Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford will appear in an episode of hit animated series The Simpsons.

The rocker has been animated for the cult cartoon series and will appear in an episode alongside director Judd Apatow, Channing Tatum, Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen, reported Entertainment Weekly.

According to The Simpsons executive producer Matt Selman, Halford performs a parody of Judas Priest hit Breaking the Law to highlight cartoon stars Bart and Homer Simpson's pirated movie viewing operation.

"Even though Homer is stealing, he's doing it for the community, he's doing it out of the goodness of his heart," Selman said.

Meanwhile, a lost script Apatow wrote over 20 years ago, will air as an episode of The Simpsons later this year.

The filmmaker recalls the episode revolves around a hypnotism show that leaves Homer Simpson believing he is 10 years old.
