Assange guest on Simpsons

Julian Assange, of WikiLeaks fame, will guest star on "The Simpsons." He will appear as himself in the long-running show's 500th episode, airing February 19.

According to EW, the episode's plot goes like this: "Homer and Marge discover that the residents of Springfield are holding a secret town meeting to kick them out of Springfield for all of their shenanigans over the years. As a result, 'the Simpsons go off the grid to this very rugged place where they meet [Assange], who's sort of their new Flanders,' explains [exec producer Al] Jean. And how exactly is he like pious neighbor Ned? 'Well, he lives next door,' quips Jean. 'The similarities end there… He invites them over for a home movie and it's an Afghan wedding being bombed.'"
