Ted Lasso actor Brett Goldstein made a cameo on the iconic series Sesame Street in which he taught Cookie Monster and Tamir a lesson on the F-word – fairness.
The 41-year-old actor, who plays the role of potty mouth soccer player Roy Kent on the Apple TV+ show, was seen in a kitchen setting alongside the characters as they finished baking cookies in a clip posted on Entertainment Weekly Thursday.
‘Hello there, Tamir and I are baking cookies,’ to which Tamir said, ‘Oh, I had no idea you like to bake.’

The English entertainer responded, ‘I do, it does it relaxes me – we’re also here to tell you the word of the day.’
Tamir said, ‘Today’s word begins with the letter F,’ to which Goldstein, alluding to his Ted Lasso character, said, ‘Oh, I love the letter F.’
After Tamir revealed that the F-word in question was fairness, Goldstein said, ‘Fairness is when each of us gets what we need.’
At that point, the iconic character Cookie Monster popped up into the frame and said, ‘Me need cookie please,’ as he looked at Goldstein holding a plate of cookies.

The Emmy-winning actor looked back at Tamir and said, ‘It is fair when we share,’ and Tamir offered Cookie Monster his favorite delicacy, which he devoured in short order.
Goldstein then asked, ‘What’s another way that we can be fair?’ to which Tamir said, ‘When we play soccer later, we can make sure everybody gets a turn and invite others to play with us.’
Goldstein said, ‘Yes we can be fair by inviting everyone to play soccer, but first we need to clean up,’ pointing at the used mixing bowls that went into the production of the cookies.
Cookie Monster offered to help clean up, leading Goldstein to praise him for ‘showing fairness by doing your part and helping others.’
Cookie Monster said, ‘Me Cookie Monster, but me also fair monster,’ offering to wash the bowls if Tamir dried them.
As Goldstein brought up the arrangement of their soccer teams, Cookie Monster immediately jumped in and said, ‘Me the captain … me the best player after all,’ to which a skeptical Goldstein said, ‘Oh really?’

‘Alright, fair enough, you’re the captain,’ Goldstein said.

‘I finally found my way to Sesame Street (all you have to do is ask, through the medium of song) and it was more wonderful than I could have imagined. Everyone was so funny and brilliant and friendly and kind. I managed to get to say hi to all the residents except Snuffleupagus who was sleeping (although I saw him sleeping and he snores less than you’d think.).’
He continued, ‘Truly a beautiful cast and crew that fill that whole street with all the love you could wish for. Special thanks to Elmo and Grover and Big Bird and Oscar and Cookie Monster, sorry if I scared you. Extra special thanks to @karynl5, @sherrierwestin, Stephen M Youngwood and Zack Van Amburg for making this dream come true. It was perfect.’
Goldstein said that the full episode would be released this year, as Sesame Street’s 53rd season can be seen on HBO Max.
