The first time Maggie spoke, it was just one word (“Daddy”), and Elizabeth Taylor did the honors. This time, Maggie is saying a bunch of words, and another film icon has lent her pipes to the cause: Jodie Foster (pictured, left). In an episode of The Simpsons slated to air in early 2009, she voices an adult version of Maggie. (The episode, “Four Great Women & A Manicure,” reimagines the worlds of Macbeth, The Fountainhead, Citizen Kane, and Queen Elizabeth I, with Springfield residents in key roles.)
Meanwhile, Anne Hathaway will grace a different early-2009 installment, “The Good, the Sad and the Drugly.” She plays a sweet, charitable girl whom Bart falls for — so hard, in fact, that he becomes a good Samaritan to win her affection. When she discovers the truth about Bart, though, she breaks up with him and he reverts to his devious ways. The Simpsons returns to Fox for season 20 on Sept. 28.
