A young actor who made an impact in “The Social Network” and is headed for a high-profile big-screen Western will be heard in an upcoming episode of "The Simpsons," reports Entertainment Weekly.

Armie Hammer, who played the Winklevoss twins in the Oscar-winning "Social Network," will voice the characters again when the twins appear in Fox’s long-running animated hit. The 24-year-old actor has recorded the cameo role, playing Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss in an episode called "The D’oh-cial Network."

According to executive producer Al Jean, “Lisa creates a social network site in Springfield and gives too much credit to everybody, so we thought of doing a joke involving the Winklevoss twins."

The episode will air in early 2012 on Fox.

Hammer is lined up to play the Lone Ranger opposite Johnny Depp’s Tonto in the upcoming Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer feature film on the famous masked man of the Westerns, which will be directed by “Pirates of the Caribbean” helmer Gore Verbinski, EW notes.
