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.
