'Simpsons': 'McBain: the (Hidden) Movie'!

Are the producers of   The Simpsons   even sneakier than we thought? Consider the following   video evidence , which stitches together all of those ’90s   Simpsons   clips featuring Rainier Wolfcastle in action as McBain, the Arnold Schwarzenegger/Bruce Willis-spoofing movie action hero. Turns out, they kinda-sorta add up to a short film in which McBain butts heads with his by-the-book boss ("Bye, book," he declares after literally shooting the captain’s book), avenges the death of his partner (who was just two days away from retiring and sailing away with his wife on their newly christened boat, The Live-4-Ever!) by taking down Senator Mendoza (who’s been moonlighting as the head of an international drug cartel!), and gets the girl ("Right now, I’m thinking of holding another meeting… in bed"). So, was this part of an ancient secret master plan that is only now coming to light?   "It was always just conceived as the most melodramatic fragments of a bigger movie where we never really had a big movie in mind,"   Simpsons   exec producer Al Jean tells EW. Jean did, however, open the door for the McBain mini-movie to eventually add a few scenes: "If Schwarzenegger goes back into movies, then we’ll go back into McBain." And he left us with this quip: "If we edited together all the   Itchy & Scratchy s, we’d have   The Simpsons Movie 2 ." Read More...

'The Simpsons': Andy Garcia to guest star, nod to his 'Ocean's Eleven' character

Fans of   The Simpsons , our advice to you is to run and hide: Andy Garcia is lending his voice to an episode of the animated comedy that winks at the  Ocean’s Eleven  franchise, EW has learned exclusively. In a playful nod to his   Ocean’s   character, menacing casino magnate Terry Benedict, the film actor guest stars as an evil children’s fantasy book publisher, says   Simpsons executive producer Matt Selman, who reveals only this about the plot: "Homer and some people in Springfield have to perpetrate an   Ocean’s Eleven –style heist in the non- Ocean’s Eleven   world of children’s fantasy book publishing." Garcia recorded his lines earlier this week, and although the character hasn’t been designed yet, Selman hopes to include a reference to Benedict’s love of fine art. "No matter where he is, he’ll always have a famous painting behind him." Fantasy author Neil Gaiman also pops up (as himself) in this episode, which is titled "The Book Job" and is scheduled to air on Fox early next season.'s:+Hollywood+Insider)&utm_content=Google+Reader

Homer Simpson Prefers a Friendship with Ned Flanders? (VIDEO)

On 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX), Marge has "broken up" with her old friends. But she hasn't told Homer, as she thinks he and the other wives' spouses all get along so well. Hardly. They only share the sentiment: "Let's just shut up and get through this, alright?"  As they sit quietly around the backyard picnic table, Ned Flanders pops his head over the fence and gives a trademark Flanders greeting. Homer bolts from the table, runs over and gives him a hug, exclaiming, "Oh, you beautiful man!" He replies, "That feeling is mutual of Omaha." Homer smiles and says, "God, you're hilarious!"
