Fox releases clip of Gal Gadot on ‘The Simpsons’


(JTA) — Actress Gal Gadot will audition for the movie role of Bart Simpsons’ sister Lisa in a cameo appearance on the first episode of the 30th season of “The Simpsons.”

Fox released a preview of the episode ahead of its Sept. 30 airing date.

In the episode, titled “Bart’s Not Dead,” Homer Simpson and his neighbor Ned Flanders hold auditions for actors to portray the family after a group of Christian producers decide to make a movie following Bart Simpson’s claim that he went to heaven and met Jesus.

Once Gadot starts reading the script, Ned immediately offers her the part, but Homer is not so sure.

“I know you were great in ‘Fast and Furious,’ but what else have you been in?” he asks her after putting the brakes on Ned.

“Uh, did you see ‘Wonder Woman’?” says Gadot.

“Whenever I see the DC logo I immediately fall asleep,” Homer answers.

In February, the “Wonder Woman” star announced her news on Twitter accompanied by a video of her autographing the blue hair of Simpson’s character Marge on a poster also autographed by other screen stars.

“I grew up watching @The Simpsons and now I get to voice myself in an episode! Stay tuned…” she tweeted.

“The Simpsons,” created by Matt Groening, debuted in 1989 and is the longest-running American sitcom, as well as the longest-running American animated program, with 629 episodes.
