OT­TAWA — Justin Trudeau will fol­low in the foot­steps of two pre­vi­ous prime min­is­ters by ap­pear­ing in an episode of Cor­ner Gas.

The show’s Face­book page said on Satur­day that Trudeau will play him­self on an episode of Cor­ner Gas An­i­mated when its sec­ond sea­son de­buts this spring on The Com­edy Net­work.

A pho­to­graph ac­com­pa­nies the post, show­ing Trudeau in his Par­lia­ment Hill of­fice with sound tech­ni­cians and Cor­ner Gas star and cre­ator Brent Butt.

For­mer prime min­is­ters Paul Martin and Stephen Harper also made brief ap­pear­ances on the live-ac­tion ver­sion of Cor­ner Gas,”which ran for six sea­sons be­tween 2004 and 2009.

Set in the fic­tional Saskatchewan town of Dog River, Cor­ner Gas was the No. 1 sit­com in Canada through­out its en­tire run.

Other high-pro­file cameos dur­ing the show’s live-ac­tion run in­cluded for­mer Gov. Gen. Adri­enne Clark­son, hockey greats Dar­ryl Sit­tler and Travis Moen, Olympic speed­skater Cindy Klassen, and mu­si­cians Colin James, Jann Ar­den and the Trag­i­cally Hip.

Trudeau tweeted about his cameo on Satur­day.

“Home af­ter a great cou­ple of days in Saskatchewan. But I’ll be at @cor­ner­gas in Dog River very soon. Stay tuned,” Trudeau wrote.
