The Idol isn’t the first time that The Weeknd has acted on TV or film. The Grammy-winning singer appeared in the acclaimed 2019 film Uncut Gems as a fictionalized version of himself, and wrote and starred in a 2020 episode of TBS’ animated series American Dad.

Singer Troye Sivan, Suzanna Son, Moses Sumney, Jane Adams, Dan Levy, Da’vine Joy Randolph, and Hank Azaria also star in the series, along with Korean rapper/singer Jennie of the girl group Blackpink.
