Neil Gaiman appearing in “The Simpsons”


Well-known fantasy author Neil Gaiman famous for Coraline and Stardust will be appearing in “The Simpsons” episode titled “The Book Job” to premiere this Sunday. The English author’s role required “a bad American accent”. According to FOX the synopsis of this episode is as follows:

“Lisa becomes disheartened when she learns the shocking truth behind the ‘tween lit’ industry and her beloved fantasy novel characters. But Homer decides to cash in on the craze and forms a team to group-write the next ‘tween lit’ hit, with the king of fantasy, Neil Gaiman (guest-voicing as himself), lending his expertise to the effort. After catching the eye of a slick industry publisher (guest-voice Andy Garcia) at the Springfield Book Fair, the team gets an advanced copy of their work and discovers that the corporate lit business is a bigger operation than they imagined.”
