"The Simpsons Movie" Premieres in LA
"The Simpsons Movie" which is opening across the nation on Friday, July 27 premiered in Hollywood last night. Voice cast Dan Castellaneta (Homer), Julie Kavner (Marge), Nancy Cartwright (Bart), Yardley Smith (Lisa) and Hanz Azaria (Chief Wiggum) attended the event while Homer Simpson "appeared" on NBC's Jay Leno to promote the FOX movie.
FOX's toon character indulged in a hilarious NBC-bashing monologue and said NBC stands for "Never Been Crappier." He added that "GE [NBC's parent company] makes a lot of other bad things. According to my daughter Lisa, GE fills the air with more dangerous hydrocarbon emissions than Rosie O'Donnell".
After a few more jokes, Homer was led out by NBC security guards while a Simpsonized Leno watched. Later, the real Jay took over the show and said, "I want to thank Homer Simpson for filling in. We had Lindsay Logan but turns out she was already booked." Lohan was originally supposed to appear on the show before her scandalous arrest.
