Julian Assange to guest on 'The Simpsons'

Although he's been under house arrest in Britain, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will nevertheless have a cameo in an upcoming episode of "The Simpsons."

The controversial figure will voice the "Simpson-ized" version of himself in the 500th episode of the long-running series, which will air February 19.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Assange will serve as a sort of "new Flanders" for the animated family after they "go off the grid" once Marge and Homer learn that Springfield's residents have been holding secret meetings to try to kick them out of town.


CNN’s Kaj Larsen examined Julian Assange for CNN Presents: “WikiWars: The Mission of Julian Assange."
