The co-creator and star of The Office will lend his voice to an episode of The Simpsons this coming season, has learned. Gervais—who wrote 2006’s “Homer Simpson, This is Your Wife,” in addition to guest-starring in it as a brownbeaten husband who appears with Marge and Homer on a reality series—pops up this time as himself in an early 2011 installment that brings Homer and Bart to L.A. for the Oscars. (Gervais is not penning the episode.) Jon Hamm, Paul Rudd, Daniel Radcliffe, Hugh Laurie, and Martha Stewart are among the other celebrities getting animated in season 22, which begins Sept. 26 on Fox.
