For those unfamiliar with the show or it’s plot, character Robin Charles Scherbatsky had teenage stardom as Canadian popstar “Robin Sparkles.” For the fourth (and supposedly final) Robin Sparkles-themed episode, the show’s creators have lined up a slew of appearances by familiar Canadian names. In addition to the Rush bassist/singer, the episode will also feature famous Canadians Alan Thicke, James Van Der Beek, Paul Shaffer, Jason Priestley, Alex Trebek, K. D. Lang, ex-Barenaked Ladies frontman Steven Page, and hockey player Luc Robitaille.
It’s being assumed that Lee will be portraying himself, though that hasn’t been 100% confirmed. Either way, it’s pretty cool that a member of Rush will be on national TV, let alone possibly in the same seen as a former Dawson Creek cast member and host of Jeopardy. Granted, this isn’t Lee’s first encounter with a cast member from the show. The episode featuring Lee’s cameo is set to air on February 4.
