Homer Simpson’s Voice Will Appear on Parks and Recreation Next Season

Vulture has learned that an iconic voice from The Simpsons will be making a live-action appearance on NBC's Parks and Recreation next season. Both the voice and body of Dan Castellaneta (a.k.a. Homer Simpson) will appear on episode three of the show's new season. He'll play an NPR-ish talk-show host, according to our source. Castellaneta has a connection to Pawnee: Parks and Recreation co-creator Greg Daniels is an ex-scribe on The Simpsons. The actor also knows something about running a small town, given that one of the many other non-Homer voices he supplies is that of Mayor Quimby.
