Jon Hamm to guest star on 'Simpsons'

“Mad Men” star Jon Hamm is about to join an even madder cast –“The Simpsons”!

The 39-year-old actor will lend his voice to the hit Fox series in a mobster-themed episode to air in December. According to EW, Hamm will play an FBI supervisor whom Homer reports to when he goes undercover in prison to infiltrate a gangster’s inner circle.

“He has no patience for Homer,” said "Simpsons" executive producer Al Jean of Hamm’s character. “Homer asks if he can pick his undercover name, and finally Jon just says, ‘Your name will be Nicky Blue Pants Altosaxophony.’ Homer says, ‘Do I get to keep the name when I’m done with it?’ and Jon says, ‘No, it’s the property of the government.’”

And what was it like to work with the in-demand actor? “He was really funny. And handsome,” says Jean. “He had it all.”

    Always what is the funniest is when a bart simpson in theater, goes for the crown jewels of the operation of be the producer trying to take their production to the top. (then having a lush of cameras go off regarding the uncertain draw of ie lush)

    I think may be best used if filled out more personally.

    The Simpsons.. When the writing dies, you have lost the soul of the thing. Had they pulled the plug on the Series in 2004, that would have been about right. Matt Groening, she's old now and suffering. Put her down

    Whether it's better than the rest of TV or not, Alek has a point. No matter how good shows may be, there's a rise and fall.

    Alek – Simpsons are still better than 98% of everything on TV right now. I think you'd brain is dead if you think otherwise.
