Star Trek 2‘s Benedict Cumberbatch has landed a voice role on one of America’s favorite animated series.
Cumberbatch will be heard in a cameo role on The Simpsons.
A meeting in the same place as where The Simpsons is recorded led to Cumberbatch landing the role. “I heard there was a part going in an episode,” he said. “I said, ‘I hate to muscle in here guys but could I record it?’ Next thing, I’m standing in a room with all those famous voices; Bart, Marge, Homer, Lisa.”
There is no word yet on when Cumberbatch’s Simpsons episode will air.
