Tom Waits to star in The Simp­sons

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MONDAY EXTRA -

singer/song­writer Tom Waits (pic­tured) has landed a guest ap­pear­ance on The Simp­sons. Waits plays him­self in the long-run­ning US car­toon in an episode about the sur­vival­ism move­ment, which in­volves peo­ple mak­ing prepa­ra­tions for po­ten­tial global dis­as­ters. The muso in­tro­duces the show’s main char­ac­ter, Homer Simp­son, to a group of ‘‘prep­pers’’ – peo­ple who lay down plans for such events. Waits does not sing in the episode but fans will recog­nise his dis­tinc­tive voice.
