David Mamet to Be Heard on The Simpsons

at . Comments

He might not possess the rugged handsomeness of Jon Hamm, who will lend his voice to The Simpsons on this Sunday's episode, but David Mamet has the resume to match anyone in Hollywood.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright will be heard on the January 23 episode of this classic cartoon, portraying a version of himself: the writer of a 1980s family sitcom with which Homer becomes obsessed.

Producer Al Jean told EW he's thrilled to have Mamet take part in an episode.

“Obviously, it’s an honor for us. In fact, we clearly ripped off the Jack Lemmon character from Glengarry Glen Ross and used him as our underachieving salesman Gil.”

The Simpsons Quotes

(To the tune of "Baby Got Back.")
I like big guts and I cannot lie
Double chins with the chafing thighs
When a dude walks in with the hanging jowls
My stomach starts to growl--I'm gettin' hungry
So I masticate, chomping on the overweight
I eat fat people for days
Like potato chips by Lay's
Try to eat just one, but it can't be done
I've got to eat a ton
Baby likes fat
Baby likes fat

Sir Mix-a-Lot

Dearest Edna, I must leave you. Why, I cannot say. Where, you cannot know. How I will get there, I haven't decided yet. But one thing I can tell you, any time I hear the wind blow it will whisper the name Edna. And so let us part with a love that will echo through the ages. ---Woodrow
