Justin Trudeau to make ‘Cor­ner Gas An­i­mated’ cameo, Butt tweets

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

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.
