HARRY POTTER TO PARODY TWILIGHT ON THE SIMPSONS!
www.moviesblog.mtv.com: I don’t know if you readers are familiar with SEO (search engine optimization), but that headline is a dream come true. You’ve got two of the biggest movie franchise phenomenons currently around combining with the longest-running American sitcom/animated series/primetime series (all three categories). As a “Simpsons” fan since day one of the series, it’s also a great synergy of interests — professional and non-professional — on a personal level.
Okay, here’s the news: EW‘s Hollywood Insider is exclusively reporting that “Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe will lend his voice to “The Simpsons” next season. Not just any episode either: he’ll appear in one part of next year’s “Treehouse of Horror XXI” triptych, the series’ yearly Halloween special. And the part of the episode he appears in will in fact be a “Twilight” parody. Hell, there are even a few plot details. Cue brain exploding… now.
In his appearance, Radcliffe will play Edmund, a boy vampire whom Lisa falls for. Unfortunately for the Twilight-crossed lovers, Homer and Dracula — Edmund’s dear, old dad — don’t approve of the union, and they endeavor to put a stop to it. Obviously not a direct spoof of the “Twilight” plot.
