HankAzaria reads off L.A. Dodgers lineup as ‘The Simpsons’ characters…with ‘Tron’ soundtrack in back ground
What in the God damn wrong is with the Los Angeles Dodgers? They did a solid in inviting the great Hank Azaria to read off the starting lineup for the team the other day, but he’s doing it with the Tron: Legacy soundtrack in the background. As much as I love the Tron movies wouldn’t you pick a more uplifting soundtrack when you have one of the funnier guys in America there reading off the lineup?? I just thought it made the whole call out of the roster seem like it was supposed to be funny (which it was) somehow mixing in with a movie that is all about the evil counterpart of Kevin Flynn vying for world domination.That’s like Louis C.K. doing stand-up with ‘My Heart Will Go On’ by Celine Dion playing in the background. Check it out after the jump, let us know what you think.
TVGuide.com has gotten the exclusive first look pic of Eva Longoria’s character ‘Isabel’ of whom is set to guest on an episode of The Simpsons sometime next season. According to the article:
“I play Isabel, a new student who is finally Lisa’s intellectual equal,” Longoria says. ”They become fast friends, and then things take a left turn when they realize they have different political views. This is a big stretch for me not only because it’s voice work, which I rarely do, but also [because] I’m playing a Republican and I’m obviously a Democrat.”
Lisa has had a bunch of intellectual equals before so it will be interesting to see how this one plays out. This isn’t the only time you get to see Eva voice a character as she’s been making the rounds promoting her new animated series on Hulu set to premier this fall called Mother Up! The Simpsons have announced a whole bunch of guest stars recently including Anderson Cooper, Kristen Wiig, and a mess of others.
Right now The Simpsons are in reruns, but they will be returning this fall with all new episodes.

ChefRich REALLY wanted me to run this story: Universal Studios opens up Simpsons themed restaurants and bars with trailer!
We reported a few weeks ago that Universal Studios is putting together a whole The Simpsons-themed park centered around its already opened The Simpsons Ride. Welp, according to Gizmodo (by way of Rich) some of the restaurants and bars are already opened for the Summer including Moe’s Tavern, Krusty Burger, Cletus’ Chicken Shack, the Frying Dutchman, Luigi’s Pizza, and Lard Lad’s. You can watch a trailer for the park after the jump. And word to the wise for all the managers of these places, ChefRich may be sending you filled-out applications sooner rather than later.
