In its 23rd season on Fox, "The Simpsons" will feature guest appearances by an Academy Award-winning actress, a box office star and an NBA legend, reports TV Squad.
The show announced upcoming guest spots featuring Oscar winner Halle Berry, “40-Year-Old Virgin” actor Paul Rudd and former NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
Berry’s episode will air in 2011 and will include a takeoff on Oscar acceptance speeches, featuring Bart and Homer fighting over an award.
Rudd’s episode, also slated for next year, will have him playing Dr. Zander, a shrink who heads up a "fathering enrichment class," when Homer is admonished for his negative fathering of Bart after an incident is caught on the JumboTron. The same episode will also feature NBA legend Abdul-Jabbar.
