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!

Avatar ImageSwedish Plimpy says: Cool! :DAvatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: That should be a funny episode! LOLAvatar Imagejain says: if the vampire film is a 'mega/ hit. what does that make Harry? A blip? I think someone should remind these people just who the senior partner is,the highest grossing franchise or the puny new kid on the block! My moneys on the heayweight seeing off the fey pale pretender.Avatar ImageDrome says: Lol. :DAvatar Imagestarwarshippie says: Should be great, the Simpsons are my favorite show. Avatar ImageeiVega says: DAMN! I WANTED TO BE THE ONE WHO TIPPED OFF LEAKY! NOT FAIR! I didn't think they would announce it this early!! We're still in story-reel phase, pre-animatic screening. So much for being contractually obliged to silence! And it's not that he "will" lend his voice...he ALREADY has! It's GREAT! I LOVE the script! oOoo... I feel like I've been robbed of a precious treasure I was guarding. I guess if our show runner, Al Jean, wants to spill the beans, it's okay for him to do it. Oh well, at least I still know how it will play out. When I first searched the news to see if there was anything out there I only found a reference during Chamber of Secrets that Dan really wanted to be on the Simpsons. I'm glad he finally got his wish. As if he didn't already have everything...haha. here's that link: http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/tv_film/newsid_2580000/2580815.stm Anyway, I REALLY hope he comes to the Simpsons premiere next season!! I'm going to go crazy if I can meet him! Yay for Simpsons/Harry Potter parodies! I really like some of the things we have in store for you guys! ;)Avatar ImageJeannine says: @eiVega....so Dan has already done the voice? will the character resemble him at all???Avatar ImageJeannine says: @ieVega.....so Dan has already done the voice? Will the way the charater looks resemble him at all?Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Sounds like fun will be had by all...Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: It is brilliant that they chose him for this role and I eagerly await seeing this episode.Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: Lol,sounds like it's gonna be awesome!Avatar Imageccking says: LMAO SOOO EXCITED !Avatar Imageccking says: LMAO SOOO EXCITED !Avatar Imageccking says: LMAO SOOO EXCITED !Avatar Imageele0206 says: OMG this is so funny! I guess the "Simpsons" don't like Twilight much! yessssss!!! ;))))))))) can't waitAvatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Can't wait to hear it!!!Avatar ImageAsi says: Interesting....I rememeber that in Dan's biography there was a word about him loving Simpsons and parents didn't letting him watch them , I think it was the happiest moment of his life , the moment when he became the part of the thing he loved as a kid !!Avatar Imagedarradiggory says: i sooo cant wait this is going to be sooo coolAvatar ImageBella Longbottom says: Haha, brilliant. Can't wait to see this :DAvatar ImageFifi says: LOL! That is soo funny! I'm definitely going to try and watch it!Avatar ImageFresca says: This should be very funny. I hope thye do have a Bella, because that is one character who would be a good target for satire!Avatar Imagemuggle118 says: cant wait to see it!Avatar ImageHattFerg says: I think i might die, this is AWSOMEAvatar ImageeiVega says: @alicia00 There is no Harry Potter in it. This is a Twilight parody with Dan as the vampire. That's what is ironic and a joke in itself. We have a small Harry Potter joke in another episode but it's not newsworthy seeing that every show makes HP references. @owanalilypotter[ROAR] The Treehouse of Horror episode is always aired around Halloween. Usually it is the first Sunday of November, but this year it was early on Oct 18. It is affected by the sports schedule. Basically though, Sunday nights at 8pm on FOX. Avatar ImageDeliaDee says: I don't have television (I have a t.v., mind you, as well as a dvd player, but I don't have television) but this is exactly the sort of thing that would make me cave and give in to the Evil Cable/Satellite Blood Suckers. Ah well, I have a year to decide whether or not to sell out to The Man. :)Avatar ImageeiVega says: @alicia00 There is no Harry Potter in it. This is a Twilight parody with Dan doing the voice of the vampire. That is ironic and a joke in itself. We have another episode with a small HP joke but that isn't newsworthy because it seems every show now makes HP references. @owanalilypotter[ROAR] The Treehouse of Horror episode airs around Halloween. Usually it's the first Sunday of November, but this year it was October 18. The sports schedule can affect the date. Basically, watch Sunday nights at 8pm on FOX.Avatar ImageJeannine says: @ alicio....Harry isn't on The Simpsons ....Dan does the voice for a Vampire named Edmund.... who Lisa loves ( a bit like Bella in Twilight ).....it's a bit of a Twilight parody Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: LOL!! wow that's new :P Avatar ImageeiVega says: @alicia00 There is no Harry Potter in it. This is a Twilight parody. The ironic thing is that Dan is doing the voice for the vampire. That is a joke in itself.

Usually it is release the first Sunday of November but this year it was October 18. The sports schedule can affect it. Basically though, just watch The Simpsons Sunday nights at 8pm on FOX.Avatar Imagephoenixes are in ravenclaw says: The irony is dripping off the page. A Harry Potter actor in a parody about it's "rival" book series!!!! Can't wait!Avatar ImagetheREALGinnyWeasley says: Hhahahahahaha SO EXCITED! Even though I hate the Simpsons....I'm just gonna watch it for Dan <3Avatar Imageharrygetsme says: haha that's funny! props to dan for supporting twilight ;)Avatar Imagekyramp says: Omg this should be funny!!Avatar ImageFloridianFlounder95 says: Life = complete? YES.Avatar Imagemagicmaniac says: AWESOME I'M WATCHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THOUGH I HAVE NEVER WATCHED OR READ TWILIGHT BECAUSE IM A GUY!!!!!! BUT AWESOME!!!!!!! GREAT FOR HIM!!!!! HE IS RICH I BET!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageKiwiBrian says: I'm looking forward to that episode.Avatar ImageRowling Stones says: OMG i've got to see this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: that is hilarious i'm definitely gonna watch it.Avatar ImageeiVega says: 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.Avatar Imagejain says: Glad to see that Dan has acheived his ambition to appear on the series Avatar ImageJeannine says: This is a Brilliant! move on the part of the producors of The Simpsons..I think the series interest has wanned a little lately but this will riv it up again. Can hardly WAIT!! DH and The Simpsons late next year!!! 2010 !!! bring it on!!!!!Avatar ImageJane_Potter says: Brilliant. Well done Dan!!!Avatar Imagevespasian68967 says: That...ought...to...be...COOL!!! Avatar ImageCaptnCurlz says: Talk about bloody brillant!!!!! That will be hilarious! Finally some making fun Twilight! I cant wait! Excellant Danny!!:)Avatar Imagecghambright says: 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. Avatar ImageRosie016 says: Wow! I can't wait to see this one, even though I am not a Simpson's fan.Avatar Imagepfowlerp says: This is going to be so AWESOME, I can’t wait to see this one!!! Too bad it's a year away.Avatar ImageHydrus says: Wondering if 'Mega Star' Robert Pattison will be lending his voice to 'Family Guy' or some such thing - After he has received his advice from Dan on how to handle fame & fortune, of course.Avatar ImageSidish_black6 says: Haha :) neat !! I love Simpsons :)Avatar ImageNicci Weasley says: That is so cool!Avatar ImageNinnyTreetops says: Postmodernism, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...Avatar ImageMikeMagpuyo says: Nice,,Avatar ImageeiVega says: @Jeannine Yes, Dan has already done the voice. I have heard the track. I have no clue when he did it but he squeezed it in. I'm guessing he did a phone patch record which we occasionally do. I'm not sure if the design is final yet but he's suppose to look more like Edward from Twilight. and Sue-- no word on Bella? You do know that's Lisa's role. There is no need for a Bella cameo while Lisa is playing that part. ;)Avatar Imagesimos says: Brilliant! They couldn't have made a better choice!Avatar Imagedarradiggory says: i sooo cant wait this is going to be soooo coolAvatar Imageanne1 says: wicked! next stop Family Guy.Avatar ImageLadySidi says: LOL awesome!Avatar ImageDiamondWings says: OMG!!!

Good for Dan but not being a Simpson's fan, I think it will be wasted on me.Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Awesome! I can't wait to see it. I love The Simpsons. Their Harry Potter parody was great. I'm sure their Twilight parody will be hilarious as well.Avatar Imagetroyalg says: I love Twilight, but I'm the kind of person who can laugh at what I like, if it's funny. I think I'll have to tune in. I don't normally watch The Simpsons, but their Treehouse of Horrors are usually funny. Avatar ImageParkinsonpansy says: hahah don't twilight but i love the simpsins and dan so this should be interestingAvatar Imageowanalilypotter says: OMG I HAVE TO SEE THIS!! I love Simpsons, I LOVE Harry Potter (and Dan duh!) and, please don't kill me, but I HATE Twilight! Ohh, this should be good! Any word on when it's being released??Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: oh... well... that should be interesting!! :)Avatar ImageIndigoMisfit says: I'm not fan of the Simpson's, I don't find them very funny. But, I am a fan of Dan (oh that rhymes!) and Twilight, so I might actually watch this episode.Avatar ImageeiVega says: @alicia00 There is no Harry Potter in it. This is a Twilight parody. The ironic thing is that Dan is doing the voice for the vampire. That is a joke in itself.
