One of America’s favorite billionaires will meet one of its most hated in the upcoming season of The Simpsons:

The Simpsons panel was unusually light on guest-star news, with exec producer Al Jean making only one announcement: Elon Musk will play himself in an upcoming episode in which Mr. Burns loses all of his money to the Tesla/SpaceX tycoon.

Mr. Burns is, of course, C. Montgomery Burns, the elderly and evil owner of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant who employs Homer Simpson. Musk owns two companies, Solar City and Tesla, that are focused on clean energy.

This is the 26th season of the animated show, which already has 552 episodes under its belt.
