Archbishop of Canterbury May Star on 'Simpsons'

Simpsons News — Posted 22 Jun, 2004 by Scott

Archbishop of Canterbury and Simpsons fan Rowan Williams may be about to follow in Tom Jones's footsteps with a guest appearance on the our favorite show, The Simpsons.

Producers Twentieth Century Fox are set to approach the Welsh primate with an offer to star in 'The Simpsons' after he praised the show in an interview.

Executive Producer and chief writer Al Jean said he was flattered to number the Archbishop among the show's fans. He said: "We'd love to have him on the show if he doesn't mind Comic Book Guy calling him the 'worst archbishop ever.'

Dr. Williams is not be the first Welsh guest star of note to appear on The Simpsons.

In series six, a restrained Anthony Hopkins is wheeled in like Hannibal Lecter to audition for the part of Mr. Burns. Full Story.
