You would think if anyone would have taken the day off on a hot summer Friday in Southern California, it would have been legendary producer James L. Brooks, but that wasn’t the case today. James has sent out an excited tweet announcing that Olivia Coleman (The Crown) will be playing the most down home femme fatal ever who attracts every man she’s ever met but falls hard, harder than she ever imagined, for Homer Simpson.
The 31st season of THE SIMPSONS, the longest-running primetime scripted show in television history, will feature a multitude of guest voices, including singer, songwriter, record producer and pianist John Legend, his wife, supermodel and author Chrissy Teigen (“Lip Sync Battle”), and Zach Woods (“Silicon Valley”). Additional guest voices this season include Fortune Feimster (“Life in Pieces”), Asia Kate Dillon (“John Wick 3,” “Billions”), Jim Parsons (“Big Bang Theory”), Scott Bakula (“NCIS: New Orleans”) and directors Joseph and Anthony Russo (“Avengers: Endgame”). As previously announced, John Mulaney (“Saturday Night Live”), Bob Odenkirk(“Better Call Saul”), Jason Momoa (“Aquaman”) and primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall also are heard this season.
THE SIMPSONS exploded into a cultural phenomenon in 1990 and has remained one of the most groundbreaking and innovative global entertainment franchises. HOMER (Dan Castellaneta), MARGE (Julie Kavner), BART (Nancy Cartwright), LISA (Yeardley Smith) and MAGGIE are instantly identifiable around the world. The Emmy Award-, Annie Award- and Peabody Award-winning animated comedy will celebrate its 31st season this year.
