Ozzy Osbourne just got his next big TV role — and it’s as a cartoon fish whose name is strikingly similar to a fellow controversial rock star.
Rolling Stone reports that Osbourne will voice a character in the Nickelodeon children’s TV show Bubble Guppies. He’ll play Sid Fishy, a “rock and roll fish who just loves being rotten.”
Sound familiar? Though the likeness is a bit different, Sid Fishy seems to bear some similarity to Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious — with perhaps some Johnny Rotten thrown in there too.
Added Osbourne in a statement to the website: “I’ve always smelled a bit fishy,” he said, adding that he did the show because his granddaughter Pearl, 2, is a big fan of the show and channel.
