In a recent interview with the Phoenix New Times, Christopher Lloyd has floated the possibility of joining the cast of Rick and Morty in a guest-starring role as Rick’s father in an upcoming episode. With a 70-episode back order commissioned by Adult Swim a couple of months ago, it’s very possible that the recently Emmy-nominated series could get the original “Doc”.:

So you’re a fan of Rick and Morty?
I don’t follow it closely, but I’ve seen a few episodes and I gotta tell you, I think it’s a lot of fun. I know it’s some kind of parody of Doc and Marty.

Would you ever want to guest star or do a guest voice on the show?
I’d like to, of course. I think it’s really fun.

Maybe as like Rick’s father or something like that?
(Chuckles) Yeah, yeah. That’d be fun.

Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction adventure comedy series created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Cartoon Network’s late-night programming block Adult Swim.

After having been missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez suddenly arrives at daughter Beth’s doorstep to move in with her and her family. Although Beth welcomes Rick into her home, her husband, Jerry, isn’t as happy about the family reunion. Jerry is concerned about Rick, a sociopathic scientist, using the garage as his personal laboratory. In the lab, Rick works on a number of sci-fi gadgets, some of which could be considered dangerous. But that’s not all Rick does that concerns Jerry. He also goes on adventures across the universe that often involve his grandchildren, Morty and Summer.

Entertainment Weekly has the scoop that Tracy Morgan is guest-starring in not one but two episodes of The Simpsons (aka one of U2’s favorite shows this fall. He will be in two episodes, the first one entitled “My Way or the Highway to Heaven,” he’ll voice himself, in the other, he’ll voice a tow truck driver in an episode called  “Baby You Can’t Drive My Car,”.

The Simpsons is slated for a 30th season premiere this September that you can see more about here.
