The 28th annual ‘Treehouse of Horror’ episode of “The Simpsons” is headed our way this coming October, part of the animated series’ 29th season.
We know that the episode will feature a parody of The Exorcist, and FOX has brought the perfect person on board for a role.
TV Line reports tonight that William Friedkin, director of The Exorcist, will provide the voice for a character named Dr. Kenneth Humphries in ‘Treehouse of Horror XXVIII.‘ He will appear in a chapter titled “MMM… Homer,” which “finds Homer cannibalizing himself after he runs out of food while Marge and the kids are away from home.”
On a related note, Ben Daniels, star of “The Exorcist” TV series, will be voicing a priest in the aforementioned segment that parodies The Exorcist.
This year’s Halloween special airs Sunday, October 22 at 8/7.
