42 Non-Actor Cameos On The Simpsons We Nearly Forgot About
After 33 seasons, you’re actually in the minority if you haven’t cameoed on The Simpsons. There’s Katy Perry’s iconic line “That’s not my belly button, but I didn’t say stop,” Anthony Bourdain’s “There’s nowhere I won’t go, and nothing I won’t eat… as long as I’m paid in emeralds and and my hotel room has a bidet that shoots warm champagne,” and Troy Aikman’s simple, universal truth: “Everyone likes dune buggies.” They got the likes of Stephen Hawking, who “had a tremendous sense of humor” to come on – with the stipulation that his character could have one beer with Homer, but could not get drunk. Stan Lee came by to offer some advice to Bart: “If you fail, you can always open up a comic book store.” They even managed to snag Yo-Yo Ma, who happened to have been a Harvard dorm mate of producer Al Jean’s. But the crown jewel, the uncontested champion of Simpsons cameos, the pinnacle of celebrity itself is of course… Sting.
