The Simpsons will have a very special new guest (Picture: Fox) Kylie Jenner is set to make an appearance in an upcoming episode of the Simpsons, becoming the latest famous face to pop up in Springfield. A string of stars have been given the Simpsons treatment over the past three decades, including Meryl Streep, Katy Perry, Danny DeVito and Kelsey Grammer. It has been revealed that the 26-year-old – who recently launched her clothing collection, Khy – will be adding her vocals to the mix on a new episode of the animated cartoon. Variety reports that Marge is forced to save son Bart when he’s turned into an NFT in season 35’s Treehouse of Horror XXXIV. The matriarch reportedly turns to the ‘illuminati of the crypto universe’ for help – with the Lip Kit queen stepping in to offer her expertise. Honestly, we would also turn to Kylie in that scenario… Kylie Jenner and Marge Simpson become brief besties (Picture: Fox) Showrunner Matt Selman confirmed the cameo to the outlet, revealing that executive producer James L Brooks came up with the NFT idea. ‘The craze has gone up and down and mostly down since we started writing it,’ he told the outlet. ‘But we just thought the idea of all these celebrities who don’t really understand the blockchain — who are so running over each other to promote it and make deals and get rich off it — was a funny area to include. ‘Celebrities who may not really know that much about how cryptocurrency works are the spokesman for this incredibly complicated thing called cryptocurrency.’ Matt conceded that the Kardashians and the Simpsons both being part of the Disney family served as a ‘door opener’ to approach the mom-of-two with the opportunity. Can Kylie Jenner help save Bart Simpson? (Picture: Fox) The reality star was ‘game to be made fun of’ (Picture: Getty) ‘We wrote her some pages, and I think it’s a good fit. She was up for it and game to be made fun of as a celebrity shill,’ he added. ‘I think as someone playing themselves, the part has comedic integrity.’ Thankfully, we don’t have too long to wait as the episode premieres on November 5. The Simpsons has been a staple of the TV guide since it first premiered in December, 1989, and a host of famous faces have graced Springfield with their presence since then. Producer Al Jean previously shed light on the series in a chat with Metro.co.uk, lifting the lid one his favorite episodes from the 33-year run. ‘One I really love is one we did a few years back where Anne Hathaway played a princess who was on Krusty’s show and she was so great,’ he told us. ‘It was a beautiful script and she won an Emmy for it. That’s one of mine but there are a lot. ‘I watch them a lot when we’re making them and then not for years after. But when I see them again, I always remember the hard work we put in. ‘When we’ve had marathons of the episodes, it’s great to see your life, and you remember the wonderful people you’ve worked with. There isn’t one that I have a problem watching, rewatching.’ Got a story?
