I think the "actual" ones are more likely an "artist's impression" of what the actual ones might look like. They, and Bart, don't look like the real deal, and I doubt the real pictures would be out there without any sort of official announcement or acknowledgement or whatever.

I really hope this is the real deal, but I wouldn't take the picture that accompanied the article as proof of any kind.

I would have liked to see them on Futurama instead. Somehow I think it would be a better fit.

Agreed. They don't even know for sure whether Bret and Jemaine will be playing themselves yet. :lol:

Great job, mock! :thumb:

I'll say I'd make an actual point to watch The Simpsons if this happens. I still think the Sesame Street idea is better.

I honestly had no clue Sam Neill was a Kiwi. I thought he was, um, Australian. :worry:

I still love their appearance on Bro'Town. And the Drinky crow show.

I'm still floored about the Simpsons turning down Becks. FTW?

The only reason I know Sam Neill is a kiwi is because he was in a kiwi film called Sleeping Dogs that Netflix recommended to me. It was pretty boring though.

I think by now Americans know who David Beckham is, but we don't care ( :P ) so that could be why they didn't use him.

my hubby and I used to crack up everytime we watched Drinky Crow on SNL (that's where it started, right?)

"$2...$2... $2......'dook dook dook'"

So I was tickled when they got a show on Adult Swim AND THEN our guys were on there......SWEET! :thumb:

Guys! Do Futurama and Sesame Street! Not no stinking Simpsons. :P

Yellow pages: Simpsons writer guests at conference

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Simpsons" executive producer Tim Long, one of the "Canadian Mafia" of series writers that also includes Joel Cohen and Jeff Westbrook, will take part in the first-ever Toronto Screenwriting Conference, set for this Saturday and Sunday at the Ryerson University Ted Rogers School of Management.

Long confesses that he's put more than a few Canadian references into the long-running cartoon sitcom. However, he asserts that his American co-workers are equally guilty.

"I'm very wary of being the guy who pitches the Canadian jokes," says Long, 40.

"But what often happens is that we'll be talking about Canada and then the other guys will get all excited about it just because it seems so exotic and then they'll start pitching the jokes because they think it's so funny. Like the city of Winnipeg gets mentioned way more on our show than any other show but that's not because the Canadians are pitching it, it's just because everyone is amazed that there's a city called Winnipeg."

Executive producer of The Simpsons since 2004 and a writer for the show for 11 years, Long was born in Brandon, Manitoba and grew up in Exeter, Ontario (population 4,000), home to North America's only indigenous population of white squirrels.

Long will be presenting two Q&A sessions at the conference. He just finished writing and producing a special musical episode of The Simpsons entitled "Elementary School Musical." This episode, slated to be the Simpsons' season premiere this year, features three original songs by Long -- one sung by the cast of Fox-TV's Glee, and the other two performed by Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie of HBO's Flight of the Conchords.

From 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Sunday, Ellen Besen will speak on hybrid and animation filmmaking.

A former faculty member of Sheridan College's School of Animation (1987-2002) and infamous workaholic, Besen has been working in the field of animation for over 35 years. She is an award-winning animation filmmaker (independent and National Film Board of Canada), creative program director of the Kalamazoo Animation Festival International from 2007-09, animation film theorist and author of Animation Unleashed.

Her films have been shown in multiple international festivals, and her film analysis workshops are featured at such festivals as the Ottawa International Animation Festival. Renowned as a specialist in animation storytelling, Besen has written popular series for Animation World Network on such topics as animation and analogy, and continues to teach the principles of animation filmmaking on an intensive one-on-one basis. Work in progress includes her next film, Elusive Hearts (working title), and her next book, Whole Cloth Storytelling (working title).

Also taking part in the Toronto Screenwriting Conference will be Chuck Tatham, the Ontario-born executive producer of How I Met Your Mother. He'll be presenting two Q&A sessions.

Born in Listowel, Ontario and raised in Guelph, Ontario, Tatham left advertising -- he was a copywriter in Toronto for prestigious clients like "The Brick" – and moved to Los Angeles in 1991. He has done punch-up and rewrite work on such high-profile feature films as Shrek 3 and Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Presenting two Q&A sessions, Rhett Reese has written screenplays for Pixar Animation Studios (Monsters, Inc.), Walt Disney Pictures, Walt Disney Feature Animation (Dinosaur), Nickelodeon and Warner Brothers (Clifford's Really Big Movie), among others.

Although 400 spots to the Toronto Screenwriting Conference were available, organizers were unable to say how many tickets had been sold as of Wednesday. Admission is $369 Canadian.

Other confirmed guest stars for the new season include several Glee cast members and Flight of the Conchords for the season premiere; Daniel Radcliffe and Alyson Hannigan in the latest Treehouse of Horror; and Martha Stewart. Russell Brand has also been hyping the fact that he's been asked to lend his voice to an episode, though insiders tell us he hasn't yet done so.
