Neil Gaiman Will Voice Snowball II in THE SIMPSONS Treehouse of Horror XXVIII CORALINE Segment
Neil Gaiman took to Twitter to reveal that he will be voicing a character in The Simpsons that has never spoken before in the upcoming Halloween special "Treehouse of Horror XXVIII". It was also revealed that the segment will be a Coraline parody, which the author wrote, which is pretty rad.
After he asked fans to guess which character he’d be voicing, it was revealed that he would be playing the Simpsons family cat Snowball II. Gaiman then posted an image from the segment featuring Lisa and Snowball II crawling through the dark path that leads to the eerie world of the button-eyed Other Mother and Other Father.
I am on the Simpsons Treehouse of Horror this year. I do not play myself this time. Instead I voice a character who has not spoken before.— Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) September 21, 2017
I always enjoy watching the Treehouse of Horror Halloween specials, and it's looking like this one is shaping up to be a good one. It will also include The Exorcist director William Friedkin. Here are the details on the segment he'll be involved with:
Friedkin will play Dr. Kenneth Humphries in a chapter titled “MMM… Homer,” which finds Homer cannibalizing himself after he runs out of food while Marge and the kids are away from home. We can’t say for sure how Dr. Humphries will factor into Homer’s predicament, but we hope he’ll offer some much-needed medical advice — perhaps something along the lines of, “Stop eating yourself!”
"Treehouse of Horror XXVIII" will air Sunday, October 22nd. Are you excited about Gaiman's involvement?
