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

Andy-Garcia-SimpsonsImage Credit: Everett Collection; FoxFans 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.” Should viewers expect to see/hear some other big names from the movie? “We thought about going for Clooney, Pitt, and Damon, but why do that when you can have Homer, Skinner, and Frink?” quips Selman. 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.

    As old as the series is you can still count on at least one good laugh per episode. Someday it will be gone and Sundays will be another night of nothing to watch just like when they took Ed Sullivan off.
