simpsons marcia wallace bart simpson mrs krabappel tribute

We were so sorry to hear about the passing of Marcia Wallace last week.

Such a small cast of super talented voice actors fills Springfield that the loss to The Simpsons is all the more devastating.

That's why the show took a moment from their iconic opening titles to dedicate to the passing of Mrs. Edna Krabappel.

Showrunner Al Jean made it clear that Marcia's illness was NOT what prompted the plot line of a major character death this season. He said:

Lady Gaga Does The Simpsons In Lisa Goes Gaga

As creator Matt Groening says of Lady GaGa:

Since the very beginning, I’ve always wanted to have on the most iconic personalities of our time, and she’s it.

The Simpsons and GaGa are teaming up for a very special upcoming episode about self-esteem and sequins — Lisa Goes GaGa.

In the episode, GaGa rushes to Springfield as soon as she finds out it's a town swarming with low self-esteem. There, she rescues a depressed Lisa through the powers that be GaGa.

Michael Cera Guest Starring On The Simpsons

Cera Simpson

About time! How has this lovable cutie NOT made an appearance in Springfield yet?

Producers of the hit animated show have announced that Michael Cera has recorded his voice for an episode in the next season of The Simpsons.

Cera will play a love interest for little Lisa Simpson who doesn't turn out to be who she expected. Executive producer Al Jean recently said:

“He starts quoting Hemingway and she says, ‘You’re not a product of the Springfield public schools, are you?’ And he goes, ‘No, I come to Springfield for the food and the women.’”

LOLz! Love it! Unfortunately, much like the Simpson kid's age, her single relationship status won't change either, as Al continued:

“So he talks a good game. [But] she starts to realize that he’s less than expected.”

Bummer! Should be an awesome episode though!

Jon Hamm Is Coming To The Simpsons!

Filed under: TV NewsYummy Yummy Screw

He was pretty funny on Saturday Night Live, so we'll bet he'll do a great job cartoonized!

Mad Men's Jon Hamm will reportedly be lending his voice to The Simpsons next season, where he'll be playing an FBI supervisor that takes Homer under his wing as an informant for the government!

Executive Producer Al Jean says:

“There’s no Mad Men reference. Jon’s a gruff FBI man. Homer asks if he can pick his undercover name and finally Jon just says, ‘Your name will be Nicky Blue Pants Altosaxophony.’ Homer says, ‘Do I get to keep the name when I’m done with it?’ and Jon says, ‘No, it’s the property of the government.’ He has no patience for Homer. You gave him one note and he immediately did 12 great things with it. He was really funny. And handsome. He had it all.”

Agreed!

We just hope that his character is SEKSI like him!

What do U think?? Are U excited to see Don Draper on The Simpsons??
