Sarah Michelle Gellar and Sarah Silverman will additionally join the three Hollywood beauties to reprise their roles as Bart's former girlfriends in the same episode that is set to air this fall.
Not less than five renowned actresses will lend their voices in one upcoming episode of "The Simpsons". Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Zooey Deschanel, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Sarah Silverman will join forces to support the animated comedy and reprise their roles as Bart's old flames.
"Black Swan" beauty Portman will return as the voice of Darcy (from season 18), "The Dark Knight Rises" star Hathaway will voice Jenny (from season 20), "New Girl" leading lady Deschanel will return as Mary Spuckler (from season 19), "Ringer" star Gellar will reprise Gina (from season 15), while comedienne Silverman will once again lend her voice for Nikki (from season 21).
These five characters will pop up briefly in early of the episode titled "Moonshine River", which is slated to air this fall. According to Entertainment Weekly, when "Bart learns that Mary has relocated to New York, he decides that she's the one that got away and embarks on a mission to track her down."
"Any resemblance between this episode and Breakfast at Tiffany's is completely coincidental," said Tim Long, who wrote the episode, about the storyline. On why a lot of Bart's former girlfriends appear at the same time, he reasoned, "It was a way to acknowledge that for a 10-year-old boy, Bart has gotten a lot of action."
"We thought it might be fun to borrow/pay homage to/steal an idea from High Fidelity and have him go on a romantic pilgrimage and visit the girls that he dated and try to figure out how the hell he screwed things up with each of them... I don't want to give away too much, but he realizes that maybe there's something wrong with him after all," Long explained.
Also listed as voice guests in the same episode are Steve Carell, Jennifer Tilly, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein.
