I can exclusively report that British bad boy Russell Brand, star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek and the upcoming Arthur remake, just left a New York City recording session for an early 2011 episode of Fox's The Simpsons. The episode, titled "Angry Dad - The Movie," finds Russell teaming with previously announced voice guest stars Halle Berry and Ricky Gervais. Bart and Homer head to Los Angeles after they're nominated for an Academy Award for their animated short based on Bart's cartoon webseries, Angry Dad. Hmm. Sounds like this installment could also be spoofing CBS's $#*! My Dad Says. Lord knows Homer has said enough $#* over the past 20 years! But is it Oscar-worthy $#*!? Source Here

Ricky Gervais is making a return trip to Springfield! The co-creator and star of The Office will lend his voice to an episode of The Simpsons this coming season, EW.com has learned. Gervais-who wrote 2006â²s âHomer Simpson, This is Your Wife,â in addition to guest-starring in it as a brownbeaten husband who appears with Marge and Homer on a reality series - pops up this time as himself in an early 2011 installment that brings Homer and Bart to L.A. for the Oscars. (Gervais is not penning the episode.) Jon Hamm, Paul Rudd, Daniel Radcliffe, Hugh Laurie, and Martha Stewart are among the other celebrities getting animated in season 22, which begins Sept. 26 on Fox. Source Here
Interested in a Berry-flavored serving of The Simpsons? Halle Berry will play herself in an upcoming installment of the animated series, exec producer Al Jean tells EW.com. The Oscar-winning actress (Monster's Ball) tosses off a few quips while presenting a trophy at the Academy Awards, which features Bart and Homer as nominees for their animated short that's based on Bart's cartoon webseries Angry Dad. It's a bit of a satire of the different Oscar acceptances where two people clearly race to the stage to get there first,Â says Jean, and Homer and Bart are fighting to be the one that accepts.Â The episode is scheduled to air in early 2011.

Mark Zuckerberg is more and more Hollywood these days with the latest deal that secures him a title as voice actor. The Facebook founder whose life is being adapted in an upcoming feature film titled "The Social Network" will contribute his voice for his own character on "The Simpsons". According to NY Magazine's Vulture column, the yellow version of Zuckerberg will appear in the episode called "Loan-A Lisa". Lisa wants to help with Nelson's new bike company financially and happens to bump onto Zuckerberg when attending an entrepreneurs convention. He tells the kids "how many famous billionaires - including himself - have dropped out of school." The episode is slated to be aired in October, probably around the time "Social Network" hits the U.S. theaters on October 1. It was recently reported that Jon Hamm will voice an FBI agent in the new season. Also the cast members of "Glee" and "Flight of the Conchords" would be featured along with Martha Stewart, Daniel Radcliffe and Alyson Hannigan. The new season starts Sunday, September 26 on FOX. A panel will be held on Saturday, July 24 at the San Diego Comic Con. Source Here
The Simpsons is serving up a side of Hamm: Mad Men star Jon Hamm will voice a character on an upcoming episode of the animated Fox comedy, exec producer Al Jean tells EW.com. In the episode - titled Donnie FatsoÂ and slated to air in December - Hamm plays an FBI supervisor whom Homer reports to when he becomes an undercover informant in prison and infiltrates Fat Tony's inner circle (which means, yes, Joe Mantegna returns to reprise his mobster role). But don't expect to see Don in this don-themed episode. There's no Mad Men reference,Â says Jean. 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.Â And how did the recording session go with Hamm, who has also guested on 30 Rock and SNL? You gave him one note and he immediately did 12 great things with it,Â reports Jean. 'He was really funny. And handsome. He had it all.Â Source Here

Of course, the endearing, goofy, impetuous quarter-wit at the center of The Simpsons didn't win over America all by himself. EW.com caught up with Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, and Dan Castellaneta, who voices Homer, to talk about our No. 1 D'oh! boy. To Read More Click Here .
