Young Eric Cowell has decided to follow his dad into the world of show business and will voice a character named Ben in the film.
The music mogul, who - naturally - is playing himself in the film, also shared a shot of his animated avatar sitting around the table in a diner alongside Scooby Doo and the rest of the Mystery Machine gang, Velma, Daphne, Fred and Shaggy.
In his Instagram post, he spoke of his love for the old cartoons, and said how delighted he was to be involved in this 21st century reboot.
He said: "I watched Scooby Doo as a kid and now I'm thrilled to be watching it again with my son Eric. So when we got asked to be in the new Scooby Doo movie '@SCOOB!', it was the quickest yes I've ever said.
"We never really got to find out how Scooby and Shaggy met the rest of the gang and now we do. It's brilliant and what's more brilliant is that you will be able to watch it at home on May 15."
As well as Cowell, there's a long list of stars that have been recruited to portray Scooby and the gang for a whole new audience in 2020.
The film features turns from A-listers like Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried and Zac Efron to name but a few.
Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, you won't be able to go to the cinema to see this new movie, or any movie at all to be quite honest.
However, it is coming straight to video on demand so you'll be able to get your eyes on it from 15 May, as Cowell already said in his post.
It must be nice for Simon to be able to work with his young son, as he obviously loves spending as much time with him as he can.
He might even have some grander schemes in mind along the line, too.
In 2018, Cowell told Lorraine: "I look at things through his eyes now, I want to spend more time with him. I'm lucky because he likes the show [Britain's Got Talent], so he comes down to the shows with me, because I'm sort of training him up... I'd love him to take over."
Well, let's just see how he gets on in this first job, shall we?
