Olivia Colman will fall madly in love with Homer as she joins The Simpsons
The Crowns Oscar-winning star Olivia Colman has become the latest star to lend her voice to The Simpsons – and Marge better watch out.
The actress, who is about to make a star turn as Queen Elizabeth II, has been confirmed to be heading to Springfield in the upcoming 31st season.
In the episode, she will be playing the most down home femme fatale ever who is used to getting her own way when it comes to the opposite sex.
Yet, despite getting any man she wants, for some reason that will become apparent soon enough, she finds herself falling in love with married slob Homer.
Knowing Homer, he will be completely oblivious to it all…but for how long?
The Simpsons executive producer James L Brooks confirmed the news to Entertainment Weekly and declared her guest spot as one of the best in Simpsons history.
This wont be the first time that Homers loyalty is put to the test after getting dangerously close to fellow factor worker Mindy Simmons in The Last Temptation of Homer.
The episode, which first aired in 1993, saw Homer bond with curvy Mindy over their shared love of junk food, before getting close during a work getaway.
She was voiced by Michelle Pfeiffer, and after Homer turned her down and returning to Marge, hse apparently hit the bottle pretty hard and was barely seen again.
We are ready to see what chaos Olivia brings to the table. Hopefully the heartbreaker will let her down a little more gently this time.
Other a-listers, including Jason Momoa and Chrissy Teigen, will also be heading to the town to get in on the shenanigans of our favourite yellow family.
