Pro Athletes to Compete for Laughs on The Simpsons

Word-class athletes Michelle Kwan, LeBron James, Yao Ming and Warren Sapp will be among the celebrity voices featured in a special episode of The Simpsons to air after Fox’s broadcast of Super Bowl XXXIX, according to Daily Variety.

In an installment of the series titled "Homer and Ned’s Hail Mary Pass," the tubby Simpson family patriarch performs a wacky dance at a carnival and suddenly finds himself a sought-after victory dance choreographer to the stars. Eventually, Homer gets to choreograph the Super Bowl halftime show with help from Ned Flanders.

Other stars tapped for upcoming Simpsons episodes include Ray Romano from Everybody Loves Raymond, Kim Cattrall of Sex and the City and rap artist 50 Cent.
