He may be known best these days for playing a meth kingpin on Breaking Bad, but Bryan Cranston is set to moonlight for one night as an action hero on The Simpsons. EW has learned that the three-time Emmy winner will voice Stradivarius Cain, a suave Hollywood superspy whom Homer sees as an illusion after suffering a head injury. Cain has a very important mission: to make Homer into a man that Marge can’t resist.

The episode, titled “The Spy Who Learned Me,” is slated to air in spring 2012. The animated comedy’s 23rd season, which debuts Sept. 25 on Fox, will also feature the guest voices of Jane Lynch, Michael Cera, Andy Garcia, Jeremy Irons, Joan Rivers, and Kiefer Sutherland.
