Sharp-tongued talent show supremo SIMON COWELL is to follow in the footsteps of U2, REM and 'N SYNC - by appearing in acclaimed animation series THE SIMPSONS.
Cowell, a judge on US talent show AMERICAN IDOL, made a lasting impression on producer AL JEAN after delivering a string of insults to hapless contestants.
Jean says, "I think Simon would be hilarious in the show. We're talking about a story where the Simpsons are having trouble getting MAGGIE, the baby, into nursery school.
"We thought it would be really funny if he played the nursery school admissions officer."29/04/2003 13:12
