Sacha Baron Cohen to Guest Star on The Simpsons

Sacha Baron Cohen is getting animated. He’ll be lending his voice for a guest appearance on an upcoming episode of The Simpsons.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Cohen will play a “pretty angry but funny” Israeli tour guide who encounters the family when they take a trip to the Holy Land with their church group. The episode, entitled “The Greatest Story Ever D’ohed,” will also feature Homer believing he’s the Messiah.

Executive producer Al Jean says, “He’s trying to get Marge to give him good grades on the comment card. And she goes, ‘You people are pushy,’ and he goes, ‘What do you mean, ‘you people’? You try having Syria for a neighbour! What do you have — Canada?’”

“The Christians, the Jews and Muslims are united in that they all get mad at Homer. It’s the only thing they can agree on.”

Sounds right up Cohen’s alley! The episode will air in March.
