Simpsons Announces 21st Season Guests

The Simpsons exec producer Al Jean has revealed the celebrity guest voices lined up for the 21st season of the long-running hit animated series. Jean told EW.com that Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin stars in an episode in which Homer wins a million-dollar lottery and hires the band to play a concert just for him and Bart. Apparently, when Bart takes a bathroom break, the whole Coldplay has to wait for him to finish his business.

Foul-mouthed comic Sarah Silverman will also be lending her voice talents in an episode in which she plays Bart’s new girlfriend, who ‘alternately loves him and hates him for no reason,’ according to Jean. Season 20 guest star Anne Hathaway also returns as a princess character that the producers of Krusty the Clown’s show bring onto the series in hopes that more young girls will tune in.

The season premiere, written by and guest-starring Seth Rogen, is scheduled for Sept. 27 on FOX-TV, Other season guests include Eartha Kitt, who recorded a part shortly before passing away earlier last year, Neve Campbell, Jonah Hill, the Smothers Brothers and Eli Manning. Fox Home Entertainment will release The Simpsons: The Complete 12th Season comes out on DVD on August 18.
