Doh! Dan Radcliffe Set to Dazzle in "Simpsons" Parody of "Twilight" Series

Here is a rather delicious bit news today, as Entertainment Weekly and MTV report that actor Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) will lend his voice for the hit animated series "The Simpson." In what is sure to be a sparkling performance ;) Dan will sport fangs of a sort for a parody episode based on the mega hit Twilight series where he will portray a character named Edmund (yes, really) "a boy vampire whom Lisa falls for. Unfortunately for the Twilight-crossed lovers, Homer and Dracula -- Edmund's dear, old dad -- don't approve of the union, and they endeavor to put a stop to it." This episode will air next fall as part of the Simpson's " "Treehouse of Horror XXI" triptych, the series' yearly Halloween special." 

No word if Werewolves or Bella will make an appearance ;0 Thanks so much Radcakes fan!

Sorry about the multiple post, guys. I hate that! Anyway, I’m glad everyone is so happy and excited about this but I’m still disappointed that they leaked it so early. This episode is still year away and we are barely at the beginning of production. I don’t understand why Al had to reveal so much of the plot. It’s going to take away from experiencing the show yourself. They should have just said Dan was going to do a guest voice on The Simpsons in a Twilight parody. Then the reveal would be its own fun thing. The ONLY reason I can see for announcing it now is that New Moon opens this weekend and they wanted to jump on that to bring attention to The Simpsons. This no reason for the extra details. Just give it all away! sigh

Well, I hope you guys still like it in the end.

This is going to be so AWESOME!! Dan has great comedic timing and I love the concept. I’m already laughing. It’s too bad we have to wait a year to see it. I can’t wait.
