When your a comedian you know you have really made it when you get that special call. No not to host the Oscars or perform on Broadway, but when you get a call from Matt Groening offering you a guest spot on The Simpsons. British comedian Russell Brand joins a distinguished club that features everyone from Mel Brooks to Rodney Dangerfield.
Brand told the English Newspaper The Sun.
“It’s true I’m going to be on The Simpsons. I was having an amazing birthday party… and then my agent says, ‘Oh, The Simpsons want you in an episode.’ Once you’ve gone yellow, you’ve made it.”
He even offered up an idea for his show episode telling the paper “my ideal show would be where I have a cartoon relapse with Barney and Homer and get smashed out of my mind with them.”
The episode is scheduled to air later in the year. Brand currently is starring in the movie Get Him To The Greek.
