Bob Seger once sang about feeling like a number.



On Sunday, March 28, it will be more like a cartoon.



The Oakland County-based Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will appear as himself in this weekend's "Uncut Femmes" episode of "The Simpsons," airing at 8 p.m. on Fox (WJBK, Channel 2). The plot line and context for Seger's appearance have not yet been revealed although the show synopsis says that, "We learn that Chief Wiggum’s wife is more than she seems. Meanwhile, Marge takes part in a jewel heist."



Seger, 75, joins a long list of musicians who have appeared as themselves in the long-running show, which is in the midst of its 32nd season and has won 34 Primetime Emmy Awards. Among those on the list are Tony Bennett, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Sting, Spinal Tap, Tom Jones, Aerosmith, Dolly Parton, Peter Frampton, U2 and many more.



Seger has been laying low since the conclusion of his farewell tour in November of 2019, surfacing only to make some public comments about Silver Bullet Band saxophonist Alto Reed's death in December and to help Detroit rock station WRIF-FM celebrate its 50th anniversary during February. His last album, "I Knew You When," came out during 2017.
