Actor Phil Hartman, who died in 1998, was the most recurring male guest actor on the show, appearing 52 times.

In addition to the show's regular cast of voice actors, celebrity guest stars have been a staple of The Simpsons, an American animated television sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company, since its first season. The Simpsons focuses on the eponymous family, which consists of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie. The family was initially conceived by Groening for a series of animated shorts, which originally aired as a part of The Tracey Ullman Show between 1987 and 1989. The shorts were developed into a half-hour prime time series which began in December 1989.[1] The series' 32nd season debuted on September 27, 2020 and 703 episodes of The Simpsons have aired. A feature film adaptation of the series called The Simpsons Movie, was released in 2007.

Guest voices have come from a wide range of professions, including actors, athletes, authors, musicians, artists, politicians and scientists. In the show's early years most guest stars voiced original characters, but as the show has continued the number of those appearing as themselves has increased.

The first credited guest star was Marcia Wallace who appeared in "Bart the Genius" in her first stint as Bart's teacher Edna Krabappel. Singer Tony Bennett was the first guest star to appear as himself, appearing briefly in the season two episode "Dancin' Homer". Several guest stars have featured as recurring characters on the show, including Phil Hartman, Joe Mantegna and Kelsey Grammer. After Wallace, Hartman made the most appearances, guest starring 52 times. Mantegna has appeared over thirty times, Grammer, Maurice LaMarche, Jon Lovitz and Frank Welker have appeared twenty times or more; Glenn Close and Jackie Mason have appeared over ten times, while Albert Brooks, Michael Dees, Dana Gould, Terry W. Greene, Valerie Harper, Jan Hooks, Jane Kaczmarek, Stacy Keach, Kipp Lennon, Dawnn Lewis, J. K. Simmons, Sally Stevens, George Takei and Michael York have made over five appearances.

Three guest stars, Ricky Gervais, Seth Rogen and Pete Holmes, earned writing credits for the episodes in which they appeared. Grammer, Mason and three-time guest star Anne Hathaway all won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for guest voice roles on the show. The show was awarded the Guinness World Record for "Most Guest Stars Featured in a TV Series" in 2010. As of April 18, 2021, there have been 898 guest stars on the show[A], with this figure rising to 902 if The Simpsons Movie is included.

History[edit]

Guest stars have appeared on The Simpsons since its first season, in addition to the show's main cast of Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer and supporting cast of Tress MacNeille, Pamela Hayden, Maggie Roswell, Chris Edgerly, Grey Griffin, Alex Désert, Eric Lopez, Tony Rodríguez and former supporting cast members Russi Taylor, Marcia Mitzman Gaven, Karl Wiedergott, Doris Grau, Jo Ann Harris, Susan Blu and Christopher Collins.[2] Kevin Michael Richardson started as a recurring guest star in the twenty first season, but joined the supporting cast in the twenty eighth, starting with the episode "The Last Traction Hero".

Guest voices have come from a wide range of professions, including actors, athletes, authors, musicians, artists, politicians and scientists. In the earlier seasons, most of the guest stars voiced characters, but eventually more started appearing as themselves.[3] The first male guest star was actor Sam McMurray, who voiced a worker at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant in "Homer's Odyssey", the show's third episode, and Marcia Wallace was the first female guest star on the show starting from Bart the Genius as Edna Krabappel and Ms. Melon. Singer Tony Bennett was the first guest star to appear as himself, appearing in the season two episode "Dancin' Homer" while Aerosmith were the first band with their cameo in the third season's "Flaming Moe's"

Several guest stars have made multiple appearances on the show, often as recurring characters. Actress Marcia Wallace guest starred 176 times, making her the most recurring female guest star on the show, until her death in 2013. Edna Krabappel was then retired from the show, but sometimes appears as a ghost, and actor Phil Hartman guest-starred in 52 episodes, more than any other male actor, although his initial role in the second season episode "Bart Gets Hit By a Car" in 1991 was intended to be a one-off.[4] He voiced the recurring characters Troy McClure and Lionel Hutz as well as numerous other one-time characters, until his death in 1998. McClure and Hutz were subsequently retired from the show.[5] Actor Kelsey Grammer first appeared as Sideshow Bob in the first-season episode "Krusty Gets Busted" while actor Joe Mantegna made his first appearance as Fat Tony in the third season episode "Bart the Murderer". The two have appeared in 21 and 28 episodes respectively; Mantegna also appeared in the film. Both roles were originally written for other actors: Bob was originally to be voiced by James Earl Jones,[6] who later guest starred three times on the show, while Fat Tony was written for Sheldon Leonard.[4] Other repeat guest stars include Albert Brooks, Glenn Close, Jan Hooks, Maurice LaMarche, Jon Lovitz, Jane Kaczmarek, Jackie Mason, Charles Napier and Frank Welker.

According to Groening, guest star choices "come from the writers saying, 'Wouldn't it be cool to have [such a person on the show]?'",[7] while showrunner Al Jean has stated the reasoning is "we want to meet our heroes."[8] Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein, showrunners of the seventh and eight seasons, favored guest stars with what they felt were unique and interesting voices such as actors R. Lee Ermey, Donald Sutherland, Kirk Douglas and Lawrence Tierney.[9] In 2014, Jean stated that fewer people would be appearing as themselves, as the staff did not want it to become a "crazy roster".[10]

Many guest stars come into the show's recording studio to record their parts,[7] although some are recorded over the telephone.[11] Three guest stars have been credited with writing the episode in which they guest starred. Comedian Ricky Gervais wrote the episode "Homer Simpson, This Is Your Wife",[12] while actor Seth Rogen co-wrote the episode "Homer the Whopper" with Evan Goldberg, and comedian Pete Holmes wrote the two-part "Warrin' Priests" episodes.[13] Two guest stars were credited with pseudonyms. Actor Dustin Hoffman was credited as "Sam Etic" for the episode "Lisa's Substitute" while musician Michael Jackson was credited as "John Jay Smith" for the episode "Stark Raving Dad". After the latter episode, the producers decided that if a celebrity wished to guest star on the show, they had to be willing to be credited under their real name.[14]

Numerous people have rejected the chance to appear on the show. Actor William Shatner has been described as the first person to reject the show.[15] The producers have consistently failed to persuade any former President of the United States to appear.[8] Musicians Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan have also rejected multiple invitations to guest star on the series.[16][17] Other people to turn the show down include actors Michael Caine,[18] Tom Cruise,[19] Clint Eastwood and Anthony Hopkins[20] and director Quentin Tarantino.[21] Musician Prince turned down a role in a sequel to "Stark Raving Dad", which meant the script was never produced.[22]

Others have accepted the offer, but have been unable to record a role. Musician Frank Zappa and actor Anthony Perkins both became too ill to record their parts,[20][23] while Jim Carrey had to drop out due to time constraints,[24] and Faye Dunaway cancelled.[25] Christopher Walken originally agreed appear as himself in "Insane Clown Poppy". However, he then decided to demand a lot more money than the producers were willing to pay. Instead, Jay Mohr provided the voice of Walken. In the end credits, Jay Mohr is actually credited with the voice of Christopher Walken, the credit says "Jay Mohr as Christopher Walken". This is the first time this has ever been done.

Robby Krieger of The Doors recorded a cameo for the episode "The Great Money Caper", but his part was cut because the writers felt his appearance seemed too forced. The scene was later included on the season's DVD release.[26] Similarly, actress Catherine O'Hara recorded the voice of Colette the waitress in "Flaming Moe's", but was redubbed with Jo Ann Harris who the producers felt was a better fit.[27] Ron Howard, in what would have been his third appearance on The Simpsons, was advertised as guest starring on "Children of a Lesser Clod".[28] However, he did not appear for any recording sessions. Similarly, Werner Herzog was advertized as guest starring in "Thanksgiving of Horror", in what would have been his third appearance as Walter Hotenhoffer,[29] but didn't appear in the final episode.

Mason, Grammer and Anne Hathaway have each won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for their guest voice roles on the show.[30] The show was awarded the Guinness World Record for "Most Guest Stars Featured in a TV Series" on May 23, 2010, with Guinness estimating that the show has featured "at least 555 as of series 21".[31] As of April 18, 2020, there have been 898 guest stars on the show, totaling 1532 guest spots.[A] These figures rise to 902 and 1540 respectively if The Simpsons Movie is counted as well.

  • In the No. column:
    • The first number refers to the order it aired during the entire series.
    • The second number refers to the episode number within its season: i.e. 1506 would be the sixth episode of the fifteenth season.
  • The production code refers to the code assigned to the episode by the production team. The first two characters refer to the season the episode was made for. The first season is 7Gxx, the second is 7Fxx, the third is 8Fxx and the fourth is 9Fxx. After that, the fifth season started with 1F and continued in order until season nine (which was 5F). Starting with season ten, the production codes started with AABF, with the first letter changing for each season (i.e. BABF, CABF, etc.). The number at the end of the code is the order in which that episode was produced during that production run.[32]
  • Guests with "(archival)" after their names refer to cases where roles were not recorded specifically for the episode, but instead archival audio and/or footage from independent sources was used in the episode.

Potential guest stars that didn't happen[edit]

Season Guest star Role(s) No. Prod. code Episode title
1 James Earl Jones Sideshow Bob 012–112 7G12 "Krusty Gets Busted"
Notes: Jones was the original choice for the role of Sideshow Bob, until producers decided on Kelsey Grammer instead. Jones would go on to guest voice several times on the show still, starting in the very next season.[244]
2 Ron Taylor Bleeding Gums Murphy 018–205 7F05 "Dancin' Homer"
Notes: Taylor was originally going to reprise the role of Bleeding Gums Murphy from "Moaning Lisa", but couldn't record the part because he was in New York at the time, so Daryl Coley took over for him.[245]
2 William Shatner
Bruce Springsteen
Themselves 024–211 7F11 "One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish"
Notes: Larry King's role was originally intended for Shatner and Springsteen, but both rejected the offer. Shatner turned the offer down because he thought the producers were going to make fun of his speech patterns.[246]
3 George Takei Akira 038–303 7F23 "When Flanders Failed"
Notes: Scheduling conflicts stopped Takei from reprising his role as Akira from "One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish" so cast member Hank Azaria did an impression of Takei. While Takei would appear in other roles following this, Azaria would then continue to voice Akira for most of the series from then on, until Takei would reprise the role over 20 years later in "What Animated Women Want".[247]
3 Sheldon Leonard Fat Tony 039–304 8F03 "Bart the Murderer"
Notes: Originally the producers wanted Leonard, but he turned down the role of Fat Tony that would go to Joe Mantegna.[248]
3 Catherine O'Hara Collette the Waitress 045–310 8F08 "Flaming Moe's"
Notes: O'Hara recorded all her lines for Collette, but the producers felt that her voice didn't suit the character so used supporting cast member Jo Ann Harris' temp track instead, whereby Harris had done an impression of Shelley Long's character of Diane Chambers from Cheers. O'Hara was still credited at the end of the episode despite all of her dialogue being replaced.[249]
3 Bruce Springsteen Himself 048–313 8F11 "Radio Bart"
Notes: Springsteen rejected the show for the second time with his part going to Sting instead.[250]
3 Carlton Fisk
Rickey Henderson
Nolan Ryan
Ryne Sandberg
Themselves 052–317 8F13 "Homer at the Bat"
Notes: These were some of the known baseball stars approached to guest star, only to turn the offer down.[251]
3 Marcia Wallace Edna Krabappel 052–317 8F13 "Homer at the Bat"
Notes: Originally guest star José Canseco was slated to wake up in bed with Edna and miss the game in a parody of Bull Durham, but Canseco's then-wife, Esther Haddad, objected. Edna's part was cut but Wallace had still recorded dialogue and was still credited at the end of the episode.[252]
4 Don Rickles Himself 067–408 9F06 "New Kid on the Block
Notes: The episode's original subplot was intended to include Rickles presenting a comedy show and Homer laughing excessively at his jokes, until Rickles ridicules him. The pair were intended to start fighting and end up having to go to court. Despite production staff being sure that Rickles would appear in the episode, he was reportedly upset by the concept of the storyline, as he did not wish to be portrayed as a "mean guy". When attending a Fox Broadcasting Company publicity event in New York City with Rupert Murdoch, creator Matt Groening was introduced by Murdoch to Rickles. Rickles began shouting at Groening, accusing him of spying on his Las Vegas act and using material from that for the episode. The cast actually had been receiving recordings from Rickles from the 1950s to use as ideas on how to get the style for his animatic portrayal.[253]
4 William Shatner
George Takei
Themselves 071–412 9F10 "Marge vs. the Monorail"
Notes: Both Star Trek actors turned down the role that went to Leonard Nimoy. Shatner turned down the show for the second time, while Takei only rejected the part because he did not want to make fun of public transportation as he was a member of the board of directors of the Southern California Rapid Transit District (now the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority). Producers had originally skipped asking Nimoy assuming he'd turn the part down, only to be pleasantly surprised when he accepted.[254]
4 Tom Cruise Tom 073–414 9F12 "Brother from the Same Planet"
Notes: The producers wrote the part of Tom for Cruise having been informed the actor was interested in guest starring, only for him to reject the part when offered. The role was offered to recurring guest Phil Hartman instead.[19]
4 Clint Eastwood
Anthony Hopkins
Anthony Perkins
Dr. Wolfe 076–417 9F15 "Last Exit to Springfield"
Notes: Both Eastwood and Hopkins turned down the role of Dr. Wolfe when offered. Perkins agreed to voice him but died before he could record any lines. The part went to cast member Hank Azaria instead.[20]
4 O.J. Simpson Himself 076–417 9F15 "Last Exit to Springfield"
Notes: Simpson was originally wanted for the guest panelist on Smartline, but he turned down the part that would go to Dr. Joyce Brothers instead. Producers later stated they were happy it turned out this way given the controversy that would later surround Simpson.[20]
4 Jon Lovitz Artie Ziff 078–419 9F16 "The Front"
Notes: Scheduling conflicts prevented Lovitz from being able to reprise his role of Artie Ziff from "The Way We Was" and Dan Castellaneta filled in the role. Lovitz would go on to voice Ziff in the future.[255]
4 Alex Rocco Roger Meyers, Jr. 078–419 9F16 "The Front"
Notes: Scheduling conflicts prevented Rocco from being able to reprise his role of Roger Meyers. Jr. from "Itchy & Scratchy & Marge" and Hank Azaria filled in the role. Azaria would continue to voice the character for the next few seasons, though Rocco did return to the role twice more.[255]
4 Jimmy Carter
Gerald Ford
Wynonna Judd
Richard Nixon
Ronald Reagan
The Rolling Stones
Themselves 081–422 9F19 "Krusty Gets Kancelled"
Notes: All of these celebrities were approached to guest star as themselves, but all turned down the offer. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones would later accept guest spots years later in "How I Spent My Strummer Vacation" and their role went to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Of the then-living ex-President of the United States offered parts only Reagan actually responded.[256]
4 Prince Leon Kompowsky ? ? Unproduced sequel to "Stark Raving Dad"
Notes: A planned follow-up to "Stark Raving Dad", the plot focused on Michael Jackson impersonator Leon Kompowsky returning to Springfield claiming to be the pop star Prince. The script was written by freelancers and polished by Conan O'Brien. According to executive producer Mike Reiss it saw Kompowsky encourage the Springfield residents to "loosen up, become more flamboyant and become more sexually open". Prince originally agreed to voice Kompowsky, but the writers discovered that Prince was referring to a different script entirely written by a friend of his. Prince disliked their script and demanded the other one be used, but the writers refused and the episode was never produced.[257]
4 Frank Zappa Himself ? ? ?
Notes: Matt Groening and Zappa were friends and mutual fans of each other's work. Zappa had agreed to a guest spot on the show sometime around season 4, but became ill and died before he could record a part.[258]
5 Phil Hartman Lionel Hutz 091–510 1F08 "$pringfield (Or, How I Learned to
Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling)
"
Notes: A scene involving Hartman as Lionel Hutz was cut for time. The scene was released as a deleted scene on the DVD set The Simpsons: The Complete Fifth Season.
5 Marvelous Marvin Hagler
Wayne Newton
Sylvester Stallone
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Bruce Willis
Themselves 091–510 1F08 "$pringfield (Or, How I Learned to
Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling)
"
Notes: Hagler was the original choice for Gerry Cooney's role while Newton was the original pick for Robert Goulet's, but both rejected the offer. There was a brief period when the episode had a different subplot that revolved around the restaurant chain Planet Hollywood. Matt Groening had been told by a spokesperson that if he put Planet Hollywood in The Simpsons, Stallone, Schwarzenegger, and Willis, would agree to make guest appearances on the show. The writers of were excited about this so they wrote a new subplot for the episode that featured Planet Hollywood and the three actors. However, for unknown reasons, they were unable to appear in the episode.[259]
5 Michael Caine Himself 094–513 1F10 "Homer and Apu"
Notes: Caine was the original choice wanted for James Woods' part, but he turned down the offer. It's possible that producers also wanted Caine to voice himself in "Burns' Heir" that was produced around the same time and only aired 5 episodes later where Dan Castellaneta did an impression of Caine, but this has not been confirmed.
5 Richard Simmons Robotic Richard Simmons 099–518 1F16 "Burns' Heir"
Notes: Simmons was interested in a guest spot but rejected the part when he learned he was going to be a robot. The scene was cut from the episode, but a version where the robot was voiced by Dan Castellaneta was shown as a deleted scene in "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular".[260]
6 Al Gore Himself 109–606 2F03 "Treehouse of Horror V"
Notes: According to Bill Oakley, Gore was asked to host the Halloween special in season 6 or 7.[261]
6 Wayne Gretzky
Bobby Orr
Themselves 111–608 2F05 "Lisa on Ice"
Notes: According to writer Mike Scully the original draft of the episode featured cameos from the two ice hockey legends, but they were ultimately cut because they had such a good family story. Gretzky would eventually guest star in the episode "The Nightmare After Krustmas" more than 20 years later.[262]
7 Faye Dunaway Herself 135–707 3F05 "King-Size Homer"
Notes: Dunaway originally agreed to voice herself in the movie Honk If You're Horny that Homer went to see in the episode, but canceled.
7 David Brinkley Himself 146–718 3F16 "The Day the Violence Died"
Notes: The producers were unable to get Brinkley to play his part, so he was instead voiced by Harry Shearer.[263]
7 William Hickey Chester J. Lampwick 146–718 3F16 "The Day the Violence Died"
Notes: Hickey was the first choice to voice Chester instead of Kirk Douglas, but he rejected the offer.[263]
7 Bob Dylan
Bruce Springsteen
Neil Young
Hole
Pearl Jam
Themselves 152–724 3F21 "Homerpalooza"
Notes: These musicians were asked to take part in the episode, but declined. While Sonic Youth did appear in the episode, according to producers they would have refused to had Courtney Love (of Hole) accepted.[264]
8 Shirley Bassey Sings "Scorpio" 155–802 3F23 "You Only Move Twice"
Notes: The producers wanted James Bond theme vocalist Bassey to sing the theme for Scoprio, but couldn't get her so Sally Stevens provided the vocals instead.[265]
8 Don King Himself 156–803 4F03 "The Homer They Fall"
Notes: King was approached to play himself but declined, so parody character Lucius Sweet replaced him voiced by Paul Winfield.[266]
8 Sheryl Crow To sing "Can I Borrow a Feeling?" 159–806 4F04 "A Milhouse Divided"
Notes: Crow was asked to sing Kirk Van Houten's song over the closing credits, but rejected the offer.[267]
8 Bob Dylan
Wallace Shawn
Coyote 162–809 3F24 "El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer
(The Mysterious Voyage of Homer)
"
Notes: Dylan was a potential choice for the voice of the Coyote instead of Johnny Cash, despite having recently rejected the show before.[268] Shawn was another potential candidate according to Bill Oakley, though he would later guest star more than 20 years later as Wallace the Hernia in "I Want You (She's So Heavy)"[269]
8 Julie Andrews Shary Bobbins 166–813 3G03 "Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala(Annoyed Grunt)cious"
Notes: The Mary Poppins actress was originally touted to play her parody, but Maggie Roswell did such a good job for the temp read that the producers decided to keep it.[270]
8 Quentin Tarantino Himself 166–813 3G03 "Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala(Annoyed Grunt)cious"
Notes: Tarantino originally agreed play himself, but didn't agree with the lines he was given and backed out. Dan Castellaneta impersonated him.
8 John Turturro Mr. Mitchell 173–820 4F16 "The Canine Mutiny"
Notes: Turturro recorded Mr. Mitchell's dialogue, but when he refused to come in again for some re-takes his audio was cut and Dan Castellaneta re-voiced the character.[271]
8 Nicolas Cage
William H. Macy
Steve Martin
Frank Grimes 176–823 4F19 "Homer's Enemy"
Notes: Martin was the original choice for the part of Frank Grimes, but he turned down the offer. He did accept the role of Ray Patterson the very next season in "Trash of the Titans" however. The role went to Hank Azaria, who based his performance of the character on Macy specifically and thought that Macy should have done it. After his performance at the table reads however the producers decided to keep Azaria as the voice. Macy would eventually guest star in the episode "Homer's Paternity Coot".[272] Cage was also another consideration until Azara's performance sealed the deal.[273]
9 Marv Albert Himself 184–906 5F03 "Bart Star"
Notes: Albert was originally going to play Roy Firestone's part as a sports radio host, but was dropped following sexual assault charges that were made against him around the time the episode was in pre-production. Albert would later appear in the episode "The Burns and the Bees".[274]
9 David Letterman
Jerry Seinfeld
Garry Shandling
Themselves 193–915 5F10 "The Last Temptation of Krust"
Notes: These comedians were other options for Jay Leno's role in the episode, with character designs even done for Shandling. Leno was the first one to commit to the episode. Letterman would later guest star in a couch gag for "The D'oh-cial Network"[275]
10 Phil Hartman Troy McClure 207–1004 AABF01 "Treehouse of Horror IX"
Notes: Troy McClure was supposed to host The World's Deadliest Executions instead of Ed McMahon, but after Hartman's tragic murder the producers decided to replace the part out of respect.[276]
10 Bruce Springsteen
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman
Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn
Bruce Willis and Demi Moore
Themselves 208–1005 5F19 "When You Dish Upon a Star"
Notes: These celebrities were all offered the parts that would go to Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger but turned down the producers. Despite turning down the show multiple times in the past, Springsteen was originally pitched as a solo celebrity visitor and when he rejected the offer it was changed to a celebrity couple.[277]
10 Rod Stewart Himself 217–1014 AABF11 "I'm with Cupid"
Notes: In early versions of the script Stewart is the musician that comes to Springfield instead of Elton John.[278]
10 Howard Stern Himself 224–1021 AABF17 "Monty Can't Buy Me Love"

11 Debbie Reynolds
Shirley Temple
Vicki Valentine 246–1120 BABF15 "Last Tap Dance in Springfield"
Notes: Producers had originally wanted Temple to play parody character Vicki Valentine, but she was unable to record the role. Reynolds was then offered the role too but never responded, leaving Tress MacNeille to voice Vicki instead.[280]
11 Drew Barrymore Becky 247–1121 BABF18 "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge"
Notes: When the staff learned that Barrymore wanted a part in an episode they wrote several scripts that might suit her. When she was offered the role of Becky or Krusty's daughter Sophie in "Insane Clown Poppy" she chose the latter and guest star Parker Posey voiced Becky instead.[281]
11 Bret Michaels Cyanide Lead Singer 247–1121 BABF18 "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge"
Notes: Michaels turned down the chance to be the lead singer of Poison tribute band Cyanide.[281]
11 Kenny Rogers Himself 248–1122 BABF19 "Behind the Laughter"
Notes: Rogers was the original choice for Willie Nelson's part. Rogers even made the writers rewrite the script to remove references to Kenny Rogers Roasters as a condition and when they did still declined.[282]
12 Christopher Walken Himself 251–1203 BABF17 "Insane Clown Poppy"
Notes: Reports of the nature of Walken not voicing himself after originally agreeing vary, from scheduling conflicts to asking for more money than the producers were willing to pay. Comedian Jay Mohr guest starred instead, doing an impersonation of Walken.
12 Robby Krieger Himself 255–1207 CABF03 "The Great Money Caper"
Notes: Krieger of The Doors had been promised a guest role on the show after the staff were allowed to use the Doors song "The End" for the episode "Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder". However, during production, executive producer Mike Scully thought that the scene stood out too much and that Krieger's cameo felt "too obviously shoe-horned in," so the scene ended up being cut from the episode. The scene was later included in The Simpsons: The Complete Twelfth Season DVD set.
12 Ron Howard Himself 268–1220 CABF16 "Children of a Lesser Clod"
Notes: Originally the third act was about the kids taking part in a film directed by Howard for what would have been his third appearance in the show, but it was changed. This is also reflected by the episode originally being titled "The Kids Stay in the Picture" instead. The producers also wanted an famous NBA player to appear in the episode, but none accepted the offer.[283]
12 Jim Carrey Hobo 269–1221 CABF17 "Simpsons Tall Tales"
Notes: Carrey had agreed to play the singing Hobo, but had to drop out due to time constraints. Hank Azaria did the voice instead.
13 Sean Connery
Lyle Lovett
Gary Oldman
Ultrahouse's celebrity voice 270–1301 CABF19 "Treehouse of Horror XII"
Notes: All of these actors were under consideration for the role that went to Pierce Brosnan, with Connery the original choice.[284]
13 George Lucas Himself 287–1318 DABF13 "I Am Furious (Yellow)"
Notes: Producers originally wanted Lucas to hang around in the Android's Dungeon instead of Stan Lee, but after initially being interested Lucas rejected the role after reading the script when he thought the writers were making too much fun of him and the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy.[285]
13 Michael Clarke Duncan John Coffey-like Prisoner 290–1321 DABF16 "The Frying Game"
Notes: While recording lines for the episode, the staff were told that Duncan was visiting the Fox studios. Having not recorded the lines for the character yet, the staff asked Duncan if he wanted to voice the parody of his role from The Green Mile, but he declined. The role went to Hank Azaria and became a recurring character voiced by both Azaria and Kevin Michael Richardson.[286]
14 Tom Brokaw Himself 294–1403 DABF20 "Bart vs. Lisa vs. the Third Grade"
Notes: Brokaw declined the offer to voice himself only because he loved Harry Shearer's impression of him so much he preferred to hear it instead.[287]
14 Harvey Fierstein Karl 308–1417 EABF12 "Three Gays of the Condo"
Notes: Fierstein was originally asked to reprise his role as Karl from the episode "Simpson and Delilah" in a cameo appearance. In the script, Homer was thrown out of the house by Marge, and encountered Karl. The purpose of the appearance was to introduce a gay couple that Homer would live with. Fierstein however felt that "the script was a lot of very clever gay jokes, and there just wasn't that Simpsons twist" and turned the role down.[288]
14 Jon Bon Jovi Himself 311–1420 EABF15 "Brake My Wife, Please"
Notes: Bon Jovi was the original choice for Jackson Browne's part. The musician had apparently been keen to guest star, but he didn't like the script, specifically a dig at his latest album and a scene where he was going to be covered in spaghetti.[289]
15 David Beckham and Victoria Beckham
David Bowie
Morrissey
Rowan Williams
Themselves 317–1504 EABF22 "The Regina Monologues"
Notes: All were potential English celebrities considered for the episode. The Beckhams were scripted to be seen bickering on the street, but were dropped when Tony Blair agreed to appear and it was deemed that they were not famous enough in the United States and so were not approached. Archbishop of Canterbury Williams was a fan of the show and included in a draft of the script acting as a tour guide and showing some of his relatives around London, but Williams had to reject the part due to other engagements. The producers wanted an English musician for a part and approached Bowie and Morrissey but could not sync up a time to record them so the part was dropped.[290]
15 Robert Stack Herself 325–1512 FABF07 "Milhouse Doesn't Live Here Anymore"
Notes: Stack was the original host of the episode instead of Isabel Sanford and even recorded his part, but he died before the episode aired and out of respect the producers recast the part.
16 Christina Aguilera Clarissa Wellington 353–1618 GABF13 "A Star Is Torn"
Notes: Aguilera turned down the role that went to Fantasia Barrino, but not before advertising in the media that she was appearing.[291]
16 Joe Mantegna Fat Tony 356–1621 GABF09 "The Father, the Son, and the Holy Guest Star"
Notes: Mantegna was touted as playing Fat Tony in listings for the episode, but didn't appear in the final broadcast.[292]
18 James Gandolfini Dante Calabresis 379–1801 HABF15 "The Mook, the Chef, the Wife and Her Homer"
Notes: Producers wanted Gandolfini to play Dante, and while The Sopranos actor was a fan of the show he turned down the role because he didn't want to play "a hood" again. Joe Pantoliano guest starred in the role instead.[293]
18 Kurt Vonnegut Himself 384–1806 HABF19 "Moe'N'a Lisa"
Notes: Gore Vidal's part was originally written for Vonnegut, who turned the offer.[294]
18 George Clooney First Mate Billy 388–1810 JABF03 "The Wife Aquatic"
Notes: Clooney turned down a chance to play a parody of his character from The Perfect Storm and it ended up going to recurring guest star Maurice LaMarche instead.[295]
18 Harry Hamlin
Peter Wolf
Themselves 394–1816 JABF06 "Homerazzi"
Notes: Both were touted as guest starring in listings for the episode, but didn't appear in the final broadcast.[296]
18 Ronaldinho Himself 395–1817 JABF10 "Marge Gamer"
Notes: Ronaldo almost fell through, so he was their backup choice had that happened.[297]
Movie Erin Brockovich
Johnny Knoxville
Themselves M1 The Simpsons Movie
Notes: Brockovich's part was cut for time and pacing.[298] According to Mike Scully in an interview, Knoxville was a potential replacement for Tom Hanks. This however may have been a joke on Scully's part given the context.[299]
Movie Minnie Driver Grievance Counselor M1 The Simpsons Movie
Notes: The whole subplot of Driver's character helping Bart get through the humiliation after the fallout of his dare with Homer was cut as the producers felt it harmed the pacing of the movie.[300]
Movie Isla Fisher Doomsday Consultant M1 The Simpsons Movie
Notes: Fisher's character and scene were cut for undisclosed reasons.[301]
Movie Kelsey Grammer Sideshow Bob M1 The Simpsons Movie
Notes: Sideshow Bob had a small cameo holding a "KILL BART" sign amongst the mob who otherwise wanted Homer dead, but it was cut from the movie.[302]
Movie Edward Norton Panicky Man M1 The Simpsons Movie
Notes: Norton's part was redubbed by Dan Castellaneta because the producers felt the Woody Allen impersonation that Norton did for the character was too distracting.[302]
Movie Dave Stewart Singing Alaska song M1 The Simpsons Movie
Notes: The Eurythmics singer recorded a song about Alaska for the movie, but the whole song ended up being cut for pacing.[303]
19 Brian Williams Himself 410–1910 KABF03 "E Pluribus Wiggum"
Notes: Williams was the first choice for Dan Rather's part, but he turned down the offer.[304]
20 Matt Damon Himself 422–2002 KABF15 "Lost Verizon"
Notes: According to early reports instead of Denis Leary is was Damon's phone that fell into Bart's hands instead. Whether Damon refused or backed out due to scheduling conflicts or another reason is unknown.[305]
20 Kenneth Branagh Tom O'Flanagan 434–2014 LABF11 "In the Name of the Grandfather"
Notes: Originally Branagh was touted as the voice of Tom instead of Colm Meaney. Why he was replaced was unknown, but according to Al Jean he recorded his parts.[306]
20 Kathy Ireland Herself 434–2014 LABF11 "In the Name of the Grandfather"
Notes: Ireland was touted as playing herself in listings for the episode. However, although she appeared in animated form in the episode, a caption stated that the producers asked her to guest voice and that she had declined. Tress MacNeille provided her vocals instead.[307]
21 Michelle Obama Herself 456–2115 MABF07 "Stealing First Base

Notes: Mason was touted as reprising his role as Krusty's father in listings for the episode, but didn't appear in the final broadcast.[309]
24 Jackie Mason Rabbi Hyman Krustofsky 530–2422 RABF17 "Dangers on a Train"
Notes: Mason was going to reprise his role as Krusty's father singing a single line in a song, but his part was cut for time.[citation needed]
25 Christiane Amanpour
Gordon Ramsay
Aaron Sorkin
Themselves 533–2503 RABF18 "Four Regrettings and a Funeral"
Notes: These television personalities were all touted as appearing in the episode, but didn't appear in the final broadcast.[310]
25 Jack Black Milo 540–2510 SABF03 "Married to the Blob"
Notes: When Black originally voiced Milo in the episode "Husbands and Knives" the producers had to call the actor back in to learn and sing What's New Pussycat? in Korean after the song Goldfinger (that he'd originally also learned and recorded in Korean for them) wasn't allowed to be used on copyright grounds. According to Matt Selman after the trouble they'd put him through they felt bad and couldn't bring themselves to get him back again, so the character of Milo was instead performed by Maurice LaMarche.[311]
26 Joe Mantegna Fat Tony 567–2615 TABF08 "The Princess Guide"
Notes: Mantegna was touted as reprising his role as Fat Tony in listings for the episode, but didn't appear in the final broadcast.[312]
28 Joe Mantegna Fat Tony 602–2806 VABF22 "There Will Be Buds"

30 Daniel Day Lewis Himself playing Sideshow Daniel Day Lewis 657–3018 YABF10 "Bart vs. Itchy & Scratchy"
Notes: A scene that never made it into the final broadcast would have featured Lewis playing a Sideshow version of himself. He passed and the scene was cut, but there was an animatic of the scene released online by Matt Selman.[315]
31 Werner Herzog Walter Hotenhoffer 670–3108 YABF17 "Thanksgiving of Horror"
Notes: Herzog was touted as guest starring in what would be his third appearance as Walter Hotenhoffer in listings for the episode, but didn't appear in the final broadcast. Herzog would appear later in the season as Dr. Lund in the episode "Screenless".
