode titled D’oh Canada this Sunday.

Meyer announced his role on Twitter.

“I’m a little bit overwhelmed right now … it’s been a little bit of a whirlwind,” he told CTV News. “It’s just so much fun, you know?”

The episode follows the Simpsons on a trip to Niagara Falls, and Lisa is mistakenly given political asylum in Canada, according to the episode’s synopsis.

An offer for the cameo came last fall after a casting director praised Meyer's Trudeau impression. 

Meyer recently covered Trudeau for news stories on the SNC-Lavalin affair.

He's a gifted impressionist who can also mimic Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi, Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, Christopher Walken and others.

“It’s still kind of surreal – especially as someone who grew up on the show,” said Meyer.
