At the start of the year we let you know that Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) was to appear on the Hallowe'en episode of "The Simpsons." The first high-resolution promotional picture of Daniel Radcliffe's character has now surfaced and can be found right here in our image galleries! On the 7th of November, Radcliffe will be the voice behind Edmund the Vampire in the 21st Treehouse of Horror episode entitled "Tweenlight." A press release issued by Fox can be seen below:

THE SIMPSONS (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) – “Treehouse of Horror XXI”

Beware of ouija boards, vampires and unexpected guests in the 21st annual installment of the “Treehouse of Horror.” In “War and Pieces,” the first of three spine-tingling tales, Marge (Julie Kavner), worried about the effects of excessively violent video games, encourages Bart (Nancy Cartwright) and Milhouse (Pamela Hayden) to give wholesome, classic board games a shot. The best friends discover that board games aren’t boring after all when they find themselves playing a real-life game in which they must beat all the challenges before they are allowed to return to home. The supernatural spells continue in “Tweenlight,” when Lisa (Yeardley Smith) becomes smitten with a mysterious new student, Edmund (guest voice Daniel Radcliffe), who also happens to be a vampire. When a romance blossoms, the young lovers run away to Dracula-la Land, leaving Homer (Dan Castellaneta) to come to Lisa’s rescue. In the final frightening fable, “Master and Cadaver,” Homer and Marge set sail on a romantic second honeymoon, but are interrupted when they rescue Roger (guest voice Hugh Laurie), a castaway who escaped an attempted poisoning on his ship. Convinced that Roger is sabotaging their getaway and plotting a murder of his own, Homer and Marge take matters into their own hands.

okay, why he playing a damn vampire? Isn’t this supposed to be Cedric’s gig?
Vampires suck and magic is what’s up….no pun intended by the way.

Role – reversal :P
But still would have preferred him to play Harry Potter or at least a wizard. :/

Hahaha brilliant! I can’t wait to see it.
Why does everyone want Dan to be Harry?, If he was playing Harry that would mean they’d take the piss out of Harry Potter, which would make me cross! I heartily approve of taking the piss out of Twilight!

@Vicki_the_house_elf- agreed! first off, simpsons did a very funny HP parody before, it was awesome. Honestly it looks like not everyone is getting the joke, but perhaps they are unfamiliar with the simpsons line of humor…or something…. I think it would be boring if he played Harry, we’ve seen like 15 hours of that.

I enjoy the Simpsons but it seems like a slap to Dan play a Twilight character, though I’m sure it will be funny.
