Ed Sheeran Lands Acting Role on FX's 'Bastard Executioner'

Ed Sheeran has landed his first acting job – a recurring role on the upcoming FX drama series The Bastard Executioner.

The new show, which was created by Sons of Anarchy‘s Kurt Sutter, is billed as “a blood-soaked medieval epic that tells the story of a 14th century warrior whose life is forever changed when a divine messenger beseeches him to lay down his sword and lead the life of a journeyman executioner,” according to THR.

Ed is set to play “Sir Cormac, an ambitious and deadly protégé of a high-ranking church elder.”

Also starring in the new series are Stephen Moyer and Katey Sagal. It is expected to premiere this fall!

Ed Sheeran Clarifies His Taylor Swift/Nicki Minaj Comments: 'I Definitely Said It Wrong'

Ed Sheeran has taken to Twitter to clarify the comments he made concerning the rift between Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj.

“that’s taken out of context and not what I was saying was redundant at all” Ed, 24, wrote to Buzzfeed UK after they published an article with his comments that Nicki‘s argument was “redundant.”

“I was making a point about body image and not race, whilst sticking up for a mate, I definitely said it wrong though, apologies,” Ed added.

Later, after Taylor apologized, a fan tweeted at Ed, “Look @edsheeran, your friend is admitting she was wrong. Time for you to admit you missed the point,” to which Ed responded, “I’m very aware that I missed the point.”

Nicki fully explained what her VMA tweets meant on her Instagram.

Ed Sheeran Defends Taylor Swift's VMA Tweets: She's 'Done Nothing Wrong'

Ed Sheeran has spoken out about his views on the Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj back-and-forth regarding 2015 MTV VMA nominations.

“I think everyone knows that Taylor has done nothing wrong in that situation,” the 24-year-old entertainer told The Daily Telegraph of his former tour-mate.

“She didn’t nominate herself for the awards. It’s not her fault. She just made some good videos and people think they’re good,” Ed continued. “I think the Minaj point is a bit redundant, her point is that you have to be skinny and white to get a Video of the Year nomination, but Beyonce’s ‘7/11′ is in there, and that is celebrating the female figure in every form.”

Katy Perry also got in on the action when she called out Taylor in a tweet citing hypocrisy.
