Countless celebrities have made cameo appearances on ‘The Simpsons‘ over the past 25 seasons. We can now add Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford to the list.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Halford will make his ‘Simpsons’ guest spot during a particularly guest-heavy episode scheduled to air in January 2014. Titled ‘Steal This Episode,’ it finds Homer Simpson voicing his displeasure with movie theaters by illegally downloading films and setting up a neighborhood screen in his back yard. “Even though Homer is stealing, he’s doing it for the community, he’s doing it out of the goodness of his heart,” explained the show’s executive producer, Matt Selman.

Homer’s new hobby puts him at odds with an FBI agent (voiced by Will Arnett) and sets in motion a chain of events that includes Halford singing the Judas Priest classic ‘Breaking the Law.’ Other celebrities lending their voices to the episode include Judd Apatow (who also contributed the script for one of this season’s shows), Leslie Mann, Channing Tatum and returning ‘Simpsons’ guests Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen.

Halford’s ‘Simpsons’ cameo serves as part of a fun-sounding start to 2014 for Judas Priest. Shortly after the episode airs, he and a few of his fellow bandmates are scheduled to take part in the rock ‘n’ roll fantasy camp ‘Hell Bent for Vegas.’
