Russell Brand to Voice a Character on The Simpsons

at . Comments

Russell Brand is headed to Springfield.

The hilarious star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek will voice a character on an episode of The Simpsons scheduled to air in early 2011.

Titled "Angry Dad - The Movie," the installment will also feature the voices of Halle Berry and Ricky Gervais. It finds Bart and Homer in Los Angeles after they're nominated for an Oscar for their animated short on Bart's cartoon webseries, Angry Dad.

Makes perfect sense to us.

Jon Hamm, Glee cast members and many other stars have also booked guest-starring turns on season 22 of The Simpsons.
