Neil Gaiman Wants in on the Teen Book Job on 'The Simpsons' (VIDEO)

It almost feels weird to say this, but in a very clever and entertaining episode of 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX), Homer develops a plan to make a fortune by churning out a tween novel by committee. Popular fantasy author Neil Gaiman played himself, as an existing author wanting in on the scheme.

The entire episode was framed as a heist, with Homer assembling his team, writing the novel and getting it published. The head of the publishing house was in place as the evil villain, while Gaiman proved to be the cleverest of them all, duping everyone by getting the book ultimately published under his own name.
