'The Simpsons' to Befriend Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein


The two 'Portlandia' stars are slated to voice the Simpsons' new neighbors, who are described as a cool family from Portland.

"The Simpsons" are going to get new neighbors from "Portlandia". Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, who co-star on the IFC comedy series, will provide their voice for characters in an episode of the animated show's 24th season.

The "Saturday Night Live" cast member and the Wild Flag lead guitarist/singer will play a "cool" family that moves from Portland to Springfield and becomes the Simpsons' new neighbors, TVLine reports. Homer will be seen desperately trying to befriend them, but Marge thinks that "being cool isn't all it's cracked up to be."

Commenting on Armisen and Brownstein's casting, executive producer Al Jean gushed, "They're the best thing to come out of Portland since everything our show took out of Portland." The episode featuring the "Portlandia" duo is titled "The Day the Earth Stayed Cool" and will air next fall.
