Children’s Fantasy Book Publishing and the Simpsons

According to Matt Selman, executive producer on The Simpsons, “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 will be voicing “an evil children’s fantasy book publisher” in a nod to Terry Benedict, his role in Ocean’s.

In another reference to Benedict, “no matter where [Garcia’s character] is, he’ll always have a famous painting behind him.” In case you haven’t seen the movie in awhile, Benedict had a “love of fine art.”

However, don’t expect to hear from other actors from the movies in this episode. The characters of The Simpsons will be plenty enough for them, though Neil Gaiman, a fantasy author, will also be giving his voice to his animated self for this episode.

  2. Oh, most excellent! And finally a melding of my husband’s fandom (all things Simpsons) and my own.

  3. I love the way they sort of mention on the side, Neil Gaiman’s role. For many of us, Neil trumps Andy big time:)
