Soon, though, Lisa becomes worried that Harper is a little too entitled. “She’s a great friend… if you do everything she says,” Simpsons executive producer Al Jean tells EW. 

Bell, who recently starred in the Veronica Mars movie and guested on Parks and Recreation, is filming the big-screen comedy Michelle DarnellHer Simpsons episode also features a brief vocal role for David Copperfield, who plays himself.
