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 .
