Zooey Deschanel to Appear in Breakfast at Tiffany’s Style episode of The Simpsons
Zooey Deschanel, star of FOUR"s show New Girl, will reprise her role as hillbilly daughter of Cleetus – Mary Spuckler in a future episode of The Simpsons.
The episode will also feature Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Sarah Michelle Gellar – who are all Bart"s ex-girlfriends in episodes past.
Tim Long, The Simpsons Consulting Producer who wrote episode "Moonshine River" told Entertainment Weekly it was a way to acknowledge that, for a 10-year-old boy, Bart has had a lot of action over the years.
"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," he says.
"I don"t want to give away too much, but he realizes that maybe there"s something wrong with him after all."
When Bart discovers Mary has moved to New York, he makes it his mission to track her down.
"Any resemblance between this episode and Breakfast at Tiffany"s is completely coincidental," says Long.
"Moonshine River" is an upcoming episode of The Simpsons in Season 24.
The 500th episode screens on FOUR this Sunday at 7.30pm. Check out a sneak peek of the episode with our videos here.
